It would be nice to have a Buddy Button. How it works, I do mostly Crown Moldings and Base boards but do to health and aging reason I dont like to paint any more. The buddy button could hook the home owner up with a painter in the area to bid with me to get the job done on time with little hassle. another example I do a lot of Base and shoe molding. I would love to buddy with someone that does flooring but maybe doesnt have the time to do the base and shoe. We bid as seperate companies but trying to complete the job together. I stop shopping with the intent to making it easy to find the specialty trades that will do the best job.
Instead of loosing Base boards bids to a painter. Who may be good at painting but is not a Finish Carpenter.
This is a really great idea, @FinishCarpenter! Thank you for sharing it!
In the interim, I hope you'll use this Community to find pros in other industries whom you can maybe refer and who can maybe refer you. Making these sorts of connections and relationships is defintiely something we want to encourage and support!
I wish we had the ability to add an out of area surcharge, if we could do that then we would go ahead to turn on instant match.
