How A Roofing Estimate Looks

There are many steps involved in repairing or replacing your home’s roofing system. However, before the crew and the roofing materials show up in your driveway, a vital step must occur first.

Before starting any roofing work, the homeowner and the roofing contractor must establish and agree upon an estimate of your roofing project. The estimate determines the financial parameters of the project, project schedule, date of payment, materials to be used, and much more.

If you’re planning to start a new roofing project on your home and are unsure what to look out for on your roofing estimate, carry on reading as we break it down.

Project Description

The roofing estimate should include a complete description of the roofing project. It details a step-by-step process of how the project is set to unfold, the design specifications, which parts of your roofing system are to be removed or installed, the materials to be used, etc.

Project Schedule

A set schedule for the roofing project must be determined and agreed upon by both the homeowner and the roofing company. This includes the commencement date when each step of the project will be completed and, finally, the completion date.

Budget Allocation And Payment

This details how much your project is estimated to cost. It includes how your budget will be allocated, the payment structure of the project, if payments will be split up or if one total payment of the project will be made. It also establishes a date for when these payments need to be made.

Insurance and Licensing Information

This includes your insurance information and the insurance details of the roofing company you’re working with. It also consists of any licensing information and documentation of your roofing company.

Your insurance and the roofing company’s licensing information ensure that your roofing company is legally allowed to conduct roofing work on your home. Should anything go wrong, both parties are covered.

Warranties And Guarantees

If the roofing company offers any warranties and guarantees on the roofing project, it needs to be stated and detailed in the roofing estimate.

A Means For Exit

Should either of the parties have a reason to terminate the roofing project, there needs to be an established and agreed upon termination clause that allows either party to walk away from the project without legal implications.
