does "redoing" mean. Your description is very limited.

Kind of hard to come up with a price without a scope of work, but i'm sure you know that.

To me doesn't sound like the kind of job most people would charge by the square foot, I wouldn't price a reno by the square foot. Certain aspects of it maybe but not the whole thing. Too many variables.

You are a bit over your head here.

1.Not all screen porches are the same.

2.Redoing? That could be anything from demolition and rebuild to a lick of paint.

3. Location has a lot to do with cost---Manhattan N.Y will cost a lot more than Manhattan Kansas.

take down old screen and striping. install new base and caps and screen. would you still charge by the square foot (and how much) or still by the job. have been remodeling for a few years but never ran across a screening job. thanks for all your help.

I just did one last week--9 openings--replace cedar trim all around--replaced screen--

About 165 on materials and 5 hours labor---plus 2 hours to stain--

Never charge any thing by the foot---the customer might recheck your measurements and deduct the difference. Always by the job--with scope of work spelled out--along with thinks that are not.
Trash disposal--paint--things a person might assume are included.

yeah I never price anything by the foot, always by an estimation of man hours needed. Just too many variables, you can get a place that is a simple square layout that you can pull right up out front, or a place with a lot of corners to drywall and trim, and the only way up is 3 stories of stairs, nearest parking 2 blocks away.
