ACORD – Where are the contractors in this recession?

To the Editor:

How can anyone say that the recession is over? I haven’t seen a recovery, but I also haven’t seen the local general contractors making a reasonable effort to work for “small” projects. I have contacted many (roughly 4-5) to come look at a possible remodel job. They have either showed up and never gave a bid or never returned calls. Unfortunately, I can’t feel sorry for these contractors for struggling. A small job that may have paid big or a large job that barely makes ends meet are the same. It’s what puts food on the table. This remodel project could have equated out to a LARGE sum of money, but you lost out to someone who is willing to come from the city for the work (not necessarily for the money). I think as we look at the recession, in the past, present and the future, we need to rethink our goals and mission for the companies that want to work.
