If you are familiar with performing the service, you should know your production rates. Using those rates you charge as much as you need to stay in business. There is no such thing as a "going rate" in the service industry, contrary to popular belief.

Hello, yes I understand but a year ago builder we paying .25 sq ft. and I'm sure they went up and also the cost of everything. I just needed to see if any one new since I had been in the field for the last past year.

With due respect, I don't think you understand. I am not trying to badger you but you need to charge as much as you need to stay in business. If you know your production rates, you factor in your overhead/expenses and you'll know what to charge. The going rate or what contractors are willing to pay is irrelevant if that money cannot keep your business afloat. If you cannot close 4-5 jobs out of ten, then perhaps you are priced too high. If you close more than that, you are too low.

Another heads up and this I will leave to the moderators to further elaborate upon.. If you fill in your signature line with verifiable information like your company name and website you are more apt to get responses.

I agree with what Ken said. I am in Texas too so I am wondering if you are in competition with me. Ultilmately everyone's work speaks for itself but I would feel more comfortable knowing who I am talking to. There is a girl that lives four blocks from me trying to steal my thunder...

I am in Central Texas and the price really does fluctuate depending on the condition of the site. If the labels have already been scraped for example and there aren't high windows we might charge less. Ultimately we go for as much as we think we can get. Usually around .20 cents per sq ft.
