Rates and Pricing

I currently price projects at $55.00 per hour for labor plus the cost of materials.

I would be glad to give cost budgets for simple jobs, typically with a labor cost range. However, I do need to charge for developing budget options for projects, involving numerous choices/options and design development. This is due to the reality that there are usually a number of ways to do things and so the cost and labor can vary greatly. It takes time to develop budgets, collect pricing on different material, gather info on different products and learn the install requirements and how it may affect the project.
