Comment Policy

Comment Policy

We appreciate comments on our website. Whether you agree or disagree, or just want to add to what’s being said, we want to hear from you. That’s the purpose of commenting. If you comment for the sole purpose of driving someone to your website for your business, we’ll probably delete the link and we might delete your comment.

Please treat our website like it’s our home. And we’ll respond in kind. If you behave respectfully, we’ll treat you respectfully. If you’re rude and offensive, we’ll ask you to leave.

Here are a few guidelines you need to follow on our website:

  1. Be respectful. Don’t use foul language. You may encounter an article that upsets you, and you can certainly speak out your mind about the subject and politely criticize the post, in a creative fashion, but don’t start any flame wars with us or fellow commentators or you’ll get your comment deleted. If you’re provoked, don’t respond. Send us a note and we’ll deal with it. Be courteous and we’ll all benefit.
  2. Be succinct. Make your comments short and to the point or you’ll be ignored. People don’t want to read ramblings or long comments.
  3. Be on topic. Don’t ramble about dishonest contractors when the subject is marketing. It’s true many things are connected, but keep it within limits.
  4. It’s not respectful to go to a party at someone’s home and tell everyone to leave for your party instead. Now, if you treat the host well and let others know you care, they might be interested in finding out what your party is about.
    So don’t market your products or services, and don’t link back to your website in your comment. If you do, we’ll delete the link (and we might delete the comment). If your comments have value, eventually visitors will want to learn more about you.
  5. Don’t copy and paste information from the internet in the comment field. If you want readers to see another article, link to it. Copying is considered plagarism and we can be penalized for it. If the information is valuable and applicable, link to it.

Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide quality information and tools to general and specialty construction business owners (both residential and commercial) with the goal of helping their contracting businesses survive and thrive. We strive to deliver our products and services in a timely and service-oriented manner, both because it is how we want to be treated and to set a positive example for our clients.

What We Believe

What We Believe

  • A construction-related business has the right and the responsibility to charge a fair price for their work, a price that enables them to pay their business bills, support their family and their employee’s families, and set aside a profit for stability.
  • A contractor’s business should provide enough income to adequately support their family. If not, it’s a hobby, not a business.
  • Contractors have the right and the responsibility to write contracts that are a win-win document for both their client and their business.
  • A construction contractor should do what is on their contract, to the very best of their ability, and never cut corners at the client’s expense.
  • Relationships between general contractors, specialty contractors and suppliers can and should be win-win relationships, and should provide a reasonable standard of living for all parties.
  • A construction business owner has a responsibility to conduct business in a professional manner. This includes returning phone calls and showing up for appointments on time.
