how do you get paid for commercial jobs when your a small company? ask for money every week or all the money before the job is done? paying help would be hard to run a big job without getting paid. If I run 3 guys for 3 weeks and buy all material it would drain me waiting to get paid when the job is complete. I do residential smaller jobs so waiting for a check at the end of 1 or 2 weeks is no problem. I've never been stiffed because I do good work, but commercial is a whole different beast. I've done small commercial jobs. taking that next step to get bigger is going to be hard. any suggestions?
