In my experience yard hourly charges are useless in comparing final costs. Svendsens charged me 350/gal for bottom paint and KKMI was advertising the same paint for 250. You also don't know how fast their workers are or how many supervisor hours are charged. Over the years I have found the lowest cost jobs occur during the busiest season, simply because they are working faster and are more efficient, resulting in lower total hours.
