Re: Steel Framing Prices


Dont listen to these guys there just fooling around!

This is what i do but its very acurate.

Take the weight of a stud you will be using weigh it on a digital scale. (must be digital)

Take that number and multiply it by 4.375

divide that number by the amount of linear feet you have.

dont forget your P&O


You should be somewhere around . . . . . . .

Re: Steel Framing Prices


Dude...your in Toronto, It's a union town, most of this site is US based contractors living in a shambles of a recession fighting for every job they can get and to top it off Steel Framing is not that common of a system here or in the US unless you are doing T.I. work.

The real answer is based on your experience, if you have none you need to get it by earning your strips, I'm not going to sit here and give you my costs which incidentally are probably different then your costs on pricing a project.

Now market rate is a different story, but again, every job is different.

we're not playing

If you are a legit contractor you would understand that someone else price can cause you to go out of buisness. why would you want to do that to yourself.
