What is with all these lazy contractors? Is business booming so much that they don't need to feed their families? We have had 4 contractors supposedly want to do the work, but then they take their sweet time getting back in touch. If you tell us you will call in 2 days--we expect a call in 2 days, even if to say you need another day or 2 to get your paperwork or whatever together. Blowing us off is the #1 way to not do business with us period! Cordova contruction blew us off for 2 weeks, then called with a bid!! It's not just the contractors though, we've noticed there is a v-e-r-y s-l-o-w moving pace here in quite a few business'. Love's truckstop off of the Medicine Park exit and the gas station going into Wichita Mtn Estates both have a few employees that will ring you up when they are done with their conversation or reading their paper! We don't understand this behavior, and the owners or workers would not stay employed by anyone in another town with this lacsidasical attitude.

Does anyone know of a contractor who can be depended on to actually do quality work? We hired Chase Morgan and David Buffet before and got one hell of a mess!

Amen - We had numerous projects done in our house and all of them were a nightmare. I have not encountered one contractor who still takes pride in a job well done. Most of them don't have a clue about what they are doing. I had the same experience - I took leave to stay home for the contractor and either they don't bother showing up or they show up after lunch to tell you "It's Friday and I don't want to work today anyhow" This area is pathetic. I have never seen so many losers in one place. I can't wait to get out of here. Unless you can do the job yourself you are screwed! Most disturbing of all - when you complain to a supervisor or owner of the company - they don't care either! They just want your money. I have lived all over the world this is the most pathetic place I have ever experienced.

I use Semper Fi Construction and have had zero problems. The owner, Martin (don't remember his last name) was 15 minutes early for my estimate (which was free) and was always there when he said he would be. I had all the sheetrock replaced in my garage ceiling because it fell in. He cleaned the mess, repaired it, and it was left clean. He and one of his employees did all of the work. Thought it was nice seeing the big boss do a repair like that. He seems to be a good, trustworthy guy too.

Not sure why it's showing Anadarko. I live in Lawton. Weird.
