Getting an estimate is an important step in planning your roof replacement project. A proper roof replacement estimate needs to be detailed and thorough so you can make well-informed decisions regarding your project.
REQUIRED INFORMATION IN YOUR ROOF ESTIMATE
Your roof replacement estimate needs to detail the type of roofing material being used, the manufacturer, the color, and the estimated cost of all materials. The estimate also needs to have an approximate timeline for the roof replacement, a warranty for the project, and the payment due dates and accepted methods of payment.
QUESTIONS TO ASK A PROSPECTIVE CONTRACTOR
When reviewing estimates from prospective roofers, make sure to ask plenty of questions. A professional roofing company should be able to provide you with all the necessary information about your project. For example, you need to ask about the contractor’s qualifications. Ask if they are licensed, insured, and certified. Cross-reference their qualifications to see if they are accurate. Ask for specific details on payments and payment schedules.
It also helps if you ask the contractor about their business experience. Ask how many years they’ve been in business and ask to see references and examples of previous roof installations. Make sure to ask about the contractor’s safety record and standards as well. Ask about possible roadblocks such as property damage. At this early stage, you need to know who will be responsible for the cost of damage so everyone is on the same page from the get-go.
