Finishing a basement, need help with bid/estimate

willygmcdDecember 5, 2012

Hello. I am having a family friend finish my basement in about a month. He is a general contractor. He will be doing insulating, framing, sheetrocking, taping, paintings and adding new trim.
The basement is a simple rectangle with 1100sq ft to be finished.

I am wondering what approximately can I expect him to charge me for labor. (I already know the cost of materials) He will be giving me an estimate, but I just wanted to see if I could get a ballpark idea from anyone out there. Any ideas would be great! Thankyou!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Quick rule of thumb is to double materials for a ballpark labor estimate.
