What is the difference between a $1,200 roof cleaning job and three $400 roof cleaning jobs?

yeah i would say setting up and breaking down every time staying at one job and getting the same amount of money would be better.

One $1200 job your making Money, Three $400 jobs your losing your shirt. Time is money.

I just did a 1300.00 big azz tile roof cleaning.
I caught myself saying "Chit, we could have done 4 - 400 dollar jobs, in the time it took to do this"

Art is correct, TIME is money !

     I forgot to say that the veterans weren't allowed to answer yet! Good stuff though. Everyone is right so far. And the little intangibles add up quick. I've made more money on one $1200 than I have on 3 $400 jobs, and vice versa. Sometimes the larger jobs seem like "the big fish", but all that glitters is not gold. I've also lost my rear end on some of those $1200 jobs.

     Keep it coming though. There are a few more things that can be mentioned in this thread.....

That's correct. Unless you know the fixed and variable costs involved in both bids, the only thing you can say is the difference is 800 dollars.

At first, I was thinking that one $1200 job would be better than even 3 $500 jobs because of drive time, set up, tear down, amount of time, etc.  Even though it's $300 less, the $1200 job would be less labor.  Thinking about it more, though, led me to marketing potential.  3 jobs in different areas allows for greater visibility.  You have 2 more customers talking to neighbors about the great job you did.  You have 2 more houses being seen by passersbys.  You have 2 more opportunities for yard signs.  Nevermind, I'll just take all of the jobs!!

Personally, I like residential.
I have one big commercial job that dam near broke us!
They take a LONG time to pay sometimes.

To me, it is like the NFL Draft.
You can take a top 3 pick, OR ya can trade down in the draft for more draft picks ?
IF one of the top 3 picks work out, cool biggrin
But if they don't, you are screwed yawn
Tom Brady was a 5th round draft pick ...
