Should You Feed Your Home Remodeling
By: Mark J. Donovan
Frequently I get asked the question by homeowners
on whether or not they should feed a home remodeling contractor when they
are performing work on their home.
My response is always the same. As with any
employer/employee relationship it is always good for the employer to show some
occasional extra level of appreciation to his/her employees. And this frequently
does come in the form of a free lunch or dinner. However, this said, it is
unwise to become the regular “Chuck Wagon” to your home remodeling contractor.
|Besides getting expensive just in terms of
groceries it also can lead to other negatives.
Your over hospitality could actually backfire on
you. The contractor may grow to expect the regular food service and in the event
you stop or suspend service, they may question your motives. This questioning
could lead to bad feelings and a reduction in their performance as they may
think you are unsatisfied with their level or quality of work.
To conclude, it is best to maintain a healthy
employer/employee relationship with your home remodeling contractor, however it
is unwise to inadvertently try to become their friend by feeding them on a
regular basis. Show occasional appreciation if it is deserved but do not
attempt to become a contractor's meal ticket.
