I got a great compliment from a customer this week, the owner of a large custom residential project we are finishing up: (to paraphrase)-“You guys are the best with service and follow-ups of anybody we deal with, and not just contractors on the house, but companies in general.” It’s not the first time we received a compliment like this, customer service is an important driving factor that distinguishes our company from others, inside the industry and out. Are we perfect, far from it, we tend to dote on projects in construction especially; but, we do try to provide responsive, personalized customer service.
This is especially an issue with contractors. I wish I could bottle this concept for perspective customers at times when I am on my third unreturned call to a painting company for a sub-contract within the span of the week. With contractors especially, there are two important criteria for assessing quality- both workmanship and service!
