New here

New to the site, Been in the preservation game on and off for a few years. I'm shifting my focus on more preservation work, less of my previous line (commercial maintenance).

I'm a small company located in ct. Working alot with ams as of late, but looking to spread my eggs around other baskets. Suggestions are welcome.



Looking forward to learning more. I firmly believe the day you can't learn anything new, is the day you can't be taught.

Your other maintenance work must really suck to accept the low low wages of P&P these days.

I cringe when I see folks that want to make P&P their main source of income.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Stop doing any and all preservation work and stick to what you know.

Expand your client base with same skill sets.

As a Property Preservation contractor you are considered a jack of all trades. I'd suggest cross-marketing your skills to different types of clients who require all of the same skill sets. There are plenty of clients locally around you that need your services. Especially at the prices you are doing the work for right now.

If you are working solely for property preservation rates, I would suggest another market altogether.

It all depends on who you are working for, some still pay well and on time.
