    Hey guys I was asked for a seasonal price on a job, I have a per push price from 2 to 10, is there a formula to use. for example 2-4 would be 290, 4-6 would be 405, 6-8 would be 570 and 9 and above would be T/M. should I take the higest and the lowest for a per month price, or an average???

    What I do is take my average seasonal snowfall, divide by 6 and multiply by the rate for a 3"-6" snowfall where:

    6" is the "average" snowfall around here. So for a $50 driveways:

    Our snowfall is 76", so: 76/6 = 12.66667 (I drop the .6666667)

    $50 driveway (12) = $600 seasonal price
