Details That Should Be Included in Your Roofing Estimate

Whether you’re planning to invest in a new roofing installation or repair work, you should be very particular with the proposals and roofing estimates your prospective contractors give you. Estimates differ from one roofer to another, but there are some universal details that should always be spelled out in any estimate.

Roofing Estimate

In this post, the roofing experts at Buford Roofing and Construction, Inc. discuss what these important details are and why they should be in your roofing estimate.

The Bid

Your roofing estimate must have the contractor’s bid spelled out specifically, who will be responsible for what, the start and completion dates as well as the payment details and terms. Your prospective roofing company must also include information such as cost of labor and materials and the permits they need to secure.

Information on the Roofing Materials

The bid must also state what kind of materials your prospective roofer will be using, along with technical information on the roof. This includes details on the type of underlayment, flashing and ventilation. These are important parts of your estimate not only because they affect the price, but because you should know what exactly your roofers are installing on your roof.

The Lien Release

The Lien Release protects you from liability in the event the roofer fails to pay the subcontractors or roofing suppliers. Without it, you may end up paying for the costs on their behalf. You want to see this on your roofing estimate.

Termination Clause

Finally, your contract should also have a termination clause which basically spells out reasons you or the contractor may end your agreement with one another. The termination clause also gives a rundown of the contract terms that should not be violated, which are important details for the success of your project.
