    Hey All! Have a question pricing out tuck pointing some mortar into brick. I have done it several times for another company I was working for but unfortunately they had to shut down last winter and I am now starting out on my own. But I have a job for this summer on cutting out some old mortar and retucking in new mortar on some brick steps. My question is do you all price this out by the sq. foot plus man hours or how? Its approximately 12 Stairs. I will also need to tint the mortar to match the existing on the stoop as that mortar is still good and doesnt need any work. Thanks!

    I normally do it hourly and give them a range up front. Pointing is always a pandoras box

    $75.00 an hour for just one man? excluding materials? sounds about right to me
