The Estimate for Your Roof Replacement – Facts to Know

Posted by at 9:00 AM

07jul23g7a14It might be time to invest in new roofing if the Minnesota winters have been hard on yours. As you're considering the alternatives, you want to ensure that the roofing material you choose is able to withstand heat, wind and moisture for many years so you do not have to keep replacing the roof.  Look into the pros and cons of each of the choices and find out how much they are going to cost you to have it installed. You want to get the best of the best for your home so make sure to look into some important aspects.

Finding the Right MN Roofer is Step One

This is an important step that cannot be ignored when it comes to putting in a new roof. You should ask around to see if anyone is able to refer you to someone. You want to read reviews and find out if they are licensed with the state. You're trusting this company with your home, so it's a good idea to do some homework to make sure you've chosen a reputable company.  Find out more about them, learn what you should expect when it comes to working with them, and then you're ready to request an estimate.

What You Should Know About a Roof Replacement Estimate

The estimate that the MN roofing company does for you generally does not take more than 40 minute to complete,  and you need to make sure that you understand everything in your estimate. The prices of the roof are going to vary depending on the materials that you choose, but you should ask for the following information during the estimate:
  • The day the project is expected to start
  • The day the project is expected to be finished (keep in mind that this is a guideline, and the actual finish date will depend on the weather, as well as other factors)
  • A detailed description of what is going to be done, the items to be used and so forth
  • The type of sealants and other materials that are going to be used
  • The clean-up expectations
  • The warranties that the products come with and the quality of the products and the work that is being done
  • The workmanship warranty offered by the contractor
  • A breakdown of the prices that are included for exactly what you're paying for – a down payment of a quarter to half of the costs is usually expected from contractors up front to cover the costs of the materials and so forth, but a reputable MN roofing contractor will not ask for the rest until after the job is done and you're satisfied with the results.
