Re: Hardie Soffit Fascia


Are you expanding your business to do siding as well? Siding is a whole differant animal than roofing, especially hardi products. Best advice would be to sub this part out to someone who has used and bid this product before.

Warren,

I see this quite often in commercial work. The roofers will usually put on fascia so that they can put the drip edge on and start the roof. Many times the siding company won't want to come do it until the rest of the building is ready.

As far as the "how much" question goes Is it a condo that you need a lift to get to, do have to protect public side walks, or a two story on a hill, or.......

Come on man, figure it out!

Re: Hardie Soffit Fascia


Since it's not your forte' I would tell the GC you'll do it on a time and material basis.

Can't you figure out how many days it would take and divide the footage into the cost? There is no going rate for footage anyways. It's all relative to the degree of difficulty per project. I'm not going to charge the same for 200' of fairly straight soffit work vs 200' of soffits on a house that has 5 gables. You just have to figure it out for yourself, not trying to be an ass.

+ BTW, wouldn't a Victorian have crown on the Fascia?

Re: Hardie Soffit Fascia


Why don't you ask your sub how much and then mark up accordingly?


I don't know much about contracting , but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night
