Mistakes are bound to happen from time to time. There are some howlers for sure. Like someone not installing a drain correctly in an upstairs bathroom.  Free shower downstairs. 

And I don’t think they can ever be avoided 100%. 

But most owners don’t understand the financial implications of mistakes that require rework to be done. 

The financial mistakes are huge and they can be calculated.  But there are a bunch of other down stream issues that result that are harder to figure out. 

If owners understood the real cost they would spend more time getting their teams working well and focusing on get it done right the first time.


  • An understanding of all the costs that you'll face from doing callbacks.
  • How to motivate your staff to get the job done right the first time of asking.
  • How to specialize your workload to make your business more efficient and profitable.
  • An understanding that taking more time to do the same job is actually more profitable.
