An estimate of your roofing project must be established and agreed upon by both the homeowner and the roofing contractor before any roofing work can start. The estimate determines the financial parameters of the project, project schedule, date of payment, materials to be used, and much more.
Planning to start a new roofing project and not sure what to look out for on your estimate? Carry on reading as we break down what your roof estimate is supposed to look like.
The roofing estimate should include a complete description of the roofing project. It details a step-by-step process of how the project is set to unfold, the design specifications, which parts of your roofing system are to be removed or installed, the materials to be used, etc.
A set schedule for the roofing project must be determined and agreed upon by both the homeowner and the roofing company. This includes a commencement date when each step of the project will be completed, and an estimated completion date agreeable to all parties involved before work begins on site.
Budget Allocation and Payment
This details how much your project is estimated to cost. It includes how your budget will be allocated, the payment structure of the project, if payments will be split up or if one total payment of the project will be made. It also establishes a date for when these payments need to be made.
Insurance and Licensing Information
This includes your insurance information and the licensing details of the roofing company you’re working with. It also consists of any documentation or proof provided by your contractor to prove that they are qualified for this type of project, as well as their experience level when it comes to undertaking roofing work.
The roofing company you hired and your insurance both have a vested interest in ensuring that all of the necessary licensing information is correct. This ensures peace of mind, knowing that should anything happen to their work or vice versa, they can recover from any damages incurred without worry.
Warranties and Guarantees
If the roofing company offers any warranties and guarantees on the roofing project, it needs to be stated and detailed in the roofing estimate.
A Means For Exit
Should either of the parties have a reason to terminate the roofing project, there needs to be an established and agreed upon termination clause that allows either party to walk away from the project without legal implications.
