Why a good reputation is essential for contractors
A construction company’s reputation is important. Contractors often rely on a good reputation to find their next projects. Indeed a poor reputation may preclude a construction company getting a project. If a construction company doesn’t have a good reputation they won’t be invited to price projects. Even when they do have the opportunity to price a project the client might disregard the company’s price, even when it’s the lowest, rather paying more to employ a contractor without a tarnished reputation.
A good reputation is essential to procuring additional work.

What makes a good reputation?
Contractors can easily undo a good reputation
A good reputation does not come easily and can take contractors time to build. But good reputations are easily ruined by one poor project or one bad employee. It's essential that the contractor's team understand how important a good reputation is.
A successful project with a happy client is an advertisement that will often reap more benefits for a construction company than money spent on advertising. A bad project and a poor reputation can quickly undo all your advertising.
