Re: Labor Time


I was thrust into that position. And I am now in the insulation business though I do not have the experience. Therefore my profile is accurate.

Guess you are just a bunch of pricks.

I am so glad I did not stay in the construction industry.

You are angry at others because you have no idea how to do your business, nice.

Just for your information, you think you are in the insulation business the same way I think I am in the brain surgery business. If you were you would know the answer to your own question.

Re: Labor Time


Professionals should be willing to help others learn. From what I am seeing most here are just looking to belittle another person.

I am not angry with anyone. I am just tired of dealing with jerks. I have my idea of what things should be. I am looking for other opinions to the question.

Re: Labor Time


We get a lot of guys that come here and want free help to price their jobs. You say you have an idea what things should be. Maybe wording you question differently would work better.

"Hi guys, I just was thrown into a new position running the re-insulation if crawls after our pest division gets done with their end. I think it will take approx 2 men x amount of hours to insulate x amount of sq ft if R-30 unfaced fiberglass. Do you think this sounds about right? Crawls are 4' deep with good access. Thanks!"

Might get a little more feedback that way. Imho.

Re: Labor Time


Okay guys,

As I stated I was thrown into a position of helping our insulation LOB (line of business) be more profitable. At this time it seems to me based on RS Means data and others that placing batt insulation in a crawl space should take about 90 mins per 100 SF. What are you seeing? Average crawl depth in my area of the country is 18 - 24" below floor joists.

Thank you for your help. I am new to this aspect and trying my best.

If you can get through the FNG part you might be around here awhile. There's a lot of people only come here when there ass is falling off, then never to hear from them again. Welcome by the way!

Re: Labor Time


From my experience insulting people isn't the best way to get them to help you
