    never heard that before,a pound for holes.I also think you are way off the mark wanting 450 for 9m2,if you were told 325M2 THEN THATS ONLY£225.Iwould have charged £250 inc mats and trims.Good luck anyway bud...Bri

    I know this is your first job . 9m2 @ £25 m2 = £225 which another tiler will do
    in 5 hours then an hour to grout next day, you wont get much work if you
    charge day rate all the time try and do more for familly and friends so your speed
    improves , best of luck.

    you need to stop smoking and talking and taking so many breaks...lol

    next time you are grouting try and make your mix a bit thinner and the grout will spread more easy.Let grout dry a little then use washboy to remove excess grout,this way it will take you an hour tops. 3hrs pmsl

    Sounds very very expensive.

    Works out £50 a sqm, where as my price would have been around the £220 - £250 mark inc materials, but if you think you can get people to pay that sort of price then good for you
