  2. Re: Need Advice; I think my customer is running out of money

    As long as you're renegotiating, change your payment schedule to progress payments for the percentage of work completed instead of for meeting milestones. Then you can bill every week or two weeks...

    Re: Setting up Utilities for New Construction

    Re: Power panel

    Am I missing something? Here (CA) the fire fighters trip the main breaker at the meter outside. They'd never go looking for an interior sub-panel.

    Re: LED bulbs

    I agree that the technology is there. I am replacing incandescent and halogen lamps in my home and recommend them to customers. You just have to know what you're buying.

    Re: Schluter vs. Redguard - thinset?

    The manufacturers recommendations for their products are always best. However, I use latex modified thinset with Schluter with good results.
