I'm pretty much in the same boat. Out of the last 16 months only had 2 weeks with nothing to do. No backlog to speak of but the phone seems to ring just as we're finishing up a job. All word of mouth referrals.I actually expect my numbers for 2009 to be pretty good.
At this time if you don't have repeat customers or customers advertising for you things could be tough! There hace been many companies go out of business around here and I've never seen so manny tools for sale on craigslist.
ive hired 6 guys in last 2 months .lots of multitasking around here keeping occupied.plumbing is slow this week but have electrical backed up till middle of feb,hvac is being good this winter with all the snow,making up for cold summer with few a/c calls! lots of plumbing work bid out just waiting for warm weather to start doing ground works :thumbsup:
