Thanks. We all believe in doing things the right way.(or we should)
Sometimes people don't want whats right, they want whats cheap! You know
the drill. My market happens to be the Capital region, DC. is ALL stone.
Most of my competition are service oriented firms that try to do it all.
Crystalizer allows them to make stone shine with out the use of a
knowledgable stone pro.(and lets not forget-cheap!)Well, we'll see how
this plays out. Thanks again for your input.
