Why Window Guys Shouldn't Do Lights

I saw the lights on the woodwork of this house were very straight from the neighbors home I was working on. I thought surely someone would not staple lights to a 1.5 million dollar home. As I got closer I could see someone had put hundreds of staples into the woodwork.

I could not resist leaving my card with a note on it pointing out the problem and telling them I do several of their neighbors homes. I did indeed get a call and the home owners had no idea staples had been put in their woodwork. This was the second year the lights had been put on the home!

I think this is looking to be my first new customer for 2013.

Neighbors House

This is the house across the street that we did. It was the last new client I picked up this year. Between the lights and some minor tree trimming it was a decent $3500 job. I think next year we'll be adding a bunch more. This house had a metal roof but the slope was so gentle it was a super easy install.
