That's material in. I have my own formula for estimating reno jobs. I use a point method and then apply a multiplier for degree of difficulty. If there's a service change, panel swap or sub, I pad those pretty good. People seem to think there's some kind of magic to that kind of work.

Oh yeah, I definitely agree. That's why I like to focus on service upgrades, you can charge a premium for them and make considerably more than usual while the customer thinks they are getting a good deal.

The same with portable generator connections. They are very easy, but the customer will pay $800+ because the end result is something that they love and are often amazed by.

I think generators would be a cool niche but there's no demand here. I have done one in six years of reno work.

I wanna do one! Hack makes gens and panels sound easy and lucrative.
