I install shingles on a daily basis and get $300-450 per square average on one layer tear offs. Those would be 3-9/12 roofs. On 10-12/12’s it would be closer to $500 per square.
$300ish would be on walkers and $400 would start on 7/12’s. There has been a few 7/12 tear offs that were around $450 though. Did a couple one layer 10/12 tear offs last year that earned me $550 per square. One was a 30 year laminate tear off the other was a 25 year 3 tab tear off, both had Landmark Premiums installed, free upgrade, both had great insurance.
Don’t really have to work on the roof but since I was born into a roofing family it’s all I know and I really like roofing.
The average house were I live is $235K and that’s a starter home. In the town my wife works in the average home is $800K, it’s less than 10 minutes away. When we have kids we would like to live there so they can go to the best school(s) in the state. The other option would be the private school up the street, $10K per year. I don’t like it here but my wife likes the acre lot.
95+% of my work is from referrals. The leads keep comming.
