Simple observation. Scott charges $250, Steve says
HD charges $250 and that's a rip-off. That should
raise an eyebrow. My questions: why should Scott
or HD (making a good buck off an installer) be out
of line? Personally, I would consider charging
more than this and the people in my area pay with
gratitude. Does this mean I'm ripping them off?
Perhaps the "rip off" concept needs to be put
to bed here? I also don't believe that a book
telling craftsmen how much to charge for their
services has much merit either. Rules and beliefs
like this are old as the hills, and need to be
discarded just like a rotted door jamb.
