Re: Siding Install


IF you don't know how to price it there is a good chance you don't know how to install it. Whenever I bid anything I don't know how to do I have to double or triple the going rate to help finance the learning curve. Sounds like $7.00 - $10.50 should work.

Good Luck
Dave

Re: Siding Install


Just throw out a high price, your customers will probably be stoned so it shouldn't matter too much. Make sure it wont cut into thier cheeba fund.

Re: Siding Install


You are of course trained and licensed to install this correct?

Siding falls under carpentry here, so you have your C of Q. ?

As far as pricing goes, my standard answer is two million dollars.
