No. Accounts must be settled on the day of completion. If you will not be on site to pay us when the work ends, then you need to make arrangements in advance to get us paid. One way to do this is to leave the final payment with a nearby neighbor who will be home when we are wrapping up. If, for any reason at all, such as a personal crisis (see below) you cannot settle up with us within 3 days of job completion, there is a $50 late fee plus $10 per day in carrying costs that must be paid in addition to the cost of the work itself, of course.
If you experience a life crisis during the course of work, such as for example, job loss, or divorce, which may make it a hardship for you to pay us on time as agreed to, then tell us immediately! We are reasonable folks, and will try to work with you, to the extent that we can, to come up with a payment schedule that, say, stretches over 2 to 4 weeks. Do NOT wait until Thursday afternoon or until Friday, which is pay day for our workers, to tell us that there is a problem with getting us paid if the work is being completed on Thursday or Friday.
The same holds true if you are going on vacation on a Thursday or a Friday, or are leaving town on a business trip, or must attend a family event in a neighboring town. All of these are actual situations we have experienced, as well as dozens more besides, when it comes to not paying us on time. You must understand that we have an obligation to pay the following on time, every time: our workers, our taxes, our suppliers, rental companies when their tools are needed, banking fees, the gas station, etc., etc., etc. Therefore, you cannot delay paying us because we cannot delay paying the workers, the taxes, the gas station, the bank, etc.
