I e-mailed three different contractors on the weekend about some drywall repairs and only one responded. This contractor is going to try to come over tomorrow to look at the wall and give me a quote.

Not sure why the other two didn’t respond. Maybe they’re too busy. Maybe they saw my pics and thought the job was too small for them to be worth it (that’s fair). Maybe they don’t treat e-mail as a serious method of communication (one of the contractors had a web site in their Google profile but it was down).

Whatever it is, it seems like I’m gonna just get a single quote so far if I don’t expand my list of potential contractors. That’s not really smart shopping, so I’m gonna keep looking, just so I can have at least two quotes to compare.
