Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


What is everyone getting per sq/ sq ft. for installing a white, mechanically fastened, single ply membrane with 1 1/4" insulation on residential applications and commercial applications?

Every job is different. Your question is waaaaaaay too vague.

Re: Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


Depends on tons of variables,

Last residential job came in at about $550 a square all in.

Prevailing Wage commercial was near $700

Had to give it away on bid work a few times near the $300-350 mark for junk.,

Re: Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


Yeah, I was a little vague yes...but thanks for the info. I am finding down here in Florida, other contractors are LOW BALLING jobs like crazy! I know it will be just a matter of time before they are out of business because they will never make a profit to stay alive it just pisses me off! I used to get $500-$600 a sq and now its more like $300-$350 just to compete! What ever happened to paying for quailty and not price??? I could always sell on my companies reputation and the price was never an object.

Oh well, only the strong will survive...I am not going anywhere. I might sell half as many as the low-ballers but, I keep my profit margin the same as I did years ago which keeps me alive paying the bills which they probably aren't....

Re: Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


I am talking TPO. I also offer a Lifetime Warranty on all my TPO roofing systems. I have never had to replace one ever and if one needs a quick leak fix, its usually one of my installers problem so its all on them to fix. Acts of God are not covered under my lifetime warranty but when customers hear lifetime warranty...it sells itself.

Also, lifetime warranty you might think is for "life" but attorneys here in Florida state with a formula, lifetime really only means 7 years but, I will always take care of a customer to keep the referals rollin' in.

Re: Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


Just put a bid in today with a tear off, 2 layers iso, 60 MA tpo, $650. I don't price by the square, but when it's all said and done that's what it was.

However talking about pricing by the square is just too vague. I mean after all, my $650 number abo doesn't include walls or waste. I am going to buy 50 squares, but the field is only 38 squares so I based my final value on the field. Had I included the walls the cost per square would be much much less. Vague is vague, that's why nobody should ever price their job based on what others are charging.

Re: Single-Ply Membrane Pricing...


Here is a recent job quoted and then what I "used" to get....

Single-ply membrane .45mil, 1 1/4" insulation board.

1231 sq ft mobile home with org. 12 year old shingle. No tear off.

1231 x 3.75= 5116.25 (with $500 override added in.)
Materials= 1464.89
Sales Comm. 711
Installers pay 615.5

Net 2324.86


What I used to get....

1231 x 4.55= 6101.05 (with $500 override added in)
Materials= 1464.89
Sales Comm. 860
Installers pay 711

Net 3839.16

Other costs are involved like permits, WC but I was just trying to show how the market in FL has changed because guys are "low balling" and only hurting temselves in the process. I put this post up to see if anyone else is running into the same problem.

Funny how this guy sells lifetime warranties then without even an indented paragraph basically says his warranty is a gimmicky scam. But oh well, the referrals keep cummin!
