Your at .11 cents per square foot which is ok if there is not to much clean up however, i would charge additional for crack filling, i normally charge a minimum of $30.00 to $50.00 for crack filling (residential)

Try this: go up the additional $50.00, and then discount the total ($625) by $ 25.00, for " Prior Customer Discount". That rounds it off to $ 600 for you, and sort of impresses the customer. Just remember, in the future,that you should stay on the high side of things with this customer...then give them their little "discount" that they will no doubt be looking for. It works for the both of you. And, stupid as it seems and sounds, they really think that they are getting "something for nothing". Try it...it works.
