Question

Building Deck


I am doing a side job building a deck, and i am having a little trouble on figuring my cost for labor. Someone told me to charge material X 2. Does this sound about right? Your opinion will be helpful. Thank you

Re: Building Deck


The person who told you that is incorrect.

Sorry, no disrespect, but I need to close the thread. Pricing questions are directed to here. Please read to get a better understanding of your pricing.
