WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE ON THE FENCE ABOUT JOINING BUILDERTREND, ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW?
“The COVID-19 and what’s going on right now, guys, if there’s not a better example of why a program like yours is needed, I don’t know how to find one. And, you know, one thing I say around here is, if it didn’t happen in Buildertrend, it didn’t happen at Decksouth.”
“Buildertrend is an insurance policy at some level, it’s a method to the madness, if you will, at another level. For me, Buildertrend is a bit of empowerment, too, being able to go to one place and know what’s going on.”
