Whether you’re having roofing work done on your home or a commercial building, you know you’re dealing with a serious investment. You likely also know how important a functional roof is to a residential or commercial property.

That’s why it’s so important to get an estimate before any work is done on your roof. You want to ensure the company you’re hiring is going to do quality work at a fair cost. Here are some reasons to get an estimate before roofing work begins on your home or business:

Know The Cost

As stated above, roofing repair or replacement work is a major investment. It’s important to understand up front how much you’re going to have to pay. A good estimate will tell you exactly what you’ll be expected to pay and will give you an itemized list of where the money is going so you know exactly what you’ll be paying for. Additionally, it will clarify how much money you will pay up front, when other payments are due, and the final due date.

Timeline Details

While certain repair and coating jobs may not take much time, other jobs such as full replacement will take a little longer. In the estimate, the contractor should spell out what the expected beginning and end dates of the project will be. This may not be exact due to unforeseen circumstances, but it will give you a general idea of how long the project will take.

A Better Picture of the Roof’s Condition

Even if you know your roof is in need of repair, you may not know the exact extent of the damage. An estimate will give you a full report of your roof’s condition, what work needs to be done to return it to full function, and what materials need to be used. This will tell you exactly what is wrong with the roof and what is being done to fix it.
