Wouldn’t it be great to have the benefit of hindsight after completing a difficult job that took way more time and effort than you had anticipated?  Join us for “7 Signs of a Difficult House” where we will talk about clues you can look for which may indicate a tricky mitigation.  If you know it’s a tricky job from your walk-through you can price it accordingly, set the customers expectations and have a “plan B” worked out in advance which is much better than losing money, undershooting customer expectations and having unexpected scope creep.  This should be a fun and interactive discussion so please share your “clues” in the after discussion!
