With the use of the service pricing calculator, you can price your contracting job since it demands various costs, such as material, labor, and overhead expenses. Considering these costs, you can quickly create estimates or use them as standard estimates for recurring contracting services.

The pricing calculator formula is as follows:

Labor cost + Material cost + overhead expenses + Desired profit

For calculating labor costs, you need to have three pieces of information handy:

  • Number of contractors required
  • Number of hours to complete contracting job
  • Paid per hour

Multiply all of them, and you get the labor cost. For example, if a construction job requires 5 days and 5 contractors to complete a job with $100 per hour per labor, then the labor cost would be 5*5*$100= $2,500.

Firstly, list down all the materials and supplies required for the contracting job. Also, you must include time, effort, and gas money when you calculate the material cost.

The profit margin should be 10-20% of your job cost. Make sure you adjust the profit amount in the calculator to achieve your desired profit. If you are confused about the margin, then you can talk to other business owners in your industry to get an average profit margin.
