pricing of finishing paneledwalls3/5/16
Good day ! I have been asked to price a paneled office. Floor to ceiling. Ceiling is coffered with 8 in sq.fake beams. I assume you would price it by sq. Ft. Any advise would be appreciated..
Need more info!!!!!
The list can go on forever!
Not sure I'm understanding correctly? If you've been asked to quote a "paneled office", then why not quote a paneled office? I don't see the need to complicate it by trying to figure out a sf price?
I would measure the space, figure out materials and labor etc etc.. Come up with a quote and present it. Other than that I'm not sure what your asking?
Sounds like you are asking for advice on how to do an estimate. There is some material in the knowledge base here at WoodWeb that will be helpful to you. Do a search (box in the top right corner) to see if you find more. To get started, cut and paste each of these these links into your browser;
In the past, I found that the finishing jobs I estimated typically ranged between $8 - $12 per square foot depending on the finish required. Your results may vary....
I'd recommend you learn more about estimating in general and use a spreadsheet or other tool to help make it easier. The Business and Management forum here at WoodWeb would be another source of information you can tap into.
Be very careful on pricing by the square foot.... There are many variables to consider when pricing on - site work.
I specialized in on - site work for many years and I was never able to figure the perfect way to bid work due to the many variables.... Running footage was a favorite of mine.... Averaged $150 - $200 per lineal foot for paneled walls at 8 feet high....prices went up for taller walls or more complicated finishes....
For pricing by sq ft, are you guys figured the square feet of the room or wall/door?
