You enter the estimate phase of your roofing project once you’ve obtained the recommendations from your friends, family and co-workers. In this part of the plan, you are tasked to collect as many roofing estimates from roofing companies as possible. With so much information supplied within these proposals, you might not know which one is the better deal for you.
NorthWest Construction, your local roofing company and expert in bathroom remodeling, discusses the ways on how to compare the estimates you have received.
Cost of Roofing Materials
A roofing estimate contains the necessary details that will help set your expectations for your project. It will also highlight the potential total cost of all the components that may be used. Be sure to check the roofing material that you will be using and other items that come with it, such as the flashing and underlayment.
Each item must contain specifications to give you an idea as to its quality. You may be surprised that one contractor’s estimate is more expensive than the others, but that may be because its products are of higher quality.
Cost of Labor
Like in bathroom remodeling, the quality of the roofing project upon its completion must fit the cost of labor. Some contractors might charge more for it, though it is worth pondering the fact that they have years of experience in the industry to warrant this.
That being said, it is important that you exercise due diligence when making your background check of the contractors you are obtaining estimates from. Taking note of their certifications and licenses is imperative, which means it is possible to gain access to industry-leading products.
