    How much (percent) should you allow for the "fudge factor"?
  2. Would depend highly on the job.


    EG; I gave a bid for full maint. at an apt. complex I did not want with a 25% add on price.

    Another one I came $5,000 to high because of my fudge factor.

    I'm not real good at remembering to add this to my bid. I need to put a sign above the computer to remember to add it in.

    The fudge factor, huh? The best way is to learn not to fudge.
  4. Factor for unforseen error is a must.
