Choosing to replace your roof is one of the largest monetary investments you can make in your home. So, you want to be sure you understand exactly how the costs are determined and that you are comfortable with the roofing contractor doing the work.
Every roofing company may calculate their cost estimates slightly differently. If you request a quote, always ask for a written proposal that details every cost broken out. Just comparing a lump-sum can be helpful in ruling out those contractors that are out of your budget, but it is good to know where your costs are coming from. For inspections, if a roofing contractor charges a $500 removal fee to the old shingles and other items taken off of your roof, but another contractor doesn’t, then this is valuable information to know. When you receive a roofing estimate, it should explicitly spell out:
If not included in the quote, always ask for a lien release. This protects you in case the roofer skips out on paying their materials vendors or their subcontractors. Your house is protected and you are not held liable for covering their missed payments. Before you settle on a contractor based on their quote, be sure to have at least 3-4 other estimates to compare. This can give you a better idea of how their charges are calculated and where their charges are coming from.
