Strategic Construction Bookkeeping - Is as different from standard bookkeeping as someone who spends their day maintaining a fancy dog house is from a professional remodel contractor!
Professional Remodel Contractors - Have told me in no uncertain terms how they feel about unlicensed and super cheap contractors who underbid them for construction projects. In some cases they will try to warn customers about how "The Sweetness of Low Price Soon Fades While The bitterness of Poor Quality Lingers On".
Sometimes The Customer - Will call you back to
fix all the screw-ups and bad construction. In the end the customer
ends up paying more money spending more time than if they had it
done right in the first place.
We See The Same Problem - When some construction company owners shop for bookkeeping services thinking all accountants and bookkeepers are the same.

Professional Construction Accountants And Bookkeepers - Are worth it because each one can do the same amount of work as five or more standard bookkeepers and do it with greater accuracy because they have the proper equipment, training and support for strategic construction bookkeeping.
Just Like You Warn - Homeowners about the hidden cost of cheap low priced construction companies we try to warn construction business owners about the true cost of Cheap Bookkeepers. Too often some contractors will think they can hire a Cheap Bookkeeper to save money in all too often the results are catastrophic!
In The End - Bad Bookkeepers will leave you with unfiled and unpaid taxes, gasping, upset, with tear stained checks, wide-eyed, stupid, mouth open, standing in the middle of the highway of business success staring at the remains of your business, crashed, rolled over, upside down, in the ditch, on fire, with flames belching from all sides with no hope in sight.
I Have Seen Bad Bookkeepers - Ruin far too many businesses, especially construction businesses. In most cases it was Bookkeeping Incompetence, in some cases Bookkeeper Embezzlement and in other cases it appears to have been deliberate. All I know for sure is that I have witnessed business failures that have led to divorce, families destroyed, finances wiped out and people living on the streets. In a few extreme cases I know of contractors that have taken their own lives because they were so stressed out and had lost hope.
