residential new construction in tx estimating question
All depends on your own costs.....
I'm in GA, and that's higher than what people are charging here. I don't do a per-device cost; I do a full take-off and you can break it down however you want.
I just glanced over some numbers from a job we're doing now; duplex recep $19, S1 switch $22, S4 switch $30. Appliances, equipment, service, etc..... all have their own cost above that. This house is 4k sq ft with a detached garage and pool house, total cost is $38k. With the two other buildings it's about 6k sq ft total so about $6.30/sq ft. They had another bid for $4.25/sq ft.
I do very few houses as the margins here in that area are too low to be competitive. I think I bid 15% profit on this and you see how much higher I was than the next guy. We would have lost several thousand dollars doing it for their price.
Full labor cost avg for me is $23/hr.
