I look at it as money is money... on to my next question i have an older couple that wants their deck power washed and coated with rustoleum restore. have any of you used this product on anything?from the looks of it it would be perfect on trailer flooring

I plant the occasional tree or shrub, deliver wood but I could see someone eventually asking for other work too so why not.

My pops is a lifelong concrete flatworker and I grew up around it so if someone wants a slab or patio, sidewalk, something like that done...we'll do it. I don't see why you should limit yourself to "I just do this and this" if you know how to do other things

I do quite a bit of it especially through the winter. As I grow I've been doing less and more picky about what I do take on but we do several drives decks patios etc through the year.

I do pest & termite service, including bees. I'm also a structural & mechanical inspector, so I can do prepurchase inspections or phase inspections on new construction. Being a real estate broker, I'll help some clients find new homes and list one here and there. And as a licensed private investigator, I get some work here and there filing lawsuits and documents at the courthouse and looking up stuff that's not online.

Restore is horrible because each can seems to be mixed different one has very little sand the next has too much. The little sample at the store is nice since ifs only 6inch by 6 inch try doing a whole deck and keeping it the same texture if its sunny in the morning and cloudy in the afternoon it dries different too once your all done wasting money and time it looks like puke ....

I do handyman stuff, mow grass, repair vehicles, lawn equipment, and farm equipment. Help my dad on the farm quite a bit mostly shop work like welding and repairing the worn out stuff he owns. I only have a couple yards I do right now, I'd probably be better off to focus on one thing but I like the variety.
