Contractor recommendation thread
since there are a lot of threads popping up on various neighborhood forums asking for contractor recommendations: Roofers, door/window guys, tree service, etc. why not make a forum specifically for this?
If I need somebody to do work at my house or my dad's house, I'll ask friends and family first for recommendations. Then I'll come on here, PhiladelphiaSpeaks to see if anyone else has a suggestion.
I don't need a yellow pages anymore.
Over the last few years I've used a few that I was very happy with. I've also had a landscaper/tree guy who I would not recommend.
I have no financial interest in anyone I would recommend, so it's not about that. It's just a thought.
Good idea...Ive been thinking about this. The only potential drawback will be for people who would instinctively post in their neighborhood section looking for a local guy. Perhaps we can create a 'format' for the Contractors Corner where people specify location in the Subject..... I will talk to Wil and get back with you.
IMO, when it comes down to it, anyone working in Phila is a "local guy" to me.
These people will travel for the jobs. It's the customers who need to do their homework and be satisfied with the price, response time, etc.
I'm a contractor, and I know quite a few, we all work in Philadelphia, all neighborhoods. I don't know anyone who only works Fairmount or Mt. Airy. Only exception is the North East, it's like a different town, people stay up there and we don't go up there. Usually...
Besides, isn't Home section the defacto contractor section?
It is....but Ive had a few requests for contractor section...and I remember that it was hard to find them on PB since they were posted all over the place.
