Building Downturn effecting the deck coating manufacturer’s and contractors

Having spoken with a fair number of companies, both manufacturer and installers, they are all saying here in California that business is slow. One manufacturer told me confidentially that the manufacturing line may be halted until materials already in inventory are sold..another told me that they aren’t seeing any new construction to speak of and that their business has dropped by 40% since last year.

A contractor told me that they were dead down in San Diego county…

Locally, I’m seeing some low bids from my competitors who due to their staying local nature, have to get work here. Fortunately I travel all over and my core business hasn’t slowed down on rehab and maintenance work.

I am always grateful to my many repeat customers who remember me…you help keep us going and in turn, we take care of you.
