Business Math for Contractors
While contractors may know how to figure the slope of a drain line, height of gables or lengths of rafters, they sometimes get into trouble because they don’t know the math for the business side. In this seminar, we will cover percentages, profit, markup gross margin as well as some construction related elements that are important to calculating quantities for estimating either your costs or the price that you will quote to a client. We will discuss some of the common mistakes contractors make, and give you a list of rules to follow that you can keep on your phone to help you stay out of trouble so that you don’t do a great job, but at no profit! Bring your calculators for maximum benefit.
