I wrote my first Benchmark column for Remodeling Magazine in September of this year. The title was “Just One Number”. The goal was to determine if you could apply the same principles to remodeling as physics: a hefty goal, if there ever was one. The ALPHA NUMBER in physics attempts to measure the total mass of the universe. I determined that the “SNIPPY” does the same thing for a remodeling company. Read it on the back page of the September issue and please, tell me how I did.
The October issue wasn’t quite as ambitious in comparing benchmarks to trend lines, but I’d appreciate any feedback you might have from that as well.
