handy man

Hey pros. How much does this handyman charge to install vinyl tile in an entryway and stair leading to the basement? Sub floor condition is to be determined and is optional at this time. Peel and stick is an option but will most likely glue down. Any tricks of the trade are also welcome. I have the needed skill and I can read a tape. It's the pricing of the job that is in question. Thanks!

You should have an idea about how much you charge an hour and estimate how long it would take you to do the job. Small jobs like this should be charged by the hour. Vinyl installers charge according to removal of old flooring, floor prep, plywood underlayment installation, quarter round installation, in addition to the number of square yards installed. There may also be other charges depending on what else must be done to accomplish the job.

Vinyl floor covering on stairs not only looks cheesy but would also need some type of metal stair nosing. There are vinyl stair treads available with attached stair nosing. These are usually used in commercial applications but there are some available for residential and light commercial. An example is at http://www.robertbrooke.com/stairtre...ead_vinyl.html
