Others in the business very busy. Our rates are going up, we can pick the jobs we want...

Don't I know it.

I've gone through three contractors this last month, having to fire the first two because they tried to raise their rates after agreeing to an initial price and/or demanding a supplemental project to begin the first. Third time lucky, I guess. They did a great job at a fair price.

The second contractor who was recommended by a friend was, apparently, "such a nice guy" when work was scarce but turned into a complete a$$hole when the summer of plenty arrived. All very unpleasant.
