Giving a tip is a universal way of showing your gratitude for a job well done. However, there are times where it isn’t appropriate to do so. In this post, your trusted expert on window and roof replacement, Hunterdon Roofing, Siding and Window Company, shares if it’s appropriate to tip your window replacement contractor.
Rule of Thumb
The rule of thumb when it comes to giving tips to your window contractor is that there is no solid, hard-and-fast rule to it. Your contractor will appreciate it if you decide to give them a tip, and there’s no fixed amount that you should tip as well. Although, there is a consensus that it’s a good idea to tip around 20% of your entire project cost, alongside the work quality and the difficulty.
However, you should be careful before tipping your window contractor because some companies refuse to accept tips. Forcing them to receive it could only mean more trouble for them. You should ask the project manager beforehand about their policies regarding tipping. If they allow it, by all means, show your gratitude to your contractor after the job is finished. Otherwise, there are other ways to show your appreciation.
Alternatives to Tipping
Tipping isn’t the only way to show your appreciation to your contractor. Simply providing them snacks and refreshments during the job goes a long way to keep them performing well while on the job. You can also give them meal coupons for them to enjoy after the job. Most of all, you can give them a good review on their website and break down how well they tackled the project for you.
