A roofing estimate is one of the best bases when hiring a reliable contractor. More than just saying how much everything would cost, good estimates speak of roofer quality, experience, and integrity.
Here’s what your roofing estimate should include:
Materials in Detail
A good contractor proposal shouldn’t just say the overall cost of the project. It should show the materials that would be a part of the job, and the breakdown of their prices. It should provide general information on the type of shingle, underlayment, flashing, and ventilation your replacement roof would be made of.
As an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred roofing contractor, we spell out the particular components you’d have, especially if you’d choose the Total Protection Roofing System. At Tittle Brothers Construction, we recommend this complete roofing system because it seals vulnerable areas, defends against the elements, and breathes out excessive moisture. We want to give you a deeper sense of the performance you’d expect by shedding light on all roof parts.
A good estimate should already give you an idea on who’s responsible for what. Although you’d get a more detailed explanation about roofer responsibilities in the contract, a good roofing company would give you a general idea how far it would go for you.
Cost of Labor and Products
Good estimates contain the list of labor and material expenses and the total amount the roofing job costs. Ideally, it should include the cost for permit and cleanup too.
Proof of License and Insurance
Reputable contractors proactively provide proof of license and insurance to gain your trust from the start. Considering the value of legitimate roofing license as well as adequate liability and workers’ compensation coverage, it’s helpful and convenient to have these pieces of information for verification beforehand to do your homework easily.
