They're called stock photos. When building a website not everyone has a protofolio of pictures to choose from. Some people never even think to take pictures until AFTER they get a site.

I have stock photos and so does 99% of the web. If you consider that false advertising you might as well go after EVERY company. Espically web development companies.

I've been following it since he first started posting. Everyone takes a job that they either over or under estimate at one time.

I know I did. Two years ago and I'm still hurting from it lol

I agree with you on this, we will be the first to admit that you know maybe we should have done more research before we said sure we would do the job. But we said we would do it we are going to finish it and that's all that matters! That's what makes a good company one that completes a project no matter what the cost.

We paid a lot of money to have a site put up and professionally built. Am I happy with it no I am not but its bought paid for end of story, yes there is several stock photos on the site, I took over a family business, I don't have time to go to every site and shoot pictures of our work all day. I'm still trying to learn the ropes of this family business. I would hope in time that we can replace the stock photos with work of our own.

Then lets see Some real pictures of you're Work. Not stock pics you've stolen. Do you guys own 15 scrapers? Because you have a pic of them on your website.

I remember when a hundred grand got you a nice excavator, not anymore.
Hauling is hired out, with the cost of permits its cheaper to hire out hauls for machines than it is to have our own lowboys
