Most homeowners get a roof replacement at least once in their lifetime, unless they’re aiming for a roofing new construction to upgrade their exteriors or improve their energy efficiency. This means they only rarely get to see a roof replacement estimate, if at all. Repairs can happen occasionally, but a full replacement due to regular wear and tear, typically involves more than routine repair and maintenance visits.
Considering everything that goes into replacing a roof, the estimate for this kind of job can also be filled with a lot of details. These details can be confusing if you don’t know what to look for in it.
Roof repairs and replacements are best handled by local roofing companies. However, just because they’re local doesn’t mean you don’t have to know their number or where their headquarters is located. Your estimate should include basic contact information so you can reach out to your contractors in case you have questions about the project.
Details of the Construction
Expect to find an itemized list of every aspect of your roof replacement. If you’re getting new gutters, the estimate should reflect this. If you’re also insulating your attic or installing new soffit vents, you should find them in the estimate as well. Aside from the cost of the materials, the estimate should also show how much the labor costs for the whole project should be.
Schedules and Start and Finish Dates
A new construction or replacement for an averagely sized roof usually takes about three full working days. Your estimate should also include when the project will begin as well as a mostly accurate estimate of when it will be finished.
