The Elements of a Proper Roofing Estimate

Your roofing estimate is a vital component of your project. A roofing estimate should be detailed, with all projected costs clearly outlined. A clear, detailed estimate speaks to a roofer’s quality, experience and integrity. In today’s post, Arry’s Roofing discusses the key elements you should look for in your roofing estimate.



Reputable contractors will provide proof of their license and insurance. This helps ensure you are working with trustworthy professionals. Considering the value of a roofing license, as well as updated liability and workers’ compensation coverage, it’s important to verify these documents in conjunction with reviewing your estimate.


A good roofing estimate should contain a detailed list of the labor and material expenses included in the project. Ideally, the total amount of the roofing job should also include the cost of permits and cleanup. This will help you create a realistic budget.


A good contractor proposal shouldn’t just indicate the overall cost of the project; it should also include a detailed breakdown of the cost of all the materials. Any brands you prefer should also be specified. Furthermore, your roofing estimate should provide general information on the type of shingles, underlayment, flashing and ventilation used in the roofing project.


Your roofing estimate should give you an idea on who’s responsible for what during the project. While you will be getting a more detailed explanation about roofer responsibilities in the contract, a good roofing company will also outline this information in the estimate.
