I'm fairly new to working for myself. I live in gulf shores, AL. last year Ivan ripped us a new #[email protected], which was unfortunate for most, but the house I live in survived, so it turned into job security for me and hundreds of others. I prefer inside painting but I have been offered an outside job. I have done a lot of outside work, but not an entire house by myself. I have an enormous house to paint. it's all outside work, but it is everything. trim, facie, gables, soffits, decks, railings, etc...I am unfamiliar with pricing for outside work. I charge .32 - .45 /sqft for inside, aside from faux, but this house has a lot of ladder work/ boomlift work, which ever ends up more cost effective. my question is where do I find pricing guides? I have heard that most pricing for work of this nature comes from insurance companies and what they are willing to pay their customers for their loss. I don't know where to find listings from them. I am going to write the companies I can find on the web, and request a list, but I do not know if that is the right course of action. I appreciate any help anyone can give me.
