Understanding Roofing Estimates
As a residential or commercial property owner in the Greater Phoenix area, chances are you’re going to need the services of a professional roofing contractor at some point. But, how do you know what to expect? How do you know if the estimate you receive is adequate? If it’s something you should trust? Don’t worry, the team at United Roofing & Restoration is here to help. We’ve taken the time to provide a list of the elements that should be present in every roofing estimate to make it easier for you to gauge the validity of any roofing estimate you receive.
Roofing contracts are big commitments and you should always try to get multiple estimates to ensure you have a range of options available to you. This will help to weed out those that are too off-the-mark to be reliable. You can always call (928) 412-9467 and avoid the uncertainty altogether – no matter what your roofing project or material.
Whether you get one roofing estimate or five of them, you need to make sure that each of them contains all of the following information:
- Project Responsibilities
- Project Timelines
- Payment Terms
- Cost Labor & Materials
- Cost for Permitting
- Debris Removal
- Materials Information
- Warranty Information
- Licensing & Insurance
As long as a roofing estimate you’re considering has all of the elements listed above included, you should be fine with choosing that roofing contractor to tackle your project. If a roofer gives you pushback on any of the elements described above, run away from them as fast as your legs can take you. That goes for references, too. Any reputable roofer will be happy to provide references upon request. That’s what they’re there for!
A roofing project can be a pleasure or a pain for you as the customer. It all depends on who you choose as your roofing contractor. A roofing estimate can tell you a great deal about a contractor – about their willingness to share information, their past work history, and their licensing and insurance coverage. Make certain your estimates have all of these included, or just call on United Roofing & Restoration and be sure it’s all there before you see it!
