As a homeowner, it’s very important to know exactly what’s involved when it comes to a roof repair or replacement. Many people make the mistake of not carefully going over a written estimate, or worse, not even asking for one. This lapse in judgment can open up the possibility of working with a dishonest roofer that will overcharge you for their services. Here’s what information you should expect when looking at a roofing estimate.

 Roofing Estimate

An Itemized List of Materials

Too many people make the mistake of looking at the total price and little else. A good roofing estimate should also include an itemized list of ALL the materials that are going to be used, including nails, underlayment and sealants. 

A Detailed Scope of Work

Some companies won’t describe the scope of the work in their estimates. Each and every step of the roof repair or replacement project should be clearly defined. Your estimate should also explain if the roofer will be responsible for the cost of applying for permits, cleanup and removal.

A Start and Completion Date

This will give you a pretty good idea of how long the roofing project will take. A reputable roofing company should be able to complete a project on time, barring unforeseen circumstances such as inclement weather and other delays. An estimate should also include the date when the quote was created. This  may seem unimportant, but it can determine whether or not the price you were given is still accurate. If you have an estimate that’s more than a few months old, the prices may no longer be applicable, so it’s best to ask for a new one.
