Like to hear if anyone else has had a situation like I did today.
First I should explain that I'm a G.C and have been in business for about 5yr.
I went to look at a remodel job on a bathroom for a customer.
Customer wanted to know what the difference in price would be between re-tiling a shower/tub area VS installing cultured marble or a similar product.
So I set out to a place called Princess marble the marble store by my house. I ask to talk to someone about the price per sq ft of cultured marble.
The secratary says she'll get someone, Two minutes later she comes back to tell me that thier company isn't taking on any new clients. NO sorry, No explination. No, we are back logged. Nothing!!
So I leave @#$$# pissed off. I call to talk to someone higher up about the situation. And hopefully get an explination!!!
The secratary says She'll let me talk to the person in charge of sales. She also appoligizes for what happened earlier. So I talk to this REP.
This Rep basicly tells me where to stick it. Says 80% of his business come from 10 big contracts. I told him treating potential contractor like that and his business will never grow. He tells me he doesn't want his business to grow, He doesn't care what I think, or what I say to my clients about his company. Big Balls for someone who doesnt know if I do 1 bathroom remodel a year or 100.
