I don't mess with them, because they've been bid down so low. I feel like it's putting hours on a machine just for revenue; not profit. I'd much rather have residential, as you're not bidding for the work. If you've got a good reputation, you'll make a lot more money per hours invested.

The big guy around here said he just dropped cards at every business he saw. He only does a couple very large complexes, because he has two 10.5' machines and 8 guys that can get them done in a single day. Complex managers don't want crews around the property any more than they have to.
