Re: Baseboard Installation

monlover, One post will do the trick on this board.
You don't say where you are and labor rates vary widely across the nation.
I don't install MDF and have no idea what it costs. Based on the info provided my best guess would be somewhere between $1.75 and $3.00/ft.
Give us some more info and I'm sure that someone can narrow that figure down for you.

Re: Baseboard Installation

You need to figure out your price per linear foot first, then you can create a price based upon the total linear feet in the project. There's no way for us to figure out how much peer floor.

"Iím new starter at sub contractor business and I can not afford to lose this project."

Careful - oftentimes if you can't afford to lose a bid, you'll lose when you win the bid. Don't under-bid.
