We charge by a mixture of all those. How many heads it will take, how much pipe we would have to use, number of zones, etc etc. Labor added on depends on the overhead the company uses.

how much do you charge for what?

Labor rate x number of man hours = Labor charge

Material x markup = Materials

Labor charge + Materials = Total Price

Labor rate must cover direct cost of labor plus contribution to overhead plus profit.

Materials markup = Cost of materials plus warranty plus overhead contribution plus profit.

I figure $75/rotor and $35/spray + any other few such as rental, locating etc....
