    Need help with estimate

    We never quote "square foot pricing" We ALWAYS quote time and material for the install and add project related expenses. We cannot do the math for you as we do not know how slow(or fast) you install. Is access equipment rental needed? What about travel / lodging expenses....?? Are you flying, driving or walking to the site? Is a hotel stay required? You need to allow for the client to pay some part or all of this. Have you thought about what profit margin you expect? If a client sent me a list like that I'd ask for elevation drawings and floor plans and if its already built I want photos of the site conditions. Being able to reach the glass standing on the floor is one thing. If this is a curtainwall with the glass stacked it is a very different cost in time. Some sites often have furniture /store displays and other crap in front of the glass. Its not your responsibility to move it but accommodations to work with occupants need to be scheduled. Is this during regular or after hours?

    Installing frost with lettering

    @Bham Bubbling happens most often when removing premask too early or a bit too much slip in your slip slowing the bond to the glass. The wait for the film to bond to the glass better than the film to premask bond is the hardest part to learn. SOOOO glad for smart phones now!!! When I would do a one off I'd often wait 10-15 or more mins before a test tug on the premask to see how its sticking. 3M has at multiple levels of tack in their premask offerings. SCPM -3 (low) SCPM -2(medium) and SCPM 53 (high) There is also SCPM 44x also a medium tack .

    Installing frost with lettering

    Not sure what premask you are using. One of the reasons the centers "float away " or get places they do not belong can be a combo of light tack premask or simply taking to long to lock them to the glass. When they get wet they want to let go of the premask. With "itty bittys" we will often would use a higher tack premask on a large panel with partial graphic like what you are describing. If you are hesitant yes use 2 men for the install. In any case be quick with targeting and lock down the cut area first taking care at the edges of the premask . ( the step to no premask can hold slip if you don't work perpendicular to the edges) then work above the cut area with wider and wider horizontal passes with hard card with the intention of keeping any slip above the cut area from getting down to the "logo" or text. Our guys use the 6" Silver Lidco hard card for anything premasked then use any favorite 6" slip removal squeegee for the rest. I should add that it takes some experience to learn how long to wait for premask removal afterwards. Too much slip in your slip or too short a wait can result in pulling itty bittys away and losing them. This can result in learning through necessity to hand cut by tracing replica itty bittys on the liner which hopefully is still clean and you have scraps.

    Wasn't repoed but my friends mom had a yellow Chevette/Acadian . She came out after work and got in "her " car and drove a way. Then she noticed the smoke odour (different than her smokes I guess) and started looking around. NOT her car @#$@#$#@ Drove back to work parked in a waaay different spot and found her real car WHEW.. The "other" car was not there the next day so all was good!
