How To Understand Your Roof Repair Estimate

Brittany Howard

If you have recently determined that your roof needs some repairs to be done, then you are going to want to take care of those repairs as soon as you possibly can. Otherwise, you are putting yourself at risk of the damages getting much worse or a rain storm coming in and causing water damage. When a roofer comes out to look at your roof, they will give you an estimate that lets you know what they foresee the job costing you and how long they foresee the job taking to complete. You want to make sure you understand the estimate, know what things should be on it, and know why those things are so important to list. Here is an article that will make it easier for you to completely understand your roofing estimate:

Things you should expect to see on your estimate and why

The specifics of the repairs to be done – You want to see what exactly will be done on the roof and make sure you understand what is going to be covered in the repairs.

The project dates for starting and completing the repairs – Know what date the repairs will be started on and when they are going to be finished by.

The price and payment terms – This is very important. It will spell out the expected price for the repairs, how the roofer expects to be paid and when they expect to receive which payments and any other payment terms.

The costs of the labor and the materials – Know the breakdown of the costs of both the labor and the material. This section should also detail the information on the fees for any permits that may be needed to complete the repairs, as well as fees for any type of machinery rental, as well as fees for the cleanup that may need to be done after the repairs have been finished.

Details on the materials to be used – This part will cover information such as the type of roofing materials to be replaced, as well as the other materials to be used for the job. Some examples of other products can include the type and style of the roofing tiles or shingles, flashing, hot tar, etc.

Information on the roofing company – You will see the company name, their license information, information on their insurance and all their contact information.

About Me
Talking About Roofing Services

Hello, I'm Erica. Welcome to my site about roofing services. We moved into a home in the middle of a stormy country. Although the roof was nice when we moved in, the constant barrage of storms quickly changed its construction. The shingles flew off and flashing unwound until the roof looked awful and started to leak. At that point, we knew we needed to act fast. Luckily, with one call to a roofer, we scheduled the repairs needed to keep it in great shape, even through future storms. I will use this site to talk more about how our roof was repaired and storm proofed.
