The process of finding the best roofing contractor for your project involves many initial steps, starting with the identification and the preliminary verification of local roofers and continued with face-to-face meetings and requesting written cost estimates from each potential roofing contractor Lincoln NE has to offer. The final phase of the selection process should be the evaluation and comparison of the written estimates that you receive from the contractors – here is how to do it:
- The details that a good estimate needs to include – the roofing estimate should be a detailed document that provides information about the following aspects: payment details including not only the amount, but the payment deadlines and the accepted payment methods; the timeline, including the final deadline for the completion of the project; an itemized list with the materials to be used and their prices; a full description of the tasks to be completed by the roofing team; guarantees and warranties for the roofing materials as well as for the workmanship; provisions that detail additional costs and a means of exit that allows either parties to terminate the agreement without having to pay penalties;
- Take your time to compare the documents – cost estimates might be different in terms of form, but you should try to make your way through all the details and compare all of them based on the basic categories of information provided. The cheapest and the most estimates are rarely the best, so choose a reasonable, mod-range estimate.
