Costs For Fur Down Removal


Hi everyone,
I have a fur down that is 19 ft log and 2 foot tall. I am trying to come up with a price to charge to remove it and repair the wall and ceiling. There is no mechanical in the fur down. The cabinets will be down and out of the way.

Re: Costs For Fur Down Removal


If you have fur down that far on your log, I would reccomend a good shaver or razors and shave gel.

You get an ear full at first around here. A rights of passage if you will.
You crossed the " how much do I charge for..." line too. So you may just keep your gloves up and your back on the ropes for the first round.

Safe to say no one calls a soffit a fur down outside of your area

I realized that after I posted the question and there was nothing left to do except stand back and wait for the beating.

I will reword the question. What is the average cost for removing a soffit 19 foot long? (here we go again...)

Last time I saw fur down 19'x2' I had to find a Brazilian bikini wax expert. I would check the Hollywood strip for pricing and technical help

1. How long will it take?
2. what is your hourly rate?
3. What is the material cost?

Or use the Ben Dover estimating format.

If that little bus took you to the same school I went to they would have taught you all need to know to answer this silly ass question for yourself.
Simple grade school math. Addition and multiplication. You got that far in school didn't you?

It was a simple question. I was trying to compare prices to what some of you guys charge to see if I was in the same ball park. Don't have a stroke over it dude. Your blood pressure is climbing.
