Just guessing you are a Limey,
or an Aussie, so I'll let one of
your own beat you about the head
and shoulders this time.

Re: How Much Do I Charge To Fix


Are the openings wood or masonry? Are you changing any widths? Is there a buck in place?

You might have to furr down but I need to know these answers first.

Re: How Much Do I Charge To Fix


Seems like you have 17 openings to do.
I would try this;
Round up 17 buddies and tell them that the first one to complete their opening wins $100.
Tell them the last to finish has to pay the winner the $100.
Charge the HO $100

You make an easy hun

This stuff is so much fun

Re: How Much Do I Charge To Fix


I'll help

When you say French Door, is it from France or Canada. If its from France then that Madder (expletive deleted) door must be set after lunch.
If its from Canada then the Mudder (expletive deleted) door should be installed first thing in the morning, but don't install the hardware until the following week.
Now depending on the exchange rate we will have to add or subtract depending on what the multiplier is.
All "fitted" windows are priced by United Inches. I would guess your area is about $3.11 PU. That's pronounced PU. Since you are PU you must consider whether an elliptical brace is mandatory in your area.
So here's some homework for you Mr. PU.
Call the building inspector and tell him you are a PU installer and that you need the PU ratings. Get those and come back.
