David North

David’s prices will often be higher than other people in his field. That most often reflects the fact that David pays the full freight in taxes and insurances, while many, perhaps most, of his competitors operate a good portion of their work in the “informal” or “black market” economy, e.g. green cash jobs, cash payment to helpers to avoid workers comp, liability insurance,social security, and unemployment payments, which total to somewhere between 50 and 60% of wages. So David pays a journeyman $25 per hour wages(remember that roofers cannot work but about 10 months per year), which translates into costs of about $40 per hour, not including overhead like trucks, gas, and warehousing.
