Confidence In Your Bids & Bottom Line.
What Should Be Included on Your Roof Estimate?
Knowing the basics is just the start. You also need to know why these should be included in your roof estimate? You don’t want to have all of this time and money invested and not know why. Knowing this can help you figure out which roofing companies are legitimate and which roofing companies are trying to swindle you.
- Payment Information. Every roof estimate should explain which parties are responsible for specific portions of the roof project. If specific aspects of the roofing project will be outsourced to other companies, these parties and responsibilities must be identified in detail within the estimate. Every last detail of the payment terms should be explained in-depth including information about down payments, progress payments, end payment, and payment methods. Furthermore, the estimate should include a provision for you to hold back the final payment until you are completely satisfied with the job.
- Approximated Timeline. The estimate must spell out the project’s start date and completion date. This can change if more damage is found once the roof repair starts.
- Costs. The roof estimate should include the cost of materials and labor. Even the cost for the pulling of permits should be noted. If the project will result in any sort of debris or a mess of any other sort, the estimate should explain if the roofing company is responsible for the cleanup and removal.
- Roof Estimate Materials. The best roofers are willing to explain the type of shingles, flashing, underlayment and ventilation that will be used in the project in extensive detail within the estimate. This information should be highly specific. For example, it should explain the thickness of the underlayment, the locations of the flashing, the type of sealant for areas that mandate waterproofing (nail holes, flashing etc.) and the sizes of the fasteners and nails that will be used for the project. Even the brand of the products that will be used for your roofing project should be noted.
How Many Estimates Do You Need?
Many people say you shouldn’t undertake any type of home improvement project until you’ve gathered three estimates. The reality is that you should get as many estimates as you need to make an informed decision you can feel good about.
When you talk to roofing companies, ask how long they’ve been in business, what kind of experience they have and how much your project will cost. You can usually judge the quality of their customer service based on their answers. Instead of limiting yourself to a set number of estimates, consider roofing companies until you find the best one for your project.
