Estimate for 1/2 roofs

I am finding the same thing, they only want half the roof done I tell them I wont even show up for less than $325.00. and most roofs here that I have quoted are about 4000sq ft, which is around 600 so if I do just the front like they want I cant give them a  guarantee and the cost is 400..  We are new to this trade and want to get our feet wet so we do it
Later when we are so busy we cant keep up I will probley push the whole roof thingy.. But I will take what I can get for now..

Im with you there. Maybe some of the more experienced guys can chime in. Ive requiring that they at least let me do everything that can be seen from the road. That way people dont look at it later i think "dang he didnt do a very good job"

Most folks Ive talked to are mainly just worried about curb appeal...

and hey 300 may not be 600 but it beats 0!


BELIEVE ME when I say,

"All of you, here RIGHT NOW on this forum, are SETTING THE TONE for the ENTIRE industry"

How you ALL handle yourselves and your bidding will DETERMINE how the CUSTOMER BASE will respond to you in there FUTURE.

By lowering yourself to the level of cutthroat marketing and letting your competitors and the homeowner/ property owner decide your fate by them doing the deciding for you, you lose the EXPERT credentials that you came to the bid or estimate with and lower your standards to the mindset of "whatever will work and just get by or Do the BARE minimum"

This will have a RIPPLE effect in EACH of your individual areas and lower the QUALITY and STANDARDS of our ENTIRE INDUSTRY, cheapening our PRESENT AND FUTURE WORK.

PLEASE, all of you, hold to and STICK to your ( roof cleaning ) guns and raise the STANDARDS, do not lower them.

Most of you here WE taught HOW to do this a business to support your families and provide for you and countless others to have a better future for yourselves through Professional Roof Cleaning.

By doing 1/2 roofs and by buying the cheapest tanks and equipment and trucks, etc. you make and give our industry a undeserved black eye by lowering yourselves to SUB - STANDARDS.

That is what doing 1/2 roofs will do. Respect our craft and trade and work to the Professional Standards we all and the customer deserve to receive.

Thank you all for doing your BEst to be THE BEST Roof Cleaners you can be.
