Anyone heard of this...

PLEASE SUBMIT BIDS TO BOARD ALL FIRST FLOOR WINDOWS AND DOORS.
IF WINDOWS ARE CURRENTLY BOARDED, PLEASE SUBMIT A BID TO REMOVE THE BOARDING, REGLAZE THE WINDOW THEN REBOARD.
ALL INTACT WINDOWS SHOULD BE BOARDED OVER.
PLEASE SUBMIT BIDS TO BOARD ALL DOORS AS WELL. 1 SECURITY DOOR SHOULD BE INSTALLED TO GAIN ACCESS.

Sounds like it could make some money if it's done right, only thing I see is if window sashs that have been painted shut. Don't like the $0.80 per UI though.

I do not like doing board ups(pays not good enough). And whats up with this reglazing windows, maybe 5% of the homes I do have these kind of windows. The rest have to be replaced!

IMHO boarding pays pretty well, depending on the company and how many middlemen, of course. $0.90/UI is reasonable I think. A bit of a pain to lug around plywood. I do not like reglazing, but 75% of the houses we do(or at least ones with broken windows) are easy single pane. You can get vinyl windows reglazed but way more $$.

Wow I bet 90% of the houses I do have single pane windows. I'm just not sure how you would reglaze and then reboard. Do I break the new window? Because you know they aren't going to pay unless you bolt board it properly (actually got charged back last year because the contractor used a 2x6 instead of a 2x4)

Sounds like something you'd do in a high vandal area. Is property in a high vandal area?
I think your right on the vandal area thing... an like Starbaby indicated you don't make nearly enough at the eighty cents a U.I. So it'll be the re-glazing where it'll have to be made up.

Go price your lumber, plywood and hardware.


Then tell them that you can't break even at their price and heres your bid.
Unless you need the work and want the hobby factor I wouldn't do it.

Has anyone noticed the huge increase in the price of lumber since Obama created hurricane sandy with his weathers machines? Jk. Since hurricane sandy prices of lumber out here has shot through the roof!!!!!!! We're talking almost $11 more per sheet. 2x4's almost doubled. Can my Obama EBT be used at Home Depot or just strip clubs?

We can't make money bolt boarding for assett companies. That is a good question though as to how your supposed to reglaze a window and then bolt board thru it?
