    I like the residentials over the commercials to. I like the look on the face of the homeowner after a job well done. Thats hard to find in the commercial arena. Thanks again for the insight!

    We offer something that will help you.

    We offer a printed manual titled "Bidding & Contracts Your key to success" as well as a CD Titled "Know why you charge what you charge" that will walk you through the process of calculating your company's break-even cost per hour based on your overhead, expenses and use-rates. I realize you are a new company, but there is a simple methodology to calculate those cost with no previous history of expenses or use-rates.
