you will have to research your ecomonic region for what the job is competitive for. '
for example some rates that are used in my region, but not necessary in yours.
Labor only rates.
Decks, $4.25 a square foot
Fences, Six foot $6.00 a running foot.
Painting, $.57 a square foot with little prep work.
Again, the best way to be competitive and get jobs is to call busines's that are in this line of work.
