Whether you need a leak repaired or need to replace your entire roof, there will come a time when you need a roofing quote. But when you don’t know much about the work required, what kind of things do you need to look for in the quote?
Firstly, you should take the time to get at least three quotes and compare them. It is natural to want to go for the lowest quote but this isn’t always the best move. Why? Because the lowest quote may not cover all the works that need to be done.
What is being quoted for?
This is a really big factor to look at when comparing roofing quotes. You need to ensure that the quote covers all work that needs to be done and not just some of the work. For example, if you need to have an asbestos roof removed and replaced, the quote needs to include the removal and disposing of the old asbestos roof and not just the removal. Ask the contractor to detail what their quote involves. This may include (depending on what you are having done):
- Removing the old roof
- New tile installation
- Dump fees
- Roof cleaning
- Roof painting
So what questions should you ask of the contractor to ensure you are comparing quotes like for like? The below are some of the most important questions:
- Does the quote include GST?
- Do they have insurance?
- Are they licensed to do the work you are paying them to do?
- Do they offer warranty and what does it cover?
- Will any extra roof tiles be left with you for future repairs?
- Who covers any damage done during the installation or repair of your roof?
- Quality of the materials used
