Thank you for your review, we value your comments and your patronage.
Regarding your eavestroughing, I understand that you are looking at the cost of material only. Which can be very deceiving as there are many other costs associated with this job that you may not be taking into consideration.
For instance, our Estimator puts time into matching the colour, measuring the troughs and writing up the contract.
Our project manager then orders the material and notifies the customer.
Then there is a pick up from the supplier and delivery of the product to the job.
Also there is the labor involved for the removal of the old downspouts, installing new downspouts, elbows and strapping, cutting holes in the fence, the clean up and hauling the old downspouts to the recycler. We also have to write safety hazard reports for each individual job.
In addition add cost for insurance, workman's compensation, fuel and incidentals. The breakdown $140.00 material $75 to pick up and deliver, $75 to dispose and haul away $75 for labour $65 for insurance, workman's compensation & incidentals and $20 GST.
So the actual cost to Sunik to do this job was $430.00.
As you can see our mutually agreed price was very fair. Our profit on this job was approximately 12% or $65.00.
We will be out before week’s end to remove our sign and remove the straps that we missed.
Once again thank you for choosing Sunik Roofing and giving us a chance to explain the costs in this forum.
