Working on a bid for a Rhodes furniture store that is being remodeled as a rooms to go. Its 41,000 sq ft. building. I'm subbing the windows. Vaccuum carpet. Sweep and mop hard floors. Dust wood trim and baseboards around the walls. Clean 2 water fountains, 2 bathrooms, a breakroom and an office. About 8 large mirrors to clean. I don't have WC so I'm gonna use a temp service. I'm thinking 4 people should get the job done in a day. Does that sound realistic? Labor Ready charges 12.25/hr=$392. I was gonna bid .15 per sq ft. Too high or too low? Including windows. Windows will cost me $600. I could use this job. I have 3 uprights and a shop vac. I dont wanna look un prepared. Is that good enough?

James, If I am reading this right, your cost is going to be $392 in labor and $600 for the windows. At .15 a foot , that comes to $6,150. Which leaves you $5,158 to work with. If you are able to get that much for 32 hours I would definitely not go in with a wet vac. At least take a $500 heapa filter canister vac in to use. A shop vac will let dust back into the air and they look cheap as well. I would charge for 32 hours labor at around $800 and add on around $150 more to the windows for a total of $1,550 , but I think it will take alot more hours than you think, but not sure without seeing it.
