I ask clients for 50-70% upfront on large jobs. Small jobs are payment on completion, some jobs are inlcuded in monthly maintenance contracts.

I have also asked for nothing down, but several payments upon completion of each item on very large jobs.

Every job over $1,000 per year is under contract.

I always get a 50% down payment on a project and the other 50% due either upon completion of the project or the end of the month.
