It depends on the area you live in. I live in Nothern Illinois. I charge $1.75 per square foot to install Ditra on the floor. In that price I only supply labor. I hope this helps!

JS Mossaic works, what area are you in. I know people in many areas. I can ask around if you want.

I would say that would totally depend on your costs to perform the task. Those costs are different in all areas of the country. I would suggest you take any dollar figures offered to you as a loose parameter, but ultimately it should be arrived at by you using your costs, the margin you would like to make and what you think your local market will bear. Be sure to include all components of the installation (all materials, labor, overhead, etc.).
Hope this helps.

JS,
Piggybacking on all that Nyle mentioned, I do think you can track past square foot costs to give you a basis for what you will start with in the future. Having a few different installers our costs can fluctuate depending on who is doing the install, but there is typically a minimum amount of time needed. You obviously don't want to drop below that number, but you also don't want to pull a number out of the sky that doesn't justify the market you are in and price you out of decent money making projects. One thing to keep in mind with uncoupling membranes is the increased consumption of thinset mortar. It's certainly easier labor wise than the boards, but you eat up a lot of material that you wouldn't have with the boards...a cost that should be factored.

Figure all of your job cost, labor, materials and multiply by 1.5
That is the minimum you should be charging to do any work.

This approach seems to be the most common amongst the people I have spoken to on this topic.
