Has anyone used thebluebook.com before? How are the leads from this website?

There was a lead that ask for me to place a bid. It says that it is a LEED Project. Not sure what that means. Tried searching but failed to find the meaning.

Thanks

DON'T USE THE BLUE BOOK!!!

We did: http://www.thebluebook.com/wsnsa.dll/WService=wsbrk1/viewnam.htm?cname=wolverine%20coatings&bkid=29&chsm=koaavkljcbabpjbl

(after clicking on the link above... click on our 2 little ads)

We NEVER got what we were promised. We complained after the book was published the first year. We were PROMISED that we would get 4 ads instead of 2. THEN, the second year, they were supposed to check with us to update the ads but didn't! They published the ads the second year STILL with the wrong address!!!

So, we called and complained and told them we were not going to pay the full bill. The rep FINALLY came out and promised us that if we went ahead and paid the bill that he would make SURE we got taken care of.

I decided to go ahead and pay it since it was only $1100 and if they didn't keep their word AGAIN that we'd be done with them!

We never heard from them again!

The Blue Book of Building and Contstruction has been a COMPLETE waste of money for us!

I feel like we got the old 'bait and switch'...

I HATE dishonest people/companies! We're done with them!

The 'free listing' can't hurt...
