    Geese, seems like no one wants to spend money this year. I have been giving out estimates on decent size install jobs, and everyone seems wishy washy on them. When I am there for the estimate they are all fungi, but after figuring out costs people seem to want to just ponder on the idea. I don't believe it to be a pricing issue, because I am VERY competitive for the work that we perform. Starting to think this may be a funny year. I have my steady customers that always spend and highly recommend us, but the new ones are funny. How's things in your neck of the woods? :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I kind of feel the same way paponte. I have given a number of estimates that felt like I was wasting my time. It's like they are just curious on the price and don't actually have the money to do the job. It gets kind of frustrating.
