If you’re like many home builders and remodelers, keeping your clients happy can feel like an exhaustive and — sometimes — impossible task. 

And to be fair, sometimes it is. 

However, in the majority of your projects, your clients' happiness is easily achievable and almost entirely within your control. Better yet, it doesn’t require you to jump through hoops to achieve it. Heck, it doesn’t even mean that everything needs to go right on the project. 

Do this, you need two things:

  1. The source of client unhappiness
  2. A plan to address it

The Source of Client Unhappiness

Based on a survey we conducted, we learned that: 

80% of homeowners say that communication with their contractor is critical to the success of their project

However, only 20% of those homeowners stated that their contractor was an above average communicator

Mostly importantly though, 72% of their disputes were directly related to poor communication

It’s crystal clear that the key to making your clients happy is one simple thing: better/more communication. 

But WTH does that mean, right? 

I mean, do they want you to talk louder, enunciate better, chat about their kids?
