When replacing your commercial roof, always scrutinize the roofing estimate your contractor provides you. This is particularly important when doing commercial roofing projects, as your property’s roofing system has unique needs. In this post, Lifetime Roofing Utah lists the four things that should be in your commercial roofing estimate.
1. A Timeline of the Project
The first thing you need to check is if the roofing estimate has a timeline. This means an exact start and finish date. While you can expect delays to happen, your roofing contractor still needs to give you a schedule of their forecast. Knowing the start and end dates also helps you prioritize.
2. Due Dates for the Payment
Similarly, your roofing estimate needs to have payment due dates and details on what kind of payments they accept. This is an important detail, especially if you’re planning to file a roof damage insurance claim on your commercial property.
3. Cost of Labor
Your commercial roof estimate should also have specific details on the cost of labor for the entire project. This is a necessary detail if your contractor is planning to use subcontractors to work on specific elements of your roofing system. Similarly, your estimate should have an estimated cost of removing the old roof (if necessary) and any rental equipment they’ll use.
4. Details on the kind of Roofing
Finally, your prospective roofer should spell out the details on the commercial roofing material they’ll use. This may range from modified bitumen to EPDM roofing. Additionally, you’ll also want to see details on the underlayment, or the protective layer under the roofing membrane.
