60 Second Elevator Script

We design changes, build additions and remodel residences for homeowners

Who have older homes needing repair, updating or more space, and who are concerned about the safety of their family, the functionality of their living space, and the resale value of their home,

And are looking to make major changes that will look great, last a long time, have no hidden charges or fees, and are built by certified, uniformed remodeling specialists.

You see, most people who remodel don't realize that the contractor can make or break the project. Did you know that 75% of ALL remodeling contractors are financially unstable - and if they collect all the money you owe them - but fail to pay ANY of their sub-contractors - that sub-contractor can attach a lien to your property - and prevent you from selling it until they receive full payment.

In fact, most people looking to remodel aren't quite sure exactly what it is they want their finished project to look like. They've looked through magazines and gone through some model homes, and basically have a picture in the minds; but how do you convey that vision to the contractor. Remodeling is a major expense - you obviously want it done properly.

Are you also aware that most manufacturers of building materials require that contractors become "certified" in the installation of their products. Unfortunately, even though the remodeling contractor receives this certification, their employees don't. And yet, they're the ones installing these products in your home, which explains why the remodeling industry has the second worst reputation in the country - with auto repair claiming the top spot.

You'll even discover contractors who ask you to put cash up front to get the project started. There are only 2 times you should ever be asked to do this - for special order materials that aren't returnable, or if you have poor credit and are paying for the job yourself. It's no wonder the industry has such a dubious reputation.

At ABC Remodeling, we want to help our clients avoid the nightmares. We realize the difficulty in finding the "right" look for your remodeling project. The changes you want to make may not be compatible with your homes layout and design. That's why we have a software program that allows us to program in your exact home specifications, along with the proposed changes you want to make, and produce a representation of the finished project. This way, you know before you start if the project will produce the desired results. We even designed our website so you can select floor plans, redesigns, room layouts, materials and so on - right online in the comfort of your living room.

Not only do we address the situations I just mentioned; but we felt the industry standards were so lax and unregulated, that we created a Code Of Ethics And Competency Standard that we strictly adhere to. We are the ONLY remodeling contractor in the state that provides this for its customers - and it covers 19 major areas of concern for people remodeling their homes.

In fact, to help homeowners like you make the best decision possible, we offer a FREE Report detailing these standards. It's called the 2004 Code Of Ethics And Competency Checklist

Which contains all the areas you'll need to ask any remodeling company to provide you proof of their reputation, workmanship, stability, and customer service. This will insure that you're getting the best remodeling job possible for your money. We also have over 1,100 references and a 13-minute quality assurance video that explains these standards in depth and provides visual verification that we meet each and every standard in full. In fact, upon request, we will provide you with our workers qualifications and certification scores. We don't want you worrying about the safety of your family or your possessions in the presence of our workers. This helps explain why we are the only ones in our industry that offer a 10 year warranty that covers both materials and workmanship - a warranty that's fully transferable should you ever sell your home. This is unmatched by any other remodeling contractor in the industry. This will virtually remove any concerns you may have regarding the value you get for your money.

I will be in your area later this week, would you like me to stop by, outline your project and leave you a written estimate along with the Free Code Of Ethics Checklist?
