I'm glad you found us and thanks for the kind words. I have a little experience doing this sort of thing so once we launch in January expect a lot more traffic!I typed in "drywall forum" on google, to find somewhere else to explore. I gotta say "forum" is not the first term I tried. Kudos to you for getting to the top of the list so quickly! It's not even an adword.
Hi savant,Hello AWB,
So, you're up here in the NE?
How's your region?
Yes, some sectors are still doing good, others (new residential developments) are slow.It's funny how up here we have such a patchwork market. Certain portions that were strong the past few years, have come to a standstill, while other areas, that we haven't had a call from in a long time, are seeing modest growth. I guess it's a benefit from living in highly-populated states.
I pumped $120.00 into my tank yesterday. ( I average 10 mpg) - Ugh.The NJ Invasion contractors seem to be seeing it too. This gas crunch is tough for locals like us, I can't imagine what it's doing to those guys who drive >150mi. every day to take some of our jobs.
$120? Here I was complaining about $45.Hi savant,
In my region, things have been pretty slow for everyone. Drywall supply houses are doing ok. There is still limited residential building, but, lots of commercial and industrial still going, along with rehabs and repairs.

We do a decent amount of insurance repair jobs. Those jobs help pay for all the driving we do, that is connected to work that we are not charging for: consultations and estimates.
Gas is going to be a killer for everyone in the industry this summer.
