Residential client is asking for remodel to be done using metric measurements and materials. Any advice?

Did they tell you why they want everthing done in Metric? Do they already have plans with metric measurements? Also, what kind of "metric materials" do they want?

Watch how you estimate this thing, Its going to take you more time to do the work.

Give them the quote in euros? Metric conversions are easy but any time you work with materials other than the ones you are used to things go wrong.

A wise old sales man who is very successful said to me once: "Not all customers are your customers." Some customers just aren't worth having. If you can afford it, throw this one back.
