Do I tip for this?

We're having a swingset installed in our backyard; it's being done by a guy who owns his own company and does this for a living - just him and 2 assistants.

We're paying almost $500 for the installation and it will take all day. Do I tip, and if so, how much would you think??

This just isn't a situation you're in too often lol.

  • I wouldn't tip. You're paying them to build it...what's the tip for? I mean, we hired a guy to build DS's swing set, he came, he built it and we paid him. 

    I'd definitely offer cold water though.
