Just wondering how you guys figure estimates on decks. Not talking about material end of it, just bidding the labor. I have always just estimated hrs of labor and totaled that up plus profit and bid it that way. Is there some $ per sq ft formula that anyone uses for a quick estimate? Also how would you adjust your rates for more difficult jobs, like where the backyd is a hill running away from the house, so the outside edge of the deck may be 10'-12' or more up in the air from ground level?
