Just wondering what some of you charge above labor, material, and mark up?? What kind of profit margin?? I have a good customer I have done work for, for years. He ask for a price and I gave him the estimated price. It looks like I may come out way to the good, but I don't want to take advantage of him. He's a real good customer and friend, best I have probably in 25 to 30 years of doing business with him. I want to make money of course and need to, but want to do it fairly. Thanks for the input...:)

A steady customer is always worthy of being happily surprised with a reduced bill.

I like that idea too. Nobody ever complained about coming in below budget
