Are you having trouble narrowing down the list of possible roofers to hire for your next home improvement project? Narrowing down the list by checking each roofer’s estimates is a good idea, but what exactly should you be looking for and comparing? Here’s a quick rundown of the most important information that should be in any roofing estimate.
Detailed Price Estimates
Simply looking at the total estimate is rarely a good idea because you’re risking getting a contract that requires you to pay unexpected charges. Reduce your choices to options that include a detailed breakdown of where your money will go; labor, cost of materials, cleanup costs and possible payment for securing building permits should all be there. Sticking to detailed roofing estimates also helps you prepare your budget ahead of time.
Start and End Schedules
Roofing projects can cause a lot of disruption to your daily routine so you need to find out how long you’ll have to put up with the project. Furthermore, some homeowners are worried about whether the roofer will finish their work on time or if they have to ask for an extension. An estimate with a comprehensive outline of the project’s start and end dates will not only provide you time to adjust, but also give an idea of how much of the project should be done at any point along the expected time frame.
Reputable roofing companies will provide a complete list of possible payment options in their estimates. This way, you can prepare multiple payment options ahead of time should something happen with your primary mode of payment. You should also check the payment schedule and number of installments so you can pick an offer that will best suit your budget.
Roofing involves a lot of cash so you need to check if you’re hiring a roofing company that you can actually trust. You need to look for two types of licenses in particular: a roofing license (which proves that the roofer meets local quality standards) and a business license (which proves that the contractor has a local address and is allowed to operate a legitimate business). Limit your choices to estimates that offer both types of licenses to avoid falling prey to scammers and to ensure the quality of workmanship.
