Hi guys, first post. Looking for a good irrigation estimate template, anybody got one?
Its as simple As (Parts * Markup) + (Labor * Labor Rate).
Get a price sheet from your supplier, build a spreadsheet on that so you can get a good parts quote. Labor hour estimating just takes experience.
It can be as simple or complex as you want.
Attached is a super simple version
EDIT: 6.3 kb, beat that boots
Is that per zone or per system?
Down here that would be for a whole subdivision lol.
Mike, that is why Floridah irrigation is notoriously crappy.
Tell me about it. You would not believe the stuff we have to go back and fix daily from all the contractor f-ups that they install on our new commercial jobs. Something really needs to be done about the licensing procedure down here in Florida. It makes no sense to even have your own company or even work for someone down here because you kill yourself for peanuts compared to what everyone else is getting around the country.
Yikes....you getting under bid by the amigos?
I wish it was just them. Down here everyone low balls and does the work for nothing. It has alot to do with the way the licensing works. All you have to do is work for a company for 3 years in any capacity and you get your license from the county. No test required. I work for Valleycrest so I really don't feel the pinch most of the self-employed small business owners do. It just gets to me after awhile of all the shoddy work that goes on down here.
Sorry for hijacking this thread just got a lil off topic.
At Valleycrest we use flat rate pricing on all of our services. I dont know if this could work for you or not, but we usually charge 60 dollars a rotor installed and 45 dollars a 6" spray with nozzle installed. This includes all materials and labor.
