I'm trying to figure out a good price to charge for painting/drywall and taping.

Anyone charge similar?

Priming: .30/sqft

Painting walls: .80 - 1.00 /sqft.

Painting Baseboards / Trim: .40/sqft

Painting Doors and frames (6 pannel with one coat): $25

Drywall Install: .60/sqft (not including material)

Taping: .60/sqft (not including material)

Sanding: .30/sqft

How can you charge by sq ft for trim? Should it be lin/ft?...and maybe taping/sanding should be considered one item,otherwise...

The price is always the agreeable amount between both parties, all things considered, for that particular contract.

I have found many people charge $1.00 a linear foot to paint trim this seems like a lot. Does anyone charge cheaper ?
