What ideas do you all have about estimating? Not pricing, we know to the penny what we have to charge for our company to meet minimum profits. We go on so many estimates and never here from them again. Our company spends approx. $1,000.00 per month on estimates we do not get. We make a nice apperence, have the nice vehicles, we leave nice brochures. We have come up with ballpark pricing for our patio's,fences & decks to give the customer a heads up. We do the same with our lawn treatment pricing as well. Do you guys ask for a commitment before going to the home? if so how is it set up? Do you all charge a fee?
