awesome patch,, its supposed to disappear like that,,, that's a square patch though
Thanks brother. Doing a ton of apartments has gotten me plenty of practice.
Yes Sir,,, I always felt terrible if I couldn't find a repair in each apt...
Here is a patch from today. Quick and fast for some extra cash.
Looks good! Did you use a cookie cutter?
I did not. The hole in the carpet was there when I showed up. I'm guessing somebody had a sharp metal piece of furniture that cut a hole throw there.
Oh ok. I've never been a fan of them. I know some people love them.
great job for not using a cookie cutter ,,,, did you clean that carpet too?
how much did you charge them?
Yes I did clean the carpet. It was filthy and took forever. I think it would have cleaned a lil better if I would of mixed my prespray before the job with hot water. I forgot to do that and had to use cold water for prespray. Still came out good just took longer.
I got 35 dollars for that? Good price or not? I just started doing patching so still figuring how much I wanna charge. 35 is my minimum and does a small patch 45 for a medium patch. 50 for anything bigger. Usually door seams I charge 75. Hold on and I'll post a pic of a door seams I did.
Here is one of those doggy escape plans that I fixed
I would say a 2x2 foot patch would be considered 100 bucks so don't limit yourself
damn good patch !!!
yes good prices !!! Remember you are helping them hide an unsightly spot that they created not you....
To me repairs are free money !!!
what kind of sissors do you use to trim your patches
Yeah with my prices I basically figured up how I could make two dollars a min. If I see a patch that would take me 20 min I try to get around 40 is how I got my price. I'm new to patches but I feel like I have a knack for them and actually enjoy doing them so I'm learning the rest as I go.
I'll post a picture of mine. The longer scissors are mainly what I like to use. They are super sharp and long. Even though they are big, they don't hurt your hand either. Bought them at a pawn shop for 25 bucks.
that's what patching is,, you and even I we learn every time we make a patch
good job but I would suggest these
they will help trim the patches and seams,,, bevel the cuts to the inside so there are more fibers pointing towards the seams helps totally hide the patches
Ah I will have to pick up one. You know what I'd really like? A square iron about the size of a piece of paper. I prefer to iron in my patches instead of the loop glide. I have both, but the iron seems to do better for me. Only bad thing is irons are so small!
