Tipping is a fairly simple activity but it can get controversial fast, if you’re not careful. Unfortunately, this can be a concern of yours when you’re getting replacement windows. So, should you top your window replacement contractor?
The Rule of Thumb
The rule when it comes to tipping window replacement contractors is that there is no rule. Generally, tipping is appreciated but it is not required. And if you do decide to tip, there is no set amount you should give. Some say it’s safe to tip up to 20% of your project’s total cost, while others factor in how hard the work is, like if your window replacement is being carried out when it’s extremely hot or cold.
It’s also important to note that a window company might actually have a rule against tipping their employees. If you insist that they accept a tip, you can get your replacement windows installer in more trouble instead. To be safe, you can ask your project manager in the beginning what their company’s policy on tipping is.
Other Ways to Show Appreciation
Tipping is inherently a way to show your appreciation for a job well-done. If you can’t tip, however, there are other ways to show your appreciation such as providing snacks or drinks throughout the day. You might even consider giving food or gift cards as tokens once the job wraps up, or leaving a review online to detail the stellar work they did for you.
