Long story short we redid our roof from the wood up. Ripped off two layers of shingles its HUGE mess!! lol Well DF works all week/day long so I hired a teen boy (17) to clean it up. Paying him a $100 to do it. DF thinks its to much, I thought it was just right or to little. Its a mess! What do you all think?

  • ya, that's probably not enough..if a company came out there and did it, they should clean it up...if you guys did it, then the cleanup should cost hundreds...i would imagine you needed a large dumpster?? I dont think that's much at all...that's not easy work.

  • i think it might be a little much..
    but i have no idea how much work the boy really did.
    if you think 100 was right for the job then stand your ground =))

  • Did your husband help him? Did your husband provide the truck to haul off the trash? Who dumped the trash?
    Id say, you paid him a fair amout if it was truly an honest hard days work.
    I once hired a friends son, to do yard work. He wanted money for prom. He showed up late.. id already done a lot my self, etc.
    So, I only paid him half of what id orgainally considered paying him. I cleaned the yard, he was there in time to mow, sit on my riding mower...

  • I don't know- I kind of think that was too much, but if it was a good lot of work, and he worked hard, then I think it's ok.
