There are few things more frustrating than receiving an initial estimate and then getting hit with a higher price after a repair is complete. While it’s important to remember that an estimate is merely an educated guess as to the cost of repairs and labor on a project, transparency is key.

To help you get the most accurate estimate on your next roof repair, our team at J&J Roofing works hard to ensure transparency throughout a project. In this post, we’re breaking down what’s included in a roof repair estimate and what factors can affect the final cost. Give us a call to get a fair estimate on your next roof repair project today!

Getting an Accurate Estimate

Whether a contractor is giving a roof repair estimate or an auto repair estimate, they’re usually doing their best to work from the information in front of them. Unfortunately, that amount is always subject to possible change if the information in front of them changes. Sometimes, a contractor will begin a project only to realize that there are significant underlying problems or more costly expenses involved. On the other hand, a project can sometimes end up costing less than anticipated.

The final cost of a roof repair will take all of these factors into consideration:

  • Replacement roof materials
  • Waste disposal
  • Labor costs
  • Transportation of materials

To get a more accurate roof repair estimate, be sure to go with an experienced roof repair contractor who conducts a thorough inspection ahead of your roof maintenance project. Let your roofer know about any possible leaks or signs of damage you may have observed as the homeowner as well. Be sure the contractor has thoroughly inspected your property before you agree to pay for any work.

Choosing the Right Contractor

To make sure you get a fair estimate, be sure you’re working with a contractor you can trust. These days, it’s hard to tell the unlicensed contractors from the experts, and anyone can pay for an ad on the Internet. Choose a contractor with plenty of posted local reviews so you can see what other local homeowners are saying. Make sure they’re licensed and insured, and be sure to check out their Better Business Bureau profile. Finally, ask about any warranties available for your residential roofing project.
