Sid, My company has lots of overhead and yours doesn't, that means legitimately you can/should charge less than we do. At the same time we can offer the customer a few things you can't, like always(almost) same day service and faster service. But, there is nothing wrong with either of us, we are just offering slightly different packages to our customers. When I was in your position I would try to get about $60 per hour for myself. I also would find that many customers who started with a non licensed contractor were unwilling to pay the price of a legitimate contractor.
