Time it takes to do a job - 12/20/04 04:44 AM
We are all concerned about pricing, if we are charging too much or not enough. Every one is asking how much do you charge for this and how much you are charging for that. All cities have different labor rates. What about the average hours to do the jobs? When asking about how to estimate jobs, most people say figure how much time it will take and then add your materials. Well what if you are not sure on how long it will take you to do the job? What are some average hours (I know we all work at differnt paces) to do the most common jobs. Like cutting in a can light, new ceiling opening, 100/200 amp new or upgrade, etc.... Also say if you work with pipe or rope, this makes a difference in time. Hopefully this will help some of us who still second guess the time when we estimate. Thanks.
