Things to Look for in Your Roof Replacement Estimate

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. Read on as Arry’s Roofing Services, one of the top roofing contractors in the local area, explains what you need to know about a roof replacement estimate.

Things to Look for in Your Roof Replacement Estimate

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 needs to detail the cost of removing your current roof, the cost of hauling away debris, and if necessary and the cost of renting a dumpster and heavy equipment. 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.
