What To Know About Roofing Contractor Quotes


Before you settle on a roofing contractor to inspect your roof, repair it, replace it or install it, you need to get some quotes. If you have never done that before, then you should read one to find out how best to go about getting quotes before making a decision.

Get Multiple Quotes

First and foremost, you need to compare the rates that are being proposed. You won’t know how good or bad a certain rate is until you compare it to some others. The more quotes that you compare, the better your chances will be of finding a good deal or saving some money. The best contractors tend to not have very high or very low rates, but fall somewhere in the middle.

Be sure to give the same information to each contractor so that the quotes are being compared on equal footing.

Check Availability

Just because a contractor can give you a quote, that does not mean they can come to your home or business and do the job for you when you want. They could be tied up with other jobs and not available when you need them, so you want to factor that in when you are comparing services. Be sure to ask about availability when you request the quote and bear in mind that availability can change while you are trying decide which contractor to go with. Asking for a quote is not the same as scheduling service, so you need to act quickly once you make up your mind about which contractor to use.

Know What You Are Asking For

When you request a quote, you need to give the contractor all the relevant information. Be sure to give detailed information on what kind of roof you need them to work on, what kind of work you need to have done and what condition the roof is in. The contractor may or may not ask the relevant questions, and you need to make sure that you know what to ask for and what details to supply the contractors. If you ask for an inspection quote, but you actually want work beyond that, then get a quote for that as well.

Also tell the contractor about the kind of material your roof has and what kind of problems they may come across when they get to your property. If they will have a difficult time accessing the roof, then you need to let them know that as well.

Small factors can add to the price and really add up, so be sure to consider all the relevant data that a contractor may need. You’ll get a more accurate quote if the contractor comes to your property and assesses everything for themselves. You may have to pay a small fee for them to come out, but some of them will not charge you anything for the initial inspection and quote. If the contract charges you for a quote, then that is a red flag that they will price gouge you in other places as well.

We suffered some damage to our roof during the recent windy weather. Within a few hours Sean and his team had arrived to sort it out for us. Wonderful service.

I only had a small job to do. Just one broken tile. But it was no problem, they came out and fixed it in a very short time. I’d recommend Roofers Dublin to anyone.

I had a flat roof that had seen better days. Sean’s team did a great job restoring the whole thing and I’m very pleased. Definitely a recommended roofer.
