Based on the way your question is worded, I would suggest doing your normal calculation and subtracting the "paint part" of materials.

I read it several times...maybe I missed something.

If that doesn't work, most of us on this board just charge $99 per room.

Mitch...is that you? You back?

Thanks for posting on PaintTalk.com. Straight pricing questions are frowned upon here, as are 'Going Rate' questions. If you are a contractor seeking advice regarding your pricing structure, the Moderators of this forum would like to direct you to this pricing thread - Pricing, Estimating and Success.

PaintTalk.com is designed for professional contractors to discuss issues and topics related to the commercial and residential painting industries.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. This thread has been closed.
