Report: 40% of Inquiries to Home Services Companies Are Ignored
Nearly 40% of home service companies don’t respond to customer inquiries, a recent study from Valve + Meter finds. The report was generated by using a secret shopper to submit lead forms, appointment requests, quote estimates, and other service inquiry forms for 466 home service companies across the U.S. Response times were tracked for up to five days.
While many companies responded, with the fastest company responding in less than two minutes, nearly 40% did not respond at all in the allotted five-day tracking period. Additionally, the report found that 55% of home service companies did not respond within 24 hours and only 37% of companies called back after the inquiries.
Valve + Meter is a performance marketing agency based in Indianapolis focusing on results driven strategy, content, and outbound lead generation.

(Feb 08 2017)Here we are, 2017, my 25th year in business. It was in the fall of 1992 that I started to figure "it" out. I'm still figuring "it" out.
Here's two things that are certain
1. If quality construction is important to you, it will be nearly impossible for you to find a contractor that will build a better deck than me.
2. Your investment in your home improvement project, is safe with me. With most of the others, you're rolling the dice! Do that in Las Vegas, not here! Come to think of it, bad game. Don't roll dice at all.
The headlines read Big time skilled labor shortage, nationwide "That's an understatement! I've struggled all year to findqualified carpenters"Frank 5/04/16 Your options aren't as plentiful as they used to be, but you may have found the right contractor here.

"One carpenter's concept of high quality is often, what I consider crap. Let me assure you that, my goal is to do an outstanding job from start to finish. And I reach my goals!" - Frank Lamphere
Don't miss this little nugget, below! The annual cost vs. value report
Quality is very important to most people. It's highly unlikely that you will be able to find a deck builder that is able to beat my quality.
Service is important. Starting a project at an agreed upon time and completing the project within a reasonable time. We've got this one down pat! Construction management? CRACK! (sound of a whip) Rawhide! I'm on it.

please leave a concise message (I'll be supplying material to a job, applying for permits, estimating, digging holes, writing & sending contracts, performing a deck inspection, reading a story to my kiddies, singing a Sinatra tune in a nightclub, and just generally running around like a maniac. Like most people.)
