If I'm right for PA, then I may be a little high in NE Louisiana. Maybe I'll hear from some guys down south.

Thanks

I think if it covered your expenses and gives you a % of profit you are shooting for, than its great.

If you want to try and maximize your profit potential on such jobs, you can add a premium % to the jobs and give the customer a price on site. See how they react. If they go with it, great for you. If they are kinda luke warm to it, you can always offer to drop the price a bit on the spot to get them to sign up right away.

You did a great job with everything.
