I have to price a job for new construction and can't figure out what to charge this new client. He wants the trim painted (one coat) white over white pre-primed. is there a running foot charge I can quote him for this area.

i am not from the area. but will try to help. will you be doing it up or a pre finish? i could do a whole bunch of trim with my airless and some saw horses very fast. i will allways pre prime and paint one coat, then putty holes, caulk crack and put the 2nd coat of paint in place. we do mostly new homes so when i bid trim in i know allready how long it will take, then i x it by my hourly price and add materials in . peace, dave

Thanks for the reply, as all of this trim is a new kind of man made product it comes pre-primed and I will only be putting one coat of exterior finished paint on the entire job. what do you think that worth? two story colonial type house
