At Your Service: Tipping contractors

Q: How much do you tip a company who is re-plastering your ceiling?

A: If the plasterers are providing a special service above and beyond what is contracted for, you may choose to tip $10 for each crew member and/or $15 or so for the foreman. Tipping amounts are situational and always merit-based, especially for those in service industries — you need not tip unless the job was exceptional or the workers went “that extra mile” for you.
