Your cheating heart — how to build better relationships with your suppliers
Professional Remodeler
Mike Damora writes: A few weeks ago I was scrolling through email and decided to open an invoice. It was a typical supply house invoice for materials on a recent roofing job. I read it through and noticed something fishy. We had an agreed price of $72 per square on Tamko shingles, but the invoice listed a charge of $28 per bundle.
