Hey guys in the process of hiring a Gutter installer. I am just wondering what is a good starting rate to pay him. I want to pay piece work. and I am from Texas. Just wondering what others are paying their employees thanks.

Suprised this was not asked at CT forum.

Wages are very much a regional thing so what I pay may be too much for what you'd pay in Texas.

Paying piece work is totally lega, but carries with it a whole set of IRS rules. Hours must still be tracked and over time must still be paid. IMO better to pay hourly with a bonus tied into the piece work and/or on time/early completion.

Will this person work with you as a helper or unattended as a lead man?

How many workers on the crew?

How many feet would you xpect him to install in a day?

All of these factors would weigh in on my decision of what to pay.

Yes, this is the perfect question to ask on ContractorTalk :no:

Oh,I think he missed the dripping sarcasm---I hope they don't get nasty.

It's nice to hear that someone is looking for help.---Mike---
