Temporary Roof Cover Cost
Construction Item Description
Roofing estimating unit cost for a temporary roof cover of plastic sheeting material. This is designed for short-term covering of unfinished work during a construction project.
One square (100 square feet).
We figure that a skilled worker with some unskilled help can cover about 5 squares per hour.
Plastic sheeting, plus wood furring strips and fasteners.
NOTE-- You might want to substiture felt underlayment for a longer-lasting temporary cover. You can also use tarps for short-term covering at a lower cost, though there is some risk that they'll blow off in high winds.
Calculated roof area from the Roofing Dimensions screen.
