Things are still doing OK with new jobs. I may be at 17 now and got a call to do an estimate for a new 14,000 square foot home. Should be interesting.

Let's see some pictures! Are you taking pictures with your phone or actual camera?

In about two weeks or less I will head out with my camera ans tripod to take legit pictures. Look at the pictures on my website www.plantscapesolutions.net and it shows you the proper amount of light. Do not take picture when all traces of light are gone. You really only have about a 45 minute span at best each evening to take good pictures. I can usually only take pictures of two homes per night. Sometimes I just stay at one home for 30 minutes and take a bunch of pictures and see which on looks the best.

Flashing

Installing flashing on a peak about 40' off the ground at Life Austin Church. The whole facade of the building had flashing making for a super easy Lite-Netics installation except for this peak.

The last time I did a flashing project I double stacked the flashing because it didn't have enough material to create a strong enough magnetic pull. This is just a single layer and I have my fingers crossed there will be no domino effect failure. Next year I will probably add another strip of metal under the flashing.

I doubt I will pick up any more jobs this year. At this point I have picked up 22 new jobs versus last years 25. This years average job is about double what it was last year so I have no complaints.

I also increased the installation price for my existing customers base by about $5,000 in an effort to get prices where they needed to be. This caused very few issues and went over very smoothly.

The average home I did this season was in the 1.5 million range which is exactly where I want to be.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who cusses the domino failure. Many hours wasted reinstalling the fall. I noticed icicles are the most common.
