99% of our work is contract, but when we get a home that had a strike, and it is an insurance job, we have actual prices that were recorded from other strike jobs, a lot will depend how you go about your testing, we do a breakdown test, which requires some serious, time consuming disconnect work, after were done with the megger testing and have all the readings recorded, we do the visual, we have a fiber scope, that we do wall inspections with, this allows you to inspect for physcial cable damage, you would be supprised what is found with this method, some cables, that checked out with breakdown testing, look like a spent fire cracker.
For a 3 bedroom 2 story 2,100 sq ft home, with both megger, and scope inspections you may be looking at 30 to 40 hours min. depending on the job conditions, one home i recall took a lot longer, they had piles of junk. and boxes in every room, number of fixtures, and fixed appliances will have to be considered.
Remember,your name will be on the report.
