Roof Top Walkways


I have an opportunity to quote replacing the walkways on a commercial building roof . Looking for ideas what to quote as it is a different logistics that I am used too, We will quote demolition of the old walkways and haul way.

There will be 600 ft of walk way to replace made from 2x6 pressure treated lumber and screwed together. Existing walkway is 2 ft wide but would like to also quote 3 ft walkway or 1 meter wide.
I would like to use a professional looking quote form also.
TIA

Re: Roof Top Walkways


Then quote it for more. Quote it for how much it is going to take to do the job.

How would we know. You could have slugs and take three weeks, or high speed low drag guys and do it in three days. How fast are your guys?

I know I would charge more on a commercial job, but don't know what the rate in your area is. Maybe less, maybe more. No way for us to know.

Re: Roof Top Walkways


You would be best to check the warranty on the roofing material and see what is accepted and/or recommended.

This type of job is often best done by a roofer just for warranty liability issues.

Re: Roof Top Walkways


Thanks I am questioning if there is something we should put down to protect the roof membrane it is a tar and gravel roof. I have had to put down high density Styrofoam and roof felt when placeing non penetrating roof mounts for satellite dishes
