Reliable roofing companies provide homeowners with a reasonable quote for their project costs. They should be able to clearly explain factors that may add up to the expenses as they present you the estimate.
At Blue Sky Roofing, we will inspect your home to give you a more accurate estimate for your roofing project for free. Here’s what you should expect to see in a roofing estimate.
A roofing estimate should include the type of roof covering, as well as its manufacturer and color. The materials that will be included in the work should be listed. Some homeowners aren’t knowledgeable about material costs. Some contractors can go way beyond in their price markup. Don’t work with a company who charges over 30% markup for materials.
Before settling on a contractor for your roof installation, consult a local roofing supplier to determine the market price of the materials in your area. Before paying a visit, know the type of shingles you’ll use and the amount your roof requires.
Expect to see the scope of work to be done on the roofing estimate. This usually includes the removal or replacement of your existing roof, flashing work and ventilation work. Make sure that the estimate states who will be responsible for any damage done while completing the job.
You should be presented with the installation method, estimated starting and completion dates, and available payment options. It should state who will handle the disposal of the old roofing materials as well as the construction waste. There should also be the length of the warranties and their coverage.
