And if they only do industrial do they charge more?
In my experience industrial is billed higher than commercial and residential. Obviously industrial overhead is usually going to be higher to one degree or another, more expensive equipment to consider. Like MDshunk said how much more you charge will be determined when you add up all your costs.

Like I said...I work for a union shop, we have a great group of guys, we do awesome work. Maybe that's why we're working when alot of guys are not.

Ok, here's some more. Skill level and training, I bill the industrial guys (myself included) out higher than the resi/commercial guys just cause of the higher skill level and training involved.

Plus there is other stuff like special certifications for industrial. Like MSHA (mine work), hazmat (chemical plant work), confined space and others that aren't needed in resi/commercial work. All those certs don't pay for themselves.

OSHA 30, PPE, Manlift, All Terrain Fork, Crane Rigging, Ladder Safety, Stretch and Flex, 100% Tie off and Hot work Permit are a few of the terms I've heard.

Watch out, soon you will be required to wear PPE to handle the checks to prevent paper cuts.
