    Weber spec and pricing

    Pricing a job up to mono a hotel and Weber have come out and specified 30mm pral m. This is double the thickness I usually do and in my mind is gonna take twice the effort to apply. 1. Should I be charging double? ( seems stupidly pricey) 2. Would you still go wet on wet (on wet again)?
