I'm a small new company. I use my wife sometimes and the other times I use my son-in-laws brother. He's a junior in high school and is home schooled so he is able to do some week days with me. I pay him $10 an hour.

Wow, I could set up a LOT of sprinklers for that kind of coin.
Put one every 8 ft around the whole house! I know, I know probably not enough water pressure for that.
Besides I was kidding lol. I realize they do more than sprinkle. $125 a day, hmmm, I'm not doing anything this winter...anybody need a great ground man? :)smile.gifsmile.gif

Depends on the experience.  My son whom I trained to clean roofs works with me we switch jobs from time to time.  I pay him approx 25% of the job profit.   I have used others whom didn't have the experience and paid them $10 to $12 per hour depending on the persons abilities.

If I am paying my guy $125.00 for the day you can bet I am doing at least $800.00 to $1000.00 of work that day. If we only work 4 or 5 hours I pay $100 bucks and that will still be a $400/$500 dollar day.

Ditto on what Nick said. I've got one guy that sometimes only gets $50.00- $75.00 for a few hrs if we get done early. Even then it's gotta be at least a $350- $450.00 Gross job. Most of the time I will scheduled Roof Cleaning and Pressure Cleaning jobs together to make up a real good grossing day. It's worth paying the extra couple of dollars to make a few hundred or more on the gross. after all, we are in business to make money and have tons of expenses that our helpers do not have.

Has anyone ever paid help by the roof (or similar) to motivate them (with a hit for rework, to ensure a quality job)?
