Fall is arguably the best time do any roofing project, whether it’s the simple act of patching leaks in your roof or getting full wind damage roof repair. Planning your roof project is relatively simple, and sourcing a roofer to do the job isn’t difficult. However, you should always take an in-depth look at the roofer’s bid and estimate on your project.
Lifetime Roofing discusses what should be in your roofing estimate.
The most important thing your roofing estimate should spell out clearly is the payment terms for your project. This includes down payments, progress payments, as well as the final payment. Be on the lookout for more critical details, such as the kinds of materials they will use. Add-ons and change orders should be listed as well if they are necessary or part of your agreement.
Costs of Labor and Materials
For things like roofing repair service, your prospective roofer should be able to clarify the cost of materials and labor for your project. One thing that most homeowners forget to look for are the costs for permits that need to be pulled for you to actually start the project. Check for these so that you don’t get surprised when it’s time to pay.
Some other “small” details that need to be included are the information on the types of shingles, flashings, ventilation and underlayment that your roofer will employ. These may seem like unnecessary details on your estimate, but they are vital to the overall success of your roofing project.
