Getting multiple estimates from different contractors can give you an idea of how long and how much your roofing project will take. More importantly, this will help you choose the right roofer to do the job. While there is no standard for estimates, there are four key items you should look for:
1. Material And Labor Costs
Apart from labor, your roofing estimate should state the costs of all the materials to be used. This includes the roof covering, underlayment, gutters, flashing, and drip edges. Don’t forget to ask your contractor about the possible issues they may detect once they start working on your roof as this can add to your overall costs. Doing so will help you prepare the right budget.
2. Payment Terms
Your contractor should indicate the payment terms, from initial to final installment, on your estimate. They usually ask for at least 30 percent. Learn about their preferred payment methods so you can manage your finances properly. Insist on holding back at least 10 percent until the roofing project is completed to your satisfaction.
Depending on your roof’s size and material choices, your project can take a few days to finish. Having an estimated timeline will help you set your expectations, so in case of delays, you can adjust your schedule accordingly.
4. Warranty For Materials And Workmanship
Lastly, your estimate should include the materials and workmanship warranties. This gives you the assurance that you’re receiving quality products and services from your roofing contractor. In case of installation flaws, they should perform the necessary repairs at no charge.
