i am just curious what the average price per square is.. i have a roofer who can do a quality job with lead pipe jacks and 30yr shingle with 30lb felt for $245-$250..not including steep and high. he does a 20yr for $215-$220. i have seen people charging $159 for 20yr and $179 for 30yr.. i also figured out that exactimate and insurance will figure a roof for over $300 a square. please give me your thoughts or input on this subject. why such a big price difference? i am in the houston area. i really enjoy reading everyones threads and responses.. thanks

There is a minimum post count for posting in the P&R section, I think it should be doubled for how much questions in addition to learning the secret handshake. Then all they would have to do is post the threads in an undisclosed rotating location.

You haven't really enjoyed reading very many posts or you'd know better.

For good info on how to set your rate try searching Michael Stone, Jerrald Hayes or tree fiddy.

Good Luck
Dave

300 bucks a square? ARE YOU HIGH? more like $300 PER shingle, that isn't an easy job...:whistling




Disclaimer:

This is just an estimate, exact prices are not to be given until the completion of the job, all sales are final! Please refer to manufacturer for any warranty information. All jobs will be completed this year. If you have any questions please do NOT contact the roofing company as they are extremely busy.
If you need immediate assistance please refer to the instruction form on the packaging that your shingles came in.

Thanks for your business! Have a nice day!:thumbsup:

Invoice Subtotal:

Tax:
$204.31
Invoice Total:
$3,559.54
Amount Paid:
($3,559.54)
Invoice Balance:
$0.00

Now granted I have a lot of I&W on it. There were two lower pitched roofs the HO wanted covered with it. But even if you take those out of the equation.$3355.23-595.20=2760.03+6%(tax)$165.60=$2925.63.
Now lets forget the $50 coupon I used, so we have $2975.63.
On 23 square. $2975.63/23=$127.20 per square. Add in a dumpster and permit. I hope you're not paying any employees to work this job by the hour, because if you are at 179 you just went into the red.

it depends, normally around 300 a square, labor and material, sometimes it's 350 per sq. or sometimes i do the old material x 2 or 2.5 or 3 if its a steep one.... if it's a nail over it's 300 providing that it isn't steep :thumbsup:

It depends on where you live. Where i live example 23 square 30 year landmark somewhere between 7,500-8,000. This would be getting the job down rite. Ice and water proper venting etc.

The job that material invoice is for, sold for 8K. Owners are very happy.
