Pricing Question
 
A contractor here in Houston has given me a price that I want to see if its in the ballpark, so here goes...this is in my store

31 lf of 8ft sheetrock wall.....3 5/8 metal studs 16"oc...floated, textured and painted with 3 1/2" crown molding on the top and base cove also...all after hours and NO PERMIT is required

He quoted me 1774.00

Sounds like a entryway or single room job? Anyway figuring this as say 250 s/f of wall, about 75 l/f each for crown & cove, his estimate would be high here in Mo, but in Houston, well that's a whole different world might be about in line for the area. I always recommend to new clients that they get at least 3 bids and be very specific in the scope of work to be included in each bid. The fact that this work has to be done after hours, will also add a bit to the bill. Kind of depends on what you mean by after hours, can you do it after 5pm, or is it a type of place where it has to be done say after between midnight to 5am. HTH
