Thais don't usually work of rates, or per diem, they quote you for the work required and prices can be all over the place depending on how much they think they can get.
One important thing to remember and this is not always obvious in Thailand. You do not always get what you pay for. Example-paying a high price does not guarantee good workmanship. When you do find someone ask to see some examples of his work.
I had the exterior of my house repainted and the work is fine, the preparation wasn't, even though I bought roles of plastic sheeting it was too much work for them to put it down so now I am left with marks all over the floor.
