Sub-rate


#1

im needing to sub out a job and am wondering what a deccent rate would be -its a 10-12 pitch three layer asphalt tear off ,resheet 30lb in the valleys and bottom edge ,15 lb the rest and bang on 30 year laminate it’s about 30 sq with a dormer on each side and a couple of bay window roofs on the side


#2

i’d pay $2500-2700


#3

man yall doin it cheap Agape.
sorry to here that.

eya .
gweedo.

The median home cost in Tulsa is $147,500.

Compared to the rest of the country, Tulsa’s cost of living is 21.93% Lower than the U.S. average.

gas is $1.75 today.

I pay $40 on, and $10 per layer off. more for steep, depending on pitch. usually over 7 is $5 per pitch increase up to 12, beyond 12, we negotiate depending on each house.


#5

$200\sq min. pm me if you need someone.


#6

I think I would tear one layer of 15 lb. felt fastened with staples, not nails for 10 bucks a square.


#7

well, personally, i wouldnt tear off anything for $10 a square. not $20 either. hell, probably not for $50.

but if there are 2 crews a day that come in and offer to do it for that or less, why wouldnt i pay it?


#8

Yea no doubt…
I was thinking more like $70 per layer.


#9

$70/sq per layer?

for just tear off?

you cant be serious. who pays those prices?

Every person who hires me with a steep azz roof.
That is a reasonable rate for the scope of work described.

On the job described my pricing formula comes out to $330/sq for labor.

Contractor pays for material and debris removal.

I will do a good job, the customer will be extremely satisfied, and this job will never come back on the contractor.
You are paying for peace of mind.


#11

and debris removal?

man, you guys must not have any competition, or need much work there.

i can sell that job to a customer for $350 a square all day long, materials and labor, and make plenty of profit.

seriously.

$10,500 for shingles, on and off. add in vents, flashings, tax… i’d sell that job for $12,000. in fact, i do it all the time.


#12

I can sell that job for $12k also, very easily.
Why would I want to?
I would be working for wages…

The whole thing has to be jacked and scaffolded, and it has 3 layers.
If it needs redeck and has 3 layers, there is a good chance that one of those layers is cedar.
Or perhaps it is really 4 layers…

A complete reroof properly done that has 3 layers and is steep frequently exceeds $500/sq.

You can bet that there are wood work issues also, more than just the redeck.

Prices vary from region to region, a new roof generally costs more in northern regions than southern regions.

Prices are generally lower in regions that have a lot of cheap labor available also.

This is why it is pointless to ask for a price quote on the internet.

I can barely get 50+ asquare it’s crazy.

I didnt realize it was a re-sheet so my price would also be $300-350\sq.if it was my own job it would be 450-650\sq.


#16

ah… “resheet” means “redeck”… i skimmed right past that.

decking

sheathing

ive never heard “sheet” before.

sorry… yea, add $135/sq to my retail price. or $50/sq to my labor.


#17

sheet,…slang for sheathing,decking,plywood…etc.


#18

i’d get about 4500 being an expensive sub around here.


#19

Around here I qould quote that job for 16000 just so I dont get it. I did do that though once, everyone bid one like that for 10000 and I came in at a little over at 15 but the guy still went with us. Guess I shouldve tried to charge more.


#20

I think he wants a price for a real life sub-crew.

My guess at fairness… $100-$120 labor per sq, $20/sheet. Not what I would do it for…
