Many homeowners are willing to accept roofing quotes that contain very little more than the final amount to be paid for the roofing work. However, a roofing quote is much more than that – it is the document that will tell you exactly what you will be paying for in terms of the materials to be used on your roof and the labor.
According to a well known roofing contractor in Lawrenceville, here is what any acceptable quote should include:
- An approximated timeline – you should know exactly when your project is started as well as the date of completion. A good timeline includes rainchecks, too – the weather is not always on your side, so you will have some, it’s inevitable;
- Payment information – this section will include a breakdown of your payment deadlines;
- Detailed costs – this list should include the costs of removing the old roof and the resulting debris, the costs of heavy machinery rentals and other similar items;
- Labor fees – this part itemizes the work done on your roof;
- The materials and the related costs – this list should include even the number of the fasteners;
- Warranty information – you should get a manufacturer warranty on the materials used and a warranty offered by the contractor on the labor;
- Add-on costs – this is an important section because it tells you how much you can be expected to pay on incidentals.
