Refinishing wood gym bleachers


I have the opportunity to bid on refinishing the bleachers at our small town high school and am unsure of how to figure labor costs.
Also, what type of coating would be best for that type of application?

Appreciate any help!

I will be resurfacing the noses on the seat edges then scuffing and applying a coating. Not going to strip.

I would find out what coating is on there first........maybe you already know that.......sand, remove all dust, then reapply a clear coat to match what was originally done.

If your bidding a project for a school I'm assuminging your a contractor, only you know your own production rates, overhead cost, and profit. These figures are unique to each company. I can't tell you how long it would take only you know your production and don't forget to include direct expenses too into your proposal.

Don't forget to check state and local law. You may have to include sales tax, the project is a repair/maintenance on existing structure/surfaces. The specs may call for low or 0 VOC products, because your in a school.

I am not a contractor and that's the dilemma, I don't know what to charge.
I got the opportunity because my wife is on the school board and I am known in town for the quality of my work on my own houses.
