    I would make it a short introduction to your company. You can list your experiance in basic terms.

    Keep it short and sweet with double spaced lines.

    What type of commecial are you going after? Fast food, Office buildings, warehouses? Retail Big Box?

    Are you sending out a BID or are you introducing yourselves? Schools often send out RFP's or publish them in the news paper. Churches often are looking for very cheap or free.

    What makes you qualified? Why are you different? You need a couple of sentences about your company.
