Not trying to sound like a broken record but - Use the search button.

There is so much info already out there.
Also the cost of doing comical compared to residential is the same.
Only you can answer this because only you know your costs and overhead, (you do, right???)

But to make it simple
just 4 things to know

Your direct overhead,
Your indirect overhead,
Your labor--and that means your have to pay yourself!!!!!!!!!!!
The profit your want your company to make
This will determine your rates

Now your look at any property and figure the time it will take to do it and apply your rate to that. You have your price

I charge more than most and less than some.

seriously use the search feature. There are 100's if not thousands of threads on this.

For every 10 companies there are at least 15 ways to charge.
