Pricing Question


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

After 6:00 and on Sunday we are closed

Actually I am trying to block off an entry way that is hardly used on the side of the store..Use it for deliveries only
