[quote=“RanchHandRoofing”]Minimum $ 200.00
Additional for 7:12 (+ more for 9:12 / 10:12, etc. Each pitch number = more $$ due to the danger & time to complete).
Additional for 2 story (+ more for 3 story, etc).
Additional for “after hours” or emergency (i.e. last minute where you have to drop one thing to pick up another).
Additional for Sunday
I would collect this from the customer where possible, however it is also a good idea to get the customer to sign a contingency & you will accept payment once the project has been adjusted. As a slight bonus, any tarping work goes directly towards the total value of the claim, i.e. deductible, etc. So if a customer has a 1,000.00 deductible, a 300.00 temporary tarp job just got them down to $ 700.00.
Important: Do NOT throw away any of the lost / blown off shingles. The insurance co. often wants to see them.
Sidebar: I did a solo tarping on this house on Sunday.
It was a windy day & the tarping was a bit of a headache… got all my tools down then went up to the ridge cap again to look @ something & the wind knocked my ladder off. I hung out there for 15 minutes before a neighbor came home & reset the ladder. I’m too old to be jumping from a roof, even if it is only a 1 story (I checked out the fences & they were too far down from the eave for me to safely consider a transition).
Also, where these shingles had blown up on the slope, there was a “2 tone” appearance to the felt where you could see the sun fading. Pics of this or @ least the appearance of this will prove to the insurer that the shingles may have been flipped up on the slope for some time.
Bungee straps help on windy days.Are my eyes fooling me or has that roof been repaired before/(Upper right above the chimney?) And that damper vent looks to have been installed wrong too.
