[quote=“tmish969”]All right roofers help me out. I have always wondered these questions about square per hour. I was on a roofing crew in Ohio from age 18-23 and then moved to SC and was looking for a roofing job. Could not get one when I said that I was just a roofer. They would ask how many square per hour do you lay. I would think as a youngster how in the hell can I know that when there are so many variables. What about cutting edges and the ridge cap? What about the question of using a nail gun or hammer? what about felt paper? (I never did find a roofing job in SC and now I am 30 yrs old) Well, today I busted my tail as hard as ever to do a little roof job and needed to get it done by a certain time. had to tear off shingles and felt and redo it all. I had to carry 4.5 square up the ladder myself no helper for the whole job, just me. 8 am to 3:30pm no breaks capped it off and all detail work…Is this a fast roofing pace?
I picked up right where I left off from that good old roofing crew that trained me! Back hurts though![/quote]
Being fast isn’t the most important.You can see all kinds of fast on Youtube.LMAO,looking at the “Fast” guys on Youtube makes me appreciate being “Slow” by those posers on Youtube.If your watching their videos humor yourself and pause those videos,then start,pause,start,pause etc.Look at where the nails are placed.That’s funny.
If you worked your ass off,provided a quality installation,respected the customers property,and met your deadline that is what you should be concerned about.
