Good Morning Fellow WCR’s,
This is my first ever post, I'be been reading this forum for months now. And the reason why I haven't posted yet was because I usually find the answer without asking the question. Which is amazing! There is so much FREE information here! It has helped me so much. I would have been lost without this forum. And not that I didn't find the answer to my following question, I just wanted to share that I FINALLY have a real resi job. I'm like a little boy with a new G.I. Joe! Ok onto the question, I just recently started my business, it's in the extremely part-time phase. I still have my full-time job. And today after work I'm going to price out my first PAID residential job, if I get it, I've looked at the competition and one says windows, frames,screens $5 each, then right under that it says same thing for $4 each. They're just under cutting to get the jobs. I know I'm not going to be able to survive charging that much. I plan on charging $7-$8 per window including all the extras (ie. screens, frames, sills) Do I need to just be firm, and know that my work is worth that much and see what happens? And let the ones go that say it's to much and move on to someone that can afford quality? Keep pushing, and have the Never GIVE UP type attitude.
Thanks for all the help,
