Local Contractor or Re-badged Contractor

Are you working with a local company? Remember the local contractor lives, hires, works and spends money right here in the area. Whether it is here in Springfield MO or in Amarillo TX your local cosmetic cleaner is where to look first. He most likely is just a small business man or woman looking to do a good job at a fair price. They are looking to get their name out to the public on a limited budget just like most small business, I know Cleaned by Pete is.
Can Google put a pin in the company your looking at? See if they're local. Franchises are moving in and offer the local entrepreneur a complete turnkey business at least they're local but what about experience in the field. Checking out and talking to a local contractor is what you need to do it is your house you are in controlling check us out.  

House washing is a business like any thing else and money is to be made, as with any other business we can stay local keep money here and supporting our area and neighbors. The other choice is to call that re-badged company on the internet, you know the ones that have the newest look on the web that draws in the public. They say we are local and post pictures of international airports being cleaned or a picture of them cleaning a big hotel in LasVegas. They show a home office of a big industrial plaza with all new trucks and a name "photo shopped" on the building. They have the best internet tools to purchase the top spot on the search engines.

You send information over the computer about your home and they can tell you how much it will cost, with out even looking at it. Cleaned by Pete has done bids over the phone before. I don't like too I would rather meet you face to face or at least look at what needs to be cleaned. Where are these companies based out of? Where does your money go? Who comes in and does the job? Why does the contractor not use their own name if their local? Most small business can not afford to place these highly visible adds on the web who puts them up? How come there is a list of cities served that have the same name?  Are they local? Most of these companies will say several times in the add: "not a franchise", "we are a local service providing agent", or "we have a locations in your town".  Knowing your local pressure / power washing company may not seem important now what happens when this #1 ranked .net company needs to be contacted?
