Re: Pricing For A Small Job


Where are you located first off?
Second, how big is the job?
Third, how high are the ceilings?
Fourth, what texture?
Lastly, what kind of beer is on the job?

Re: Pricing For A Small Job


Hours times dollars equals total plus (material times 2) plus tax

example

10 hrs x 40.00 = 400.00
50.00 materials x 2= 100.00
subtotal= 500.00 x .03= 15.00
total 515.00

then send me 10% for consultation

Re: Pricing For A Small Job


Hi Jack,
The best way is by the sq ft, you can use wall sq ft but i use floor sq ft works great.

like this

100 sq ft room (on the floor) with walls only

I would have to charge about $5 a sq ft (this is modest)that includes everything. So @ $500 now

Now ad $300 for the paint an primer.

so for every 100 sq ft of house charge $800 fully finished.

There is more complicated ways to do it but the number ends up the same, so stick to this.

if you have to do the ceiling, add 30% to everthing.
