Interesting thought

Postby Gary Puckett » Sun, Dec 27 2009, 9:25AM

Was on Woodweb, talking about material mark up, and the subject of adding a $$% for remakes came up.
I have never done this, but it looks like some companys add a % to the bid to cover their mistakes.

I was just wondering how many of you do this if any, and those that do how do you arrive at a % to charge?
