It depends on size square foot. Does the person own a business or just a single guy making some money. Ask for prior work photos or something.

Thatís a lot of space. Durock gets set in thinset as well so you will be doing the hole floor twice. Get a feel for the homeowner I can pretty much get the idea of how much the homeowners can shell out. Iím in NY and justice by the sound of it would be a lot of money. But I also wouldnít put my name on a tile floor that isnít supported correctly for tile.

Do you have an understanding of how much you need to charge per hour to fund your business to cover overhead and labor costs? If so, since material is supplied all you need to do is estimate the hours it will take you, and multiply it by the hourly rate you need to charge and then add a percentage on top of it for Profit to pay your company... in your case, since it seems you are not certain, whatever amount of hours you estimate it will take you I would encourage you to multiply it by a factor of 1.25 before multiplying it by your hourly rate...

It's irrelevant what anyone else would charge, as everyone's cost structure is different... as one example... if one guy wanted to make $50K/year and you wanted to make $75-$100K/year, that one metric alone would invalidate anyone reply, never mind regional, local and experience differences...

Start by really understanding what you need to charge per hour to cover your loaded Overhead and Labor costs... there's no short cuts, unless you want to potentially make less than what you need...
