  • There's more to metal roofing than standing seam and ag panels. An experienced remodeler provides an overview of roofing with aluminum shingles.

  • Q. I'm a general contractor in a small town where there are many licensed contractors, which makes competition fierce. Some local contractors seem to think the way to do business is to give their materials away at cost and to charge $25 per hour for labor

  • Forget material markups: This method, successfully practiced for 20 years by an Iowa remodeler, assigns overhead and profit expense to billed time on the job.
