why don't contractors call back?
I need a new roof and called 2 contractors and set up appointments for estimates. First one came and said he would send me an estimate that evening with a follow up phone call next day. It has been 4 days and no email, no phone call. Second guy comes and gives me a written estimate on the spot. I want at least 2 or 3 estimates before I hire the contractor but 3 other companies never called me back to set an appointment. I have one appointment pending but am not sure at this point if they will show up.
Does anyone have any insight as to why people don't want the business? I live in a fairly nice neighborhood and the job is a normal tear down and full re-roof on a one story (3500sf). I don't want to hound them and figure if they want the business they should call back. Am I wrong? What am I missing here? Thanks.
