got your attention hugh??? I had a question to see how you guys deal with the ones that call looking for a patio and have no idea that it could cost them $8-$10K. I don't want to say something to them and push them away when i possibly might get "something" out of them, but when i receive the call, i know that i am going to go out, take a look at their yard, build a quote, then comense to pick them up off the floor. Most of the time i ask them if they have a budget in mind for the project and show them some pictures of other patios and tell them what they cost figuring if they are penny shy, they will let me know right then and there. This process works most of the time, i just have to be extra causios that i don't insult or scare off someone that would spend money with me on a lesser project. Does anyone have any tried and true tactics?
