    Don't ya hate it when.......

    Do your best to keep the story to the "for Dummies" size.. I'll start. Dont ya hate it when your team finishes up a 70 hour install and the clients client shows up at their new building for the first time and blows a gasket because the film installed is 'NOT WHAT WAS APPROVED". Turns out many samples of various whites were sent out and each one had the film removed by *someone * so the client ended up looking at and approving A LINER!!! Gee wonder why that didn't match!! Just keep repeating " I don't pickem....I just stickem" when something seems odd. Eventually you will get to do a huge removal and replacement!!! :money

    Anyone using Tintwiz?

    I just noticed the Tintwiz ad here on TD. https://tintwiz.com/ Is anyone making use of it ? What are your thoughts ? With the demise of Tintventory I'm wondering if it also helps track your stock. I did not see any Inventory related tasks in their site.

    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?
