When you're getting ready for a roof replacement, getting a few estimates is vital to knowing whether your budget is sound and if you have additional room to upgrade to better quality roofing materials.
But what happens during the estimate process? Why is it important to have a professional estimate completed on your project and how do roofing estimates affect your insurance claims when you've had damage to your home? With almost 70 years of experience in the industry, we've helped many homeowners and business owners through the process of getting a professional roofing estimate.
THE PROCESS OF GETTING A ROOFING ESTIMATE
Before you sign a contract with any roofing company, make sure you get an estimate in writing. These estimates should have details on:
By having this information on hand, you can quickly determine whether a company is cutting corners by using cheap materials, whether they'll suddenly become much harder to contact once they have your money, or if they'll take care of any problems down the road.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL ESTIMATE
By getting a written professional estimate, you now have a legal document on what the roofing company will do to complete your project. This means that you have some protection against the price going above a particular amount. Though some damage and required repairs may be difficult to predict before opening a roof envelope or wall cavity, a professional estimate will protect you against incidentals that may suddenly double your project's cost.
HOW ROOFING ESTIMATES CAN AFFECT YOUR INSURANCE CLAIM
By having a professional roofing estimate completed, it gives you proof of the work that is required to return your home back to its original state. After a major storm sweeps through an area, contractors will often sweep in offering low estimates but will do minimal work to repair your home. Always make sure that you're dealing with a quality contractor who can provide long-term service on the work they've completed.
