Tipping is generally a way of showing your appreciation for a job well done. However, there are some situations where it isn’t appropriate to do so. In this post, one of the trusted window installation contractors, Abby Windows & Exteriors, shares if you should give your window replacement contractor tips.
The rule of thumb when it comes to tipping your window replacement contractors is that there’s no rule to it. Tipping your contractor is greatly appreciated, but isn’t mandatory. Also, if you decide to tip your contractor, there’s no fixed amount that you should give. While some homeowners say it’s a good idea to tip around 20% of your entire project’s cost, depending on the quality of the work, or its difficulty, there is no fixed amount that you should give to your contractor.
It’s also worth noting that some window replacement companies forbid tipping their employees. If you insist on giving them a tip, you might get them in more trouble instead. To stay on the safe side, ask the project manager if it’s alright to leave a tip for the contractors once the project is done and dusted up.
Other Ways to Give Thanks
Tipping is a universal way to show your gratitude for a job well done. But if you can’t tip your contractors, you can show your thanks to them by giving them snacks or refreshments during the job, or even giving them gift cards or food coupons once the job is done. Most of all, you can even leave them a good, comprehensive review on their website to share your great experience with them.
