doubt 6 mil will last long in the hot sun. We use the heavy duty ones here. They are more expensive but we add it to the bid. Price I always look at the tarp price sq ft, plus the pitch of the roof.

$1-$2/SF depending on size, discount, etc.

I start at $0.95/SF and go up from there depending on the pitch, number of stories off the ground, time of year, etc. Having me tarp something in the winter is more per SF than what I charge in the summer to reroof....

Diallo, we are in So. Cal. and charge a minimum of .50 per sq. ft., on a RUSH basis we would increase it to somewhere between 60-85 per sq. ft. depending on pitch, size, valleys, etc.

I can't think of any company we've tarped for less than $1/SF for. Even Cyprexx gives us that.

You guys are cheap. Next time call 1-800-boardup and get their pricing/bid. This way you will get "true market pricing" for the associated liability and OSHA requirements. We have them do all the 1.5/2+ story tarps since they have their own boom trucks and provide warranties. 1.5 story is apprx $2-2.50 sf and 2 story+ appx $3.00/sf. They will pay a 20% referral and with the prices everyone are posting I make more on the referral fee than you all doing the job. Each franchise is independent so you need to negotiate.

Make sure you note on your invoice how long you are going to warranty the tarp and that it is only a temporary means of protecting the roof.

.50 sq'. I won't get my ladder out for that.
No less than $1.00 sq' and we get approved all the time. I'm pretty sure the estimating software even comes up with more than a $1.00 sq'. Common get paid what your worth and the job you are doing.
