If you can get your hands on a propane stripper, a monsoon( machine that lays stripper solution) and a good walk behind scrubber, you can really cut your time. Rent if you have to. I always figure what i need per ft² to be profitable then add any chemicals and/ or equipment and get my total bill. Consider how much it will cost for any help that needs to be hired in your ft² pricing and charge accordingly. If it ain't making you money, it ain't worth doing.

Elevators? I would give them two prices. One would be for a real good strip with edges detailed perfectly and all somewhere in the ballpark of $0.20 to 25 per sq.ft.. The other would be for simple stripping, laying the solution out, running your machine over it to remove old finish, suck up and rinse. Nothing fancy. Make this somewhere in the range just below the first figure. You will make a nice profit because it sounds like simple work with no finish applied. I would bet that they take the lower price.

Thanks that's what I needed.
Does that include price for pads and dissolver or stripper?

The guy said I needed dissolver? Is that stripper, or is he saying its a harsher coating???

Perfect!!! They are supplying all the stripper, I talked with him today. Thanks!

I'm thinking of using my 2 17" 175 machines with 19" Black pads do you have any other recommendation?
