Thanks to everyone who participated in or volunteered at the Remodelers Golf Tournament. It was a great day on the golf course. We had 108 players and proceeds will fund scholarships for students going into our industry. This tournament is a great opportunity to socialize and network with other contractors in our city.

Fall is a busy time of year for us. Kids are back to school and the holidays are right around the corner. This is also an important time to start your marketing process for next year. Often we talk about charging what you are worth. We all have customers who want the “best deal” and there are plenty of companies that can give the lowest price. But is the “best deal” right for you? We try to make sure we can warranty not only the product but the work for a long period of time. We want to exceed expectations with our products and services, and sometimes that does cost more. None of us want to be in a bidding war with a lower level product or service. We should never be taking advantage of a customer or another contractor with pricing, but we should get paid what we are worth. It is a great question to ponder, what are your services worth?

We hope you can join us for the next Remodelers Council meeting on September 6 at Concrete Craft. We also have the HBAL Autumn Social at Glacial Till Vineyard on September 12 and HBAL 101 on September 19.
