A roofing estimate gives homeowners a clear picture of what to expect with their planned projects. Once they sign the contract, the project can proceed. However, before you sign the dotted line, make sure to look for some essential items in your contract.
These are the things that should be included in roofing estimates and contracts.
Cost of Labor
Right from the start, your roofing contractor should be upfront with you on how much you can expect to spend to see your project through. It should also include payment terms and schedules as those will help you get your finances in order before the project’s completion.
Specifics on Materials
Roofing estimates and contracts should also include specific information on the materials your contractor will use for the duration of your project. This will help you avoid cases where the contractor ends up skimping on materials. You should get your money’s worth.
Provisions for Changes or Add-Ons
Not all projects go according to plan. In some cases, your roofer may discover underlying problems with your residential roofing system. Sometimes, you may want to make changes or additions to your project as it moves along. That’s why it’s important to have a section in your contract dedicated to changes and add-ons.
Termination clauses are safety nets in roofing contracts. They give full details about the reasons under which you or the contractor can terminate the project without subsequent penalties. If for some reason you should choose to terminate the project, these clauses will help protect you from liability.
