Gerry, That’s a great question you posted. Pricing our work is always one of the hardest things to do when you’re trying to make a living at this. The best advice I ever got was from a semminar I attended years ago done my Marc Adams…......and I see you have taken some classes at one of his schools. There’s a lot to take into consideration both on the labor side of the job and the material cost of a job, and where certain catagories should be listed to get a fair price for both you and your customer. I don’t know if Marc Adams has written a book on pricing (I know he has a lot of books out there), but if so, it would be a good source. If you would like to PM me, I will be glad to share any info that might help.
