Life Cycles and Cost Estimates:

Home Maintenance Costs

All costs are estimates and prices will vary with how busy construction is at the time of quote. Prices will vary with quality of material, level of difficulty with installation and amount of preparation work. Low slope, steep slope, height of building, flat lot or on the side of a cliff will affect the quote. Always get a minimum of three quotes, type and length of warranty, references and always hold back 10% payment for 30 days.

NOTE: By the hour trades will charge anywhere from $30 an hour for a carpenter to $100 an hour for a telephone repairman. Ask for a rate and an estimate of how long the job will take. Not all tradesmen give free estimates.
