Question

Charge For Putting Up Paneling...


How much would you charge for putting up wood paneling in a steel studded trailer house. It's for all the walls and the trailer is about 750 square feet. Would you charge by the hour, square foot, or the job and if so, how much. I've charged for drywall before, but I've never done paneling so I don't have much of an idea of what to charge. Any advice would be appreciated.

Yeah, make 15 real posts. These test posts won't gain you much favor with the membership. It sorta implies that you're up to no good, even if you aren't.

Id charge $15/sheet, plus $2/sheet extra per foot of trailer (length of trailer x $2 plus the $25/sheet) Sometimes I charge less if they can pull the house over to my shop

An easy way to do that now, without mussing up this whole forum like you're doing, would be to post a link to wherever your pictures are parked (photobucket or wherever). Just leave off the www if the forum won't let you post links yet, and the people can cut and past the link into their browser and add their own www.

DUUU...
Cost of paneling X2 + How much money do they have to spend on the porject. I'd grather not leave a lot on money laying on the table when the job is done.

Dont forget! there is bound to be some cut sheets, there has to be an extra surcharge for cutting panels, say another $3 per cut
