I have approval for bid to clean a town square in a neighboring town. This job involves flat work that consists of brick and concrete. It also has brick fence ranging in height from 18" to 44" that will be cleaned on one side and top only(the other side faces flower beds and will not be cleaned). I figured an average height 30" to make the calculation easier. There is also curb and gutter around the perimeter of the square. There no issue with water…hook up the buffer and go to work.
I understand that it is almost a must to walk on a project like this to get an accurate assessment of what is required…but…I would like to see a ballpark estimate of the hours that you think it would take you to do the job. If you would like to offer a price that is fine but price is subjective as we all charge differently. To be honest, I figure my hours and add 10% just in case. Now, if it goes better than I expect, I will deduct that 10% when we settle up…personally, I think that is the fair thing to do.
I will go ahead and say that my quote was based on 34hrs.
18000sq ft of flat surface
870ft of 30" brick fence
820ft of curb/gutter
6 3ftx3ftx8ft brick columns
