Re: Rush work charges (not a structural issue)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To me it's an issue of the client.  Does he have
the potential for more work, or is it a one time
job?  If it's a one timer, stranded tourist rates
might apply.  If it's someone your interested
in working with, be reasonable.

Dan Goodrich, P.E.
