Question

How much would you charge to grind, polish, crystalize and seal marble floors? This is for a hotel ...4140 sq feet total. Also, do you know how much tax I must charge??? I am in South Florida ...tough competition down here.


Answer

It will probably stay tough, so you should plan on attending an IICRC training course on marble care in order to hone your pricing skills. You can also look at www.marble-institute.com for insight.
You must know your capabilities in order to do this work well and with profit.
As to sales tax, go online to the Florida Dept. of Revenue and do a search for your county.
