Generally I try to charge on a "per day" basis. If there are two men on a job for one day, then that is considered "2 man days" then material is figured out and added in. I never charge for estimates and I always want my clients happy so that they will refer me to a friend.
I have taken many classes and have certification in the following: Aerial Work Platform Operator Training Lead Awareness Training Asbestos worker Certification Scaffold Competent Person Certification Osha10 Safety Certification OSHA 30 Supervisor Safety Certification California/OSHA Stairs and Ladder Safety Certification
I started plastering when I was fresh out of high school and the first job I worked on was for the ambassador of Switzerland in a high rise condo on East Lake Shore Drive. It was the largest condo I ever saw, at that point in my life and I loved going to work and learning something new every day.
