I recently damaged some basic 2" press board base (no fancy cuts just basic 45's) during flooring installation. There was approx 140 ln. feet of painted base to be removed and replaced (including painting in place). I was charged by the homeowners brother a contractor $700 labor for removing and reinstalling the 140 ln. ft of base. He charged three hours to remove the base, 17 man hours to install the base, 4 hours taping, and 2 hours paining. I though this was a bit much so now I'm in a big dispute with the homeowner over the charge. Is this a fair amount?
