You need to provide more information before you can get any type of ball park price.

Where are they going, upper level, basement etc?

Is the access good?

Is the area prepared?

If not what is involved?

If you are asking to get a ballpark as to what you should charge the customer because you are doing it yourself you just need to figure out how long it will take you and your crew to do it.

Good Luck

Hi Tenzin,

The prior comment was correct. No one has any of the information necessary to give you an intelligent answer.

Over the years I found the best way to learn how to price, as well as learn how to perform the work was to hire subs who did what ever specialised kind of work I was unsure how to price or complete. Pro's teach Pro's. I learned how to properly price and perform a multitude of items and slight variations of each.

If you are unsure, do yourself and your client a favour. Hire someone who is sure and learn from them. Next time you will tackle a similar project with ease.

But stick around and watch them.
