When you book a decorative concrete job, always get 50% of the quoted price up front. That way, it evenly splits the risk between the customer and you. Your customer bears the risk at the beginning and you bear the risk at the end. You should be able to recover all or most of your costs with a return.Update on my concrete job. Custy texted me at 8pm said her husband said it was to much money and they decided to not do it. The job is scheduled for Tomorrow morning and I already purchased the sealer, stain and , stripper. $400 worth of chemicals. I hope the supplier takes back the product.
2k job and they cancel the night before by text message. WTF. I booked a day and a half for this job. No respect for contractors time.
