In the past, when doing a complicated job too difficult to quote a contract price, I have billed for my time and material with no mark-up. I realize I am not charging enough for these kind of jobs.
I have an extensive reno of a high end exterior balastrade that requires this kind of quote and would welcome feedback –
specifically:how much do you mark up material?
what percentage do you add to time/material costs?
and,would ipe be suitable for an exterior balastrade and does it weather to a lovely silver-gray colour. I also hear it has a 50 year warranty on rot…Sounds to good to be true…
appreciate your feedback. I learn a lot through this forum
