Cathedral Roof Tongue And Groove Ceiling Pricing Help


I am trying to quote a tongue and groove cathederal ceiling and dont know where to start. Client wants a fixed price per sq foot. I know that someone will reply, or want to, figure out how long it will take and multiply by your hourly rate, add in expenses etc. I've done all of that. What I'm looking for is an average price and/or some comparative prices. Ideas and examples.

Thanks in advance

Scott

Re: Cathedral Roof Tongue And Groove Ceiling Pricing Help


There is no such thing as an average price...prepare to be bombarded.

I will do the first one...

What one needs to make in Helena Montana will be vastly different from what one needs to make in Cranberry BC

Besides it'll take a 1000-1500 candians dollars for each dollar i make depending on the exchange rate.

now is the time to educate your customer that you cant verify for him that your rate is an industry "standard" because there is no such thing.

do it for a loonie a linear foot and youll be safe

Divide what you need to make by project sq ft. Works for me.

That's how I wanted to do it, but I got in a pissing match with the HO over 400 clams, so you get what you pay for. I'm still happy with the end result.

I'll probably get back to that project next week... painter is staining and finishing the stuff now, so I'm building a few custom cabinets in the shop in the mean time.

Gonna get interesting... have a few irons in the fire.

Re: Cathedral Roof Tongue And Groove Ceiling Pricing Help


if you know the base cost of your per square ft. with a regular truss roof similar builds you can multiply that cost by 1.5 and come up with a fairly close number per sqft also you should figure out bdft for your roof decking and add that into your price.

Our average 30x30 with 5 purilns can cost from $60,000 to 120,000 depending on options such as dormers and overhang over balcony (for the roof structure).

Also your base cost per sqft multiplyed by .5 can cover your out door sqft with the exeption being covered out door areas that should be multiplyed by 1.
you can get a fairly decent number this way. you should to use your own common sense for variables.
