Painting Black 4 Board Fences

Do any of you all incorporate any paint spraying of wood board fences? I am thinking of incorporating this into my offerings as I live in a wealthy, hobby farm community. Interested in how you bid those jobs and roughly what is the time frame it takes to spray per board foot?

I am hoping to start bidding out a few jobs next month to see how it goes.

Thanks!

Get a one foot board and a sprayer and a stopwatch. Time how log it takes to spray the board. You will then know how long it takes. Then multiply how ma board feet you have by...Nevermind.

Then add materials with a markup and the profit you need to make. Also include time to strap the sprayer down in the trailer.
