I have a broken water line. I run to my phone book, and it seem like they only list companies who do not know how to answer phones, or have no phone manners. It's flooding all over, and I cant' find anyone that not overpriced, or can come out right away. I found that at clicksmart.com, you can find Seattle Contractors plus contractors from almost all major cities in the US.
They're certified, meaning they're properly certified by the state they're located and have good standing with Better Business Bureau. That's more than my phone book can assure me. If you're thinking of having a little or even major job done in your home, check with clicksmart first. It's the intelligent way to do it.
