I tell em how I do it and call me back if it dont work.
When I show up, I push the plunger 1,2,3 times and I`m done. They never ***** about paying me $70.00 to do it because I tried to help em save money before I showed up. Seem`s to make em happy knowing that I tried to save em a buck or 2 before I charged em
They will eventually call me for the hard stuff, along with their extended family, friends, and co-workers.
Heck, I even gained a few great General Contractors this way.
The way I look at it is: 5-10 minutes of my time = to thousands in profits.

I've always enjoyed helping the ones who want to try it on their own. As a matter of fact I had a radio show named "Home Improvement" before Tim Allen was even around. People would call to ask questions regarding repairs and I did my best to talk them through it. Many of them called me later to do the tougher project they did not want to handle on their own. The show got me a lot more work than it ever lost me.
