Time and material repairs are one of the most popular kinds of repair pricing methods in the construction industry and especially in roofing. Roof repairing requires care and attention for it to be perfect. Damage to your roof can be minor or major, which determines the T & M rate.
What is the difference between T & M and fixed Price?
Fixed price repairs have a standalone cost that covers all the work during the repairs and any equipment used. It is definitive in nature, and all that the price covers is stated. Usually, you have the option of paying the fixed price in installments after clearing the down payment.
For T & M, there is no fixed price before the work begins. The number of hours spent on your repairs, which is the labor per hour and the cost of all input, will determine what you will pay finally.
What is T & M
T & M is a commonly used jargon in the construction sector. The billing structure specifies payment that you make for received services per hour in addition to the cost of used materials. The cost of labor per hour rates differs from service to service depending on things like the general rates in the market or industry for particular skills.
The cost of material includes the actual cost of the material, and in some cases, it may include the shipping fees to your place and fees related to the handling of the material.
