Demo Trim Price


Anyone care to offer an estimate for removing 3 1/4" base and QR. I've completed the job but the insurance co want's several prices broken out. This is the only one I don't have a reasonable idea on. TY in advance.

If you already did it, you should have
a much better idea how long it took
than I do.

Re: Demo Trim Price


I once did an insurance claim for a customer. The bid was a lump sum for all repairs. It was approved by the homeowner and insurance company. After the work was completed, the insurance company wanted a break down of what each task cost. I guestimated so the total reflected my original bid total. They tried to pick it apart a little but eventually backed down.

Re: Demo Trim Price


I would have thought a simple question would illicit a simple answer, but not this simple "minded". If you don't know the answer don't show your ignorance and clutter the threads. I simply needed a reasonable figure to use for a demo price of trim by the linear ft. I was the second contractor on this job and because the customer is a friend don't have the original contractor's price and my estimating program doesn't have it listed. Thank you in advance should you provide an answer.

Yup, pretty simple minded.
We don't know where you are. (NYC?
Rural Alabama? Moon? wages may vary)
We don't know the conditions. (unoccupied ranch?
44th floor condo? 4th floor walk-up?)
We don't know your overhead...........

Re: Demo Trim Price


Simple Answer: $423.95 a linear foot for removal.

My answer is based off of removing base and quarter round from an occupied duplex (with an uncrated pitbull), located on the ghetto part of the moon.

You are welcome for an answer to your simple question.

Good day!

Re: Demo Trim Price


Ok, My Friend ( That seems funny)

Before this thing turns into a Blood Bath and Beyond, you should know that you have chummed the waters of the shark tank. First post and asking a how much question is just fresh meat to the hungry hounds.

Take some time to read this.

The truth is no one can answer your question with any accuracy, only you can.

Back off the noob boys

I don't think getting snotty is going to help your cause. A simple search of how much, should answer your questions

Re: Demo Trim Price


The first contractors price??
You mean the "real" contractor?

My friend, if you can't price out base and quarter round, then what can you price??

Re: Demo Trim Price


You already have the number... you said you did the job, and you have EVERYTHING else broken down simply subtract all your broken down numbers from your final charged price... and guess what remains?? the difference is your answer.
