Grades Of Repair Work
Would you agree that this is pretty much a standard. Can restoration be broken down into these 3 basic grades?
Light specs of mold damage
Heavy scratch marks
Facial area corrections
Multiple paper wrinkles
Moderate specs of mold damage
Large areas missing or damaged
Large areas of face or body missing
Significant mold damage
Siginificant scratch marks
Three seems to be adequate without being overly complex but I have to look at every job before I estimate it.
Thanks Chip and others for your responses.
I'm trying to clarify the justification of pricing for various levels of expertise required for different levels of restoration work.
I do the three tier grade system as well, but it's actually a replacement of my former per-hour system.
I more or less determine what grade the photo is in by how long I believe it would take me to complete it instead of what is wrong with it. I apply that to both restoration and alteration-- # of estimated hours is what determines the grade.
1-2 hours is grade 1.
3-4 hours is grade 2.
5+ hours is grade 3.
I still offer the hourly rate for people who prefer that, and it's much better now that I've gone from $8.50/hr to $25/hr. :P
