Understanding The Basic Parts Of A Roofing Estimate
Understanding the details of a roofing estimate can be a little confusing. There are so many details to keep track of that a regular layperson with no knowledge at all about how the industry works can easily get overwhelmed. Add that to the fact that any project involving your roof, whether it’s a simple repair job or a full replacement, often carries with it a significant cost, and you have the perfect recipe for a really stressful time.
Materials and Labor
Different roofers may present you with completely different listed items, but there are always two main parts that almost all cost estimates will show: materials and labor. If you’ve done your research about the individual price of roofing materials, then it may surprise you that the prices reflected on an estimate are often higher. Markups are normal, but be wary of companies that charge more than 30% of the standard pricing.
Labor costs are a little trickier to navigate. A good rule of thumb is to choose a contractor who can fully explain every item on their estimate.
No Inspection, No Estimate
It’s often a huge red flag if a roofing company provides you with an estimate without doing an inspection. This is a common scam tactic that unscrupulous contractors employ. The only way to get a complete estimate is to have them inspect your property and identify all the issues relating to your roof.
