I don’t know if this is what everyone else experiences when renovating, but I’m finding it unbelievably frustrating to get quotes on prices for doors, windows, etc. For instance, I’ve been looking at Simpson Doors and have twice filled out their quote request form, which is supposed to send it off to various local dealers, and have not yet received a response from the 5 or so dealers I requested quotes from. I’ve even emailed Simpson customer service and haven’t received a response. I don’t feel like verbally discussing the specs over the phone with each and every dealer – not only does this open up room for error in transcribing what I want, it’s a tremendous waste of time.
Sometimes I just feel like throwing in the towel and forgetting about this whole renovation.
