Most contractors charge by the job, not the day. If you’re doing minor repairs, see what local handymen (handymans?) in your area are making. If you’re doing a full-on renovation, set your fee based on the entire job, including materials, subcontract labor (if any), debris hauling, design work, etc and of course a profit for yourself.
