What's the going rate to fix mold???

We have a contractor friend who is helping us fix a mold problem in our house. He won't let us pay him, but we want to give him something. What's the going rate? I think all he has to do is replace our window sill and fix the crack in the window installation, but I'm not sure how much to pay him for that.

  • He's not replacing the window, he's caulking the inside/outside because there's a gap between the window and the house. And he's going to replace the window sill. It's wood, and it's damp, so he needs to replace that.

  • i would invite him over for dinner then hand him a card saying how thankful you are for him doing all that work then make sure to stick around 50 or 75 in there. and if he won't take the money at least he got a nice hot meal and a sweet card.

  • Thanks guys! The weird thing is, that it's not a mold problem, I thought it was, but it's not. We couldn't find the source of the smell ANYWHERE!!!!!! Just these random things start smelling. The boxes in our garage started stinking, and random things in my son's room start stinking really bad. Do any of you have any idea of what it might be?
