Remember that roofing jobs aren’t cheap, which is why it’s important to work with a qualified roofing professional to maximize your investment. Working with a credible roofing company also allows you to secure accurate estimates. However, what are the things that should be included in a roofing estimate? In this post, ImproveIT! of Atlanta, the leading roof replacement contractor, shares the things you should expect in a roofing estimate.
Project Timeline and Basic Company Info
All kinds of roofing estimates should include basic information about your prospective roofing company. This includes their contact information, as well as an outline of who’s responsible for different aspects of the job. Don’t forget to confirm that the estimated start and completion dates are stipulated in the estimate. They payment terms should also be clearly stated.
You can use this information to vet your prospective roofing contractor. It’s important to see if they’re legitimate and can be trusted to deliver quality work. Keep in mind that not every contractor has a large online presence, so it’s worth digging for more information.
Proof of License and Insurance
Each state has different licensing and insurance requirements. Do not work with a roofing contractor that doesn’t have either of these documents at all costs. This is because it’s risky to work with them and all responsibility and liabilities will fall on your shoulders in case something happens during your roofing project. Any reputable roofing company will be able to provide you with documentation of their licensing and insurance. Check their license number on your local licensing board for extra verification. Make sure that the estimate includes a proof of bonding, which protects you in case your roofer fails to complete the job.
