    50+ years daily hands on work .. earned a PhD in " on thejob " experience   : ) 

    Attended many college level evening and correspondence classes to supplement my field experience .. possess PA CDL,  Penn State Horticultural degree , union card ( when needed on government work - earned in 1969) , graduate Chicago Institute of Technology in 1968  ( in materials science , blueprint reading , surveying , construction formulaes and mathmatics , etc )  I'm a lifelong learner , posess two construction patents , enjoy life and what I do  !   I've lectured nationally ( for fun and experience ) on construction innovations ..but mostly I'm just a very good andknowledgable  construction worked who enjoys using his mind and body ~    Call me once you'll see ! 

    umm, this really depends on crew size needed ( one man or six ? )    and the amount of equipment ( if any ) needing assigned to the job ..

    for $ 1 per hour building houses in the summer of 1965 after graduating with honors from Central Catholic High School that year ..  I thought I'd do it to get a nice tan that summer -  now 53 years has passed  !   and I'm trying to get my second 50 years in !! 

    individual residences .. Verizon, Gulf Oil , Exxon, Pgh Airport Authority , Allegheny County Comissioners , General Electric, Dept of Energy, US Dept of the Interior , US Army Corps of Engineers , PA Dept of General Services ,  Department of Defense , Pittsburgh Board of Education ,  Pgh HOusing Authority , North Allegheny School District  literally thousands of clients .   After 50 years , now I do this for fun  !   each job poses a challange whether large or small  ! 

    Umm , 50 years of church volunteering ..

    talk specifics with the prospective contractor -  check his knowledgability,  give no money up front.. other than maybe 3-5% upon contract signing  , check references ,  go by your gut ,  on contractd over $ 5K dispurse funds following a specific schedule of values based actual work completed and accepted, consider holding back 5% a retainage until final completion  and acceptance .  These are the prudent steps to follow !  If you follow these you minimize your risk .  

    The homeowner or client should try to prepare a  " scope of work " outline .  The more precise ( at least in their mind ) the better the final outcome is likely to be ..  contingencies and vagueness can lead to fuzzier outcomes .
