We presented a bid to refinish eight decks for a condo association and were informed that someone offered to do it for 40% less than us. I reworked the numbers and felt that our price was reasonable. As a cost saving measure The Condo Association selects the lower bidder. Conclusion: the decks need to be redone; the contractor splashed stain/sealer onto the roof, metal flashings, gutter, AC unit, door threshold(s), painted wood trim and recently painted metal railing. Stain/Sealer cannot be removed from a rubber roof, and it will cost the association far more than our original estimate to complete the remaining repairs. BTW, lowest bidder did not have insurance.

“Lon, the basement is beautiful, it's finished, and we love the space. Finishing the window couldn't compare to the value of every dollar poured into our deck! I love that space! :-) - Seema, - Morton Grove
“Lon, do you realize how far ahead of the competition you are? Based on your performance you really need to raise your rates.”- Bill – Lincoln Park
