this is email I sent

I received this price list from these people out of the blue, never heard of them. This was my reply.

What I think you are looking for with these prices is some illegal alien that does not pay taxes or speaks any English or has any insurance. Because with a price sheet like this that is all you are getting.
If you can't provide decent wages then either do it yourself or don't take an area you can't cover.
Companies like yours are ruining this industry.

We all have to start somewhere. It's the company that got me into this industry, needless to say I am no longer with them and now direct with the brothers.

This was the toughest thing to learn. I don't need every job. I honestly don't even want high volume or any volume for that matter. I want good jobs with 300% margins and little to no QC. We find them on occasion and lately we have been getting more and more residential work. Replacing patio doors, installing drop ceilings, putting down tile floors, windows and siding. That kind of stuff.

We are getting $600.00 a square for siding and I can't get that from a national.

We were getting 1200-1500 a window back in 2000 before the window worlds ruined the market. All you have to do is know how to sell. You won't get 600 a square by showing up with a tape measure and giving a price. I have a bag of goodies and do an entire presentation with Power point and laptop. It's a great presentation, filled with befores and afters along with testimonials. We close about 85% of what we pitch. We just don't pitch that many.
