Not according to Hammer450r...he can price labor and material over the internet.

Unless of course, the person giving the "ballpark" cost has done the same thing your looking to do or has had a similar experience.
Btw,almost nothing is " impossible"!
Maybe you meant to say an " accurate " cost for the job is impossible to give.

Thanks Sublime you get my point, he said it was going to be stripped and all he wanted was the head installed. I was a framer for 20 years and could probably do the job myself in my sleep and it would still be less than a 3 hour job. Wasn't brain surgery. i wasn't giving a ballpark on a deck or addition lol
Sublime what part of Jersey?

Doesn't matter what the rules are....you just priced a job out over the internet...labor and material without even looking at the job. How old are you....you sound like your 18.

When did he say it was going to be stripped? That header probably needs to go end to end as per the new codes. Permits, Engineered plans, labor, materials. No where near $800 unless you go the craigslist route.

I am 44 and I got it from when HE SAID " I am ripping off the siding and going down to the frame inside and out."

Framer for 20 years, he asked for a ballpark on just the work to replace the beam.
Read again its very simple.

I did not give a price, just said 800 aint gonna do it! Framer for 20 years should know better than to quote site unseen. Also should be referring him to an engineer/archy first so you know what beam you will be working with. Did you even ask about the type and condition of the existing foundation?
