DiY?

Price, Quality, or Service. You can only have 2.

There are only 3 things that a business is able to offer with their products.  These 3 things are Price, Quality, or Service.  The unfortunate side of things is that you are only able to have 2 out of the 3.  This is where some decision making comes in on your part.  Often times we are able to choose quite easily.  Take Costco as an example,  They are able to offer Quality Products at a good price but if you need a sales person out on the floor with all the answers about the product you are looking to purchase… Read the Full Post »

Since we were living in our home during the remodel, they maintained a clean area every night making it as non-invasive as possible. All of the work was beautifully done and visitors to our home are so impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. The end results far exceeded our expectations.” ~ Terry and Donna Scott

From the beginning through completion, working with Aaron and Charlie Marvin with ACT Builders, was a wonderful experience. We were impressed by their desire to carefully plan for and accommodate our special needs in the remodel. They were open to our suggestions and were good at offering other options, as well.” ~ Terry and Donna Scott
