Our prices have remained the same for the past four years. After reviewing our 2010 season, it has become obvious that we need to increase the price slightly to cover the ever increasing operating and materials costs.
We were anticipating a 10% increase across the board but metal roofing came down slightly this fall which enabled us to drop the increase to 6%. (Metal roofing is still approximately 50% more than it was in 2006) This increase will barely cover the increased cost of operations and definitely doesn't include any additional profit.
Not only has material increased in the past four years; workers compensation, liablility insurance, fuel and equipment costs have also gone up which really leaves us no choice in the matter.
The price increase will become effective January 1, 2011. Naturally, all projects contracted before that time will be locked in to the lower price.
We still have start dates available this winter and several available in the summer season.
I don't want to do business with those who don't make a profit, because they can't give the best service.
