After the last two snows in my area there seems to be a huge deficit in quality sidewalk work. Most places just had a straight path from the front door to the parking lot. Along with that 24 hours after the event sidewalk to pavement curbs/ transitions where still snow covered. I know in my area finding hard working, reliable workers is a big issue. I have been pondering starting a sidewalk clearing service that sub contracts with multiple large companies. (most of them do over 10 million a season) This would allow me to group alot of work on a tight route. I have talked to a couple operation managers at these various companies and they all said they were willing to give it shot. Knowing the pricing per square foot most companies are getting 50-60% more per square foot for sidewalks then parking areas/roadways. They are also charging more for ice melts and over applying due to poor training or in different employees. I know I can make more and charge less with a tight route and fulfill a need for improving quality of service. My question to you: Would you ever sub out your sidewalk work?
