A quick way to calculate contractor charges

For a good article on how to calculate contractor charges, check out the article at rants, raves and real estate. Blogger Spencer Barron suggests calculating the maximum that you should pay for repairs with the formula

Cost of materials + Hourly labor cost (time *
number of workers * 10%) = Most you should have to pay.

For paygrade Barron substitutes $30 for unskilled and $50-$75 for skilled. Don’t get caught unprepared and wind up being overcharged. Do your calculations before you hire a contractor, and only hire a contractor who is charging a fair price.
