Taunton Press, 10/02. Revised 2nd Edition September 2002. Item #1651
Now in the long awaited second edition, David Gerstel has out-done himself making his Builders Guide better organized, easier to find just that issue you're dealing with, and the book design and graphics are superb. Builders don't need MBAs to create and run a thriving construction business, they need a tight grip on the fundamentals of construction management and business organization. David Gerstel shows how to create accurate estimates, set up an office, shop for insurance and keep the books, how to find the right jobs, figure costs, make bids, write strong contracts and handle change orders. He gives readers information to make the most out of their companies. pb, 265 pages with many photos, drawings, and charts.
