    well...does Robert normally charge $30.00 per man hr (or is that $30.00 per hour...big difference). Where did he come up with that figure?

    To be most accurate using sqft for jobs is a good idea. I would start there.

    Also, do you know your productivity? How much work you can do per hour? That will play a role in the way you quote.
