My teenage sons and I were asked to help my sister in law rebuild a front porch. I have no intentions to do this on a reg. basis, but just to give my boys a side job. Both of the boys have taken construction trades classes at the local skill center and would like to take on this project.
I have no idea what would be a fair labor cost for my sons, want to be fair to them and not wanting a family dissagreement, ect.....
I am very expirenced a home remodeling and pretty good at estimating time and material to complete the task. Any idea of a ballpark labor cost vs material for deck work?
I have heard double material price for labor to get you in the ball park. I want to equate this to an hourly wage for the boys.
I know this is a wide open question, just want to be fair to my SIL and boys. SIL has no intentions to hire a proffessional, If we don't do it, she plans on hiring a hack accross the street.
