Mine's $15.52 per $100 payroll. No incidents or claims.

BTW, my insurance guy says roofers pay $200 for every $100 of payroll!

Last I heard roofers typically pay 50 cents on the dollar here in SoCal. One lady I worked for had an employee killed on the job and her rate was $1 for every dollar she paid!

I pay 5.43%. I had to join the Home Builders Association to get this rate, but it saves me much more than the $500 for the membership.

I used to own a construction company and paid 33% for roofing and 20% for carpentry at that time.

about 10.5% in florida and that's down from 13% a year ago for electrical field. Now days it's not uncommon to see 15 immagrants working on one roof. Across the street this happen on a 2200 square roof. Done in 5 hours and would imagine CASH to everyone.
Roofers are highest here also.
