Fire Damage Demo


Here is the situation. My client just had an abandoned house next door to him catch on fire. It was close to setting his house on fire, but the dept kept the fire next door. The guy wants the remains of the garage removed and disposed of. I guess the house next door is his also. Anyhow my question is...Do i charge the price that i would normally charge is the building was complete or should i drop the price? I was actually thinking to increase the price as there is soooo much ash left in the property from the fire. I would need to shovel all of the ash out or scoop up the ash with a bobcat to remove. Im kind of stuck, any help will be greatly appreciated. Also i am looking at about .30 a cubic foot. Approx 11,000 CF buidling. It was a 2 story property now a 1 with siding, plywood, etc. No doors, no windows, no basement, etc.

I would not drop the price. You have to figure out how long it'll take you to do the job, costs/OH, profit & quote it acordingly.

The scooping stuff sounds like a job for a crew of 10 dollar an hour guys from Labor Ready.

Don't drop your price and have someone wet hose while your scooping.

Re: Fire Damage Demo


Do not drop the price, just remember that with the ash and all, it might take longer. Figure your cost and profit and give a honest estimate.
Good Luck

Re: Fire Damage Demo


I think I in your place would have charged a little more than usual.because doing up new things is different and remodeling and incorporating needs a lot of planning apart from execution which should be better priced.
