Yes - I agree with that. I don't think I ever said CR's were the only thing you considered - just that you should consider them.

Yes - they should tell you without you asking ... :)

I don't understand. You have a separate deal with the door people ?
Didn't the builder get involved in this - or didn't they have your plans ?

I would have thought many smaller builders might consider this. Often it can be a word of mouth thing too. But check the white pages/papers etc.
