Default Bidding painted base

So I have a job coming up here shortly and was invited to make a bid, bidding walls I have no problem with, but painted base board? If any one has any clue or could help me out on what they'd charge per ft that would be great, I'm gonna assume they are already installed so a quick spray might be out of the question.

Go to family members home or your own and trim out some baseboard . See how long it takes now you have a production rate . Add in any factors on the job your bidding and bid it.

Depends on what needs to be done.

Caulk? Set and fill nail holes?

Being painted, then installed, then caulked and touched up?

Profile and size?

etc. etc. etc.

Basically this all needs to be known, then your own production rates as far as time, then $/hr based on your overhead etc. for all that applies.

Good luck!

One minute per foot per task. One to caulk, one to set nails, one to prime, etc., etc. add that divide by 60 mins.= hours= your rate.

Make the math even easier, If you're charging less, change your rate to $60/hr.
