"Offering a good deal to the homeowner", should not be a concern. What one thinks is a good deal is highway robbery to another.

Here is my typical breakdown

Labor $$$$$$$
Nails $$$$$$

i get my tarps, bungees, and ratchet straps at HF. That is pretty much it anymore. I have had good luck with their $15 multi tools, owning 3 and only killing one.

I use the foldable Ebco ones. Add the 2x4, and super light weight. $10 each when they are on sale at Menards. I toss them when they get worn out.
