Does this seema tad high? I got quoted 8 dollars a foot for turnkey install of metal fascia, sophet and J channel. House is vinyl siding. Gutters would be extra. the height is on the second story, so actually taller than my 24 foot ladder can reach. Guy seemed like a straight shooter and is backed up 3 weeks out, so I assume that price is the going rate.

What kind of metal? Galvanized or aluminum? Will he be repairing any damaged framing?

If you are not going to do this yourself, I would get quite a few estimates and compare.

The time to educate yourself on a project is before you write the check, not after.

You're kidding right? It's 300 a square around here.

You might get some helpful advice on the Do it Yourself forum.

I just did my own, and I don't think $55/sq would have covered my material costs.

I pay $300 a square......if it is a clay tile roof.

OP I would get a couple estimates. $8 a l.f. for fascia and soffit isn't terrible, but that is a 2 story.
I am assuming you have landscaping and other crap to avoid as well?

sorry, 55 was labor. materials was about that amount. materials don't change much from place to place, that's why I just quoted labor.

Thats a fair price for a quality job, its about the minimun i charge. Anything over 24in soffit is 10.00 a foot and up. Remember, low price isnt everything

soffit ... no matter.

In this instance, the spelling is a non-issue.

Really?
How long has be sitting on them shingles?

At that price...I pay someone to do my roof just to watch them lose money.

EDIT:
Ok...$55 for labor, that's a fair price on a walkable rook (less than a 6/12 pitch)

$8 a lineal foot....probably isn't too far out of line today...
About 6 yrs ago (new construction - no demo/clean up) it was around $5/lnft.

Not to nitpick, but its spelled 'soffit'.
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 4:34:48 PM EST
I would charge more like 13 per foot. gutters run another 7.

Roger. Thanks for input so far, the guy is highly recommended, so at this price with this guy it looks like a green light.
