How to Budget a Water Tank Painting Job
Posted Jun 01, 2021 by Dave Scaturro
If you need to decide on a budget for a water tank painting project, it’s important to reach out to qualified and quality contractors. Before signing any deals, discuss your specific needs and how much you’re willing to spend. You may also want to consult with an engineer you’re already working with and ask him/her to write a specification. The description should include an idea of how much the project will cost — but keep in mind that costs vary according to the job.
Projects range widely on whether it's a private job, or a prevailing wage labor and its location. According to the Department of Labor, the Prevailing Wage Rate Determinations lists the wage and fringe benefit rates based on collective bargaining agreements established for a particular craft or trade on the locality in which the public work is performed. In New Jersey, rates vary by county and statewide and by the type of work performed.
