What do you guys charge to install kerdi?

Down here we charge $1.50 per sq.ft to install backerboard, but starting to get more kerdi jobs and was wondering how to charge for that?

What do most of yall charge?

That's not including the Kerdi though, right? You'd be giving them free product! I plug it in at $2.50/ft materials included.

Bill. Does that include the dryset as well? Not that thats alot of xtra $$ but I`m using Ditraset @$12 bucks a bag,Good stuff !!!!! I`m kinda in your area Sothern NH + I get $500 to do the complete system not including the system cost of course ,approx 100-120 sq ft ie...kerdi,tray,curb+drain,takes me an EASY !! day=5-6 hrs + if I gota do a mud bed even more. Seem thats all I`m doin is showers ! not realy but I`ve done15 or 20 in the last 9 or 10 months.

Maybe I`m charging too much? but the customers don`t blink. Please give me your take on it I certanly want to stay competitive but still not cut my own throat! Thanks !

LOU423, Your not too high. I just looked at a recent one I did, 112 sq. ft. kerdi in a shower, $540.00 labor only to install Kerdi. Simple 3 walls, and the base with foam curb. Had to mud the base because of the floor being way out of level.

That price is to install the kerdi membrane. For shower pans, I don't use the preformed tray. Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer to float it with mud. In addition to the kerdi, there's also a labor charge of 30.00 a foot for the shower pan (which doesn't include the labor charge for the tile footage, but DOES include building the curb).
