Three Rules to Live By

Know your cost of doing business

Keep accurate records of your estimates

Price your work so it sells, and sells at a profit


How to Hire a Contractor

  • Know the actual cost of work before contacting prospective contractors
  • Define the scope of work clearly – what is included and what is not
  • Request quotes from at least three qualified local contractors
