As usual Cville contractors fail to want my money

Time for a new roof. I call 3 contractors who have put roofs on for 3 friends within 1/2 mile of me.

First contractor: came out timely, high verbal estimate; never sent the written quote as requested. Fail.

Second contractor: slow to return calls; moved the meetup to view the job several times; no show today. Fail.

Third contractor: timely response. Sent a ramshackled guy in a ramshackled minivan. Pretty unprofessional appearance/communication, but did send the written quote and called to follow up.

So I don't have any quotes to compare and probably going to pick the company that sent the scary guy who probably was the best representative compared to the rest of their crew.
