Just got approved from $33 recut to $145 recut

Went to this mansion, literal mansion. 1 Acre lot and they tried to get me to recut for $33. I told them the property is the entrance to a community of mansions, which is true and they approved me for that price.

Also had to repair a roof leak for $350, cleaned gutters for $80. Removed 10CY of debris. Was just supposed to be an initial cut at first. Almost every property we have gone to has had the max allowable in debris at the property. If it's a few CY over I will take it and bill the max so I don't have to wait for bid approvals.

Don't forget to bid trimming those trees!

BTW, that looks a little small for a 'mansion'. Would barely pass as a middle class semi-custom in this area.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Nice job. Wouldn't have touched a roof leak for $350 to assume ALL the future problems with the roof... JMO. Wait till the Service Company releases to the next buyer during the disclosure that there was a roof leak and a good Home Inspector starts looking for mold or other evidence of water leakage....

Not every one is so cheap that they live in a 10x20 storage shed with a portatoilet.

lol

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I guess I should clarify, I live in an 2000sf house & that place is huge compared to mine. . .

And, Zoly, excellent job on the grass cut negotiation, that's definitely the way to do it!

Just how long did it take to do that grass cut. Total cost and time and $ 135.00 is a big deal. Hay I did not get riped off and now that is a big deal. It`s to bad that this is what it has come to. Why do all you vendors keep working so cheep, You all need to learn to say no to low rates and they will go up. If you only knew what they make off your hard labor for doing more than pushing paper you would park your truck in there office. Do the reserach and get a fair rate every time.
