Question On Pricing Demo Work


Do most of you guys do demo by the sq.ft. and if so what do you charge. If not how do you price a demo job. I have a few coming up, the are old houses with plaster and the general wants me to demo the plaster and slates and remove all the old windows and doors, but i dont know how to charge out for this.

Any info would be great.

Forget the SF pricing- you need to figure out how long the job is going to take you and your crew, and calculate the total cost based on the number of hours times your hourly billing rate. You then add for dumpsters (if you're supplying them), and other materials, supplies, and add markup for overhead and profit.

Especially in something as varied as demo, SF pricing is useless- and it's even more useless when it's found on an internet forum from people all over the country/world.

I don't know about having it as my sig line, but I should really save the text someplace so I can cut and paste it instead of retyping it all the time....lol.

BTW- you ready to come down and frame my addition for me some weekend? Should be ready in the spring.
