How to Get Roof Cost Estimates

How much does it cost to install, replace or repair your roof? Well, getting roof cost estimates takes time if you do it the traditional way. It takes calling around to a bunch of different roofing contractors, informing them of what you need, and scheduling several appointments. Many times, a roofer will not really be interested in doing the type of work that needs to be done. This can frustrate a lot of people.

Using a service to match you to a local roofer can be an efficient approach to getting the work done. All you need to do is describe your need and submit it. Roofers that are interested in the roof work you need performed will contact you. Most matching services, like ours, notify 3 or 4 professionals, which allows you to get roof cost estimates from several installers.

We suggest that you not submit your information to multiple matching services unless the first service you submit to is unable to suggest a good roofer or roofing contractor. Multiple requests will lead to a bunch of calls because each service tries to connect you with several contractors.

When roofers contact you, here are some helpful suggestions:

1. Have a list of relevant questions ready to ask that are related to your roof construction project.

2. Take a few minutes to talk on the phone with the roofer that contacts you. Ask yourself: Are they personable? Did you get a good feeling? Do you like them?

3. Review their websites online, find customer reviews, and see if other customers had a good experience with the company you are thinking of hiring.

4. Ask for licenses and insurance so you know they can do work in your local area.

5. Ask for a written roof cost estimate and request itemized lists so that you know exactly what the cost includes. Compare your itemized roof costs to see where you are getting your best value.

6. The least expensive roofing contractor may not be your best choice. Consider the total package…which includes quality, timing, and cost. Sometimes you may choose to pay more if you believe you will receive a better quality product in the time you expect it to be completed.

Good luck with your search. If you need help, request a roof cost estimate using our service. Just click the link below to get started.
