I would bid to cut back the tree per cubic yard first, from the pics it looks like their in the way of putting on the roof trap, and laying in the gutters. make the pics reflect it with the angles you take them from.

Another excuse i would use is the gutters full of debris and has to be cleaned in order to install tarp properly so water doesn't run under tarp because of clogged gutters filling up with water. 1.00 per sq ft

if i have to remove old wood and old tarp its a 1.25 per sq ft
if its a clean roof and just a straight install of tarp i charge 1.00 per sq ft. these are my basic prices across the board with all my clients. Steeper roofs cost more of course.

But you cant rap around the gutters with the tarp so you will have to end the tarp at the edge of roof or clean the gutters and tuck the tarp into the gutters. And maybe put some roofing tacks to hold tarp into the inside of the gutter. It comes down to how long will you have this property in your line up, and personal preference.

But of course my balls are not made of steel like yours so my prices are a some what lower compared to yours.

It was for a realtor. I had this property with 3 different nationals and none of them approved ANY of our bids. The realtor made it clear she just wanted to tarp the roof and cut access paths to the front and rear door.

I charged $300.00 for the access paths.

Charged $2,350.00 to tarp the roof.

got an additional $1,200.00 to trash it out.

Removed moldy drywall for $2,300.00

Did a sales clean for $500.00

You don't have to buy it they did. In 3-4 days when I get my check I can scan it in for ya.

The point of this thread is that too many guys don't even ask for the big bucks. Like I had previously stated we had this property with 3 different Nationals NONE of our bids ever got approved. We have been visiting this god forsaken death trap for years. Even after we get paid for this job we may actually be in the red if you factor in the number of trips we've made.

I bid this job high on purpose. I didn't want the job. We are busy and this property has been a thorn in my side for years and won't stop coming back from the dead. I put the price on the moon and they took it.

I would price replacing this roof at about $7,300.00 plus another $1,000.00 for bad decking and consumables. Place my 20% markup on it and be at $9,960.00 just under 10k.

I'm not a roofer so if i don't get it no worries. If I do get it i sub it out and still make money.

That is the point I'm here to make money. We got lucky on this one but there are still those rare occasions out there.
