I was underbid by $1000 on my last school (and I priced it as low as I could but the lift alone was almost half the price!), so I would really love some opinions on my next big bid. Here’s a summary with pics below:
About 5000 french panes total
-3600 of them are OLD with chipping paint, 21 frenchies per window, each window needing a ladder/stool even from inside.
-1400 of them are newer pellas with vinyl frames.
About 160 triple-track storms cover the old windows. The maintenance guy said they can be stubborn (as we know all too well).
About 100 “normal” panes ranging from average-sized to large
Definitely will need a lift, probably a boom lift. I recently got a quote on an all-terrain scissor lift at about $1200 for a week; not sure of boom pricing, but imagine it’s somewhere in the same range.
I’m thinking I can possibly wfp the pellas, but I’m gonna bid it assuming it will all have to be trad just in case.
Last company was a 5-man crew and it took them 3-4 days, but they skipped a bunch of windows and did poor quality work.
I’m guestimating it’s 90 hours of work? …so maybe $4500 labor + lift?
Here are the pics (they don’t show the interior hallway windows, but the counts above should still give you an idea):
