With the countless roofing contractors all around the country offering a free estimate on your roofing replacement or repair, it’s not unusual to get confused with the varying costs they will quote. You might wonder why this is the case.
As a general rule, bids differ because of the bill of materials, specifically the quantity of materials used, warranties, and costs (how charges will be computed). For example, with roof leak repair, it has to be agreed clearly who will shoulder what. To prevent any misunderstanding, it is best to send your specific needs and measurements to filter unwarranted costs.
Today, Les Norris Roofing, LLC wants to shed some light on this baffling task of sorting and choosing the right roofer for the job. Roofers’ bids vary due to these factors:
Hourly labor rates and productivity may vary substantially. In this case, the homeowner has to get more bids until he finds the one he’s most comfortable working with.
Uninsured unprofessional roofers typically offer lower cost, reliability and experience. Be careful to not be easily swayed by a lower repair cost because measly savings might put you up in a costly liability battle when accidents happen.
As they say, you get what you pay for, so it’s always better to hire the best roofing contractor that you can afford. Some roofers, for example, bid low but simply install new shingles on top of the old ones to save time and money. This may lead to premature failure and possibly void the manufacturer’s warranty.
Roofing estimates may just mean hopping on a ladder and giving a ballpark figure of the cost to cover the repair or replacement of the proposed area. On the other hand, a roofing inspection is a more detailed and formal approach to knowing what your roof needs. Inspections are usually not free.
