Walkable roof like that I would say 35 to 40 Gallons of Juice and 1.5 to 2 hours on site.

Nice job by the way.

I don't know where you live which would give me a better idea of what it costs you for love. mine just went down to .92 cents per gal. I know guys up north who pay tons more than that.

Ok I'll go with 18gals of mix...Not a steep Shingle Roof and kinda small.

I'll big time go out on a limb here and say it cost you $ 12.00 in materials.
Final answer!!!

I have an unfair advantage, I've talked to Thomas on the phone!

So I know what he is paying for chemicals, LOL!

I'll also guess a 40 gallon mix.

Reapplying more than once because of the severe neglect and age.

15 gallons 12.5% bleach $22.50

25 gallons water

5 lbs. TSP $4.00

2 quarts 70% alcohol $4.00

32 ounces of dawn $4.00
_______________

TOTAL PRICE $34.50

I'm gonna guess 35 gallons and $30.00.

If that is wrong.... Change my guess to 40 gallons and $34.51 because Mike has inside info! wink

Kid - You definitely need to shop that TSP price. I was paying close to that when I first started, but now I am getting 50lbs for $36.00 delivered.

I am going to add the price of fuel and a helper @ $10 per hr and say it cost $35 on top of the $35 these guys are guessing. So $70 on a $400 to $450 roof ??

How about your insurance, maintenece and misc. items like trash bags, divided by the amount of work you do in a year...??? add $10? or so

I'm gonna have to rethink my answer. I was just figuring in the Love juice and not micro managing.

What do we charge per sq. ft.  Is that the basis for pricing.  I have been using .20  however I'm not sure.  I have a minimum charge of $400.00

the color of shingle appears to be "shasta White" which requires alot more rinsing, which equals time, which equals $$

when calculating commissions to salespeople for roof jobs we take the consumption of gallons X $2.50 , and that is the "cost" in materials.
EX. 40gal @ $2.5 = $100.00
That covers marketing, insurance, gas, etc.
That may seem high, but we get more $$ up here in Northern VA. $500-750 / roof

All right guys, I will let the cat out of the bag.this job was a slow going job. the H/O reminded me several times he  had 10 year old Shrubs and under no circumstances they were to be killed!! he watched me like a hawk. i had a water boy run water all day. the roof was in bad shape. i had to hit it 2 times. no rinse ,my batches were 40gal batches . my mix was 15sh,25water, 7tsp,64ipa,56dawn.my water boy made $75 bones. my mix cost me .91 cents to make, overhead was around 15%.total 175.00  i underestimated this roof guys. at first i was not going to post this because i was a little embarassed.but on the other hand i wanted to show other green horns like myself not to cut your self short and pay attention to details. 


Looks like MR. T is the winner. congratulations B.A ,YOUR  THE MAN !!!! I Will post another one   next week. keep your eyes open for THE PRICE IS RIGHT!!! and good luck...

confuseYour question that started the post made it sound like how much chemical you used and how much you spend on the mix thats why must of us answered with gals. and cost of the love, its hard to see where you used 80 gals on that small roof , was the SH weak ? or maybe you should have let it dwell a little longer ? overall it was a fun post LOL

"i would like to thank my mom.....and Dad" J/K That was fun. I thought you were talking about straight chem cost....I was just breaking down our cost. i do have a couple of questions though, if you don't mind my asking....how much did you charge? And, have you ever tried rinsing after 1st application, especially on the "Shasta White"?

Alright Mike Sullivan....... I thought you had some good inside info! That's the last time I try to copy off of you! bleh

Thomas, I think that may have been the 110 Year Old Senile Bob Barker version of The Price is Right.  smile

It was still fun. Just need to have a few specific things to guess next time......

sorry about the confusion guys,next time  i will be more Precise . i have another roof Monday  i will try to post it. it has every thing, lots of MOSS, Algae ,Lichen  the roof is 25 TO 30 Years old .i Will be  going  at it with BOTH Barrels!!!  

OK to answer BA questions :the job was $350.00 the reason i did not rinse is there were NO GUTTERS. i am finding out that it is risky business rinsing with out gutters.after the first coat i had some spotS were i did'ent get good penetration. i also am finding out that you can tell in 15 to 20 min were you missed with the love ..BLACK SPOTS will Apier.also were the algae  is harvest.in this case it was easier  to mix enough batch than mix 20 gal of tough up    So i NUKED IT AGAIN, it was a SURE THING...
