Are they really finding people with those prices? Sounds to me like they are a local guy subbing out another local guys work who is getting it from a regional who is getting it from a national. Some of those prices don't even pay for the materials.

This looks like FNMA work. Looks like they are paying the same and some items better than Safeguard did.

I work with Assero.

The assreo price sheet looks a little better than what most nationals are paying right now. The flat rate system is designed so that the vendor loses in the long run.
