A roofing estimate is one of the documents most essential to your roof replacement project. This document contains all the elements you’ll need to review when deciding whether you want to hire a certain contractor. Spicer Bros. Construction, Inc., a siding contractor in this area, lists the essential items covered in a proper roofing estimate.

Items That Should Be In a Proper Roofing Estimate

A Complete Overview

Roofing estimates should spell out the details of the different aspects of the project, including the starting and ending dates. The duration of a roof replacement will differ from one home to another, depending on the size of your home, weather conditions and the roofing materials to be used. In addition to the starting and ending dates, the first part of your roofing estimate should detail the terms of payment.


After a quick rundown of the project, your roofing contractor should also be upfront with you about all the costs involved in the roof installation. These include both labor and material.


Look for the section in your roofing estimate that outlines all the materials to be used during the installation project. This should include the type of shingles, flashing, underlayment and ventilation. Remember to consider exactly what the warranty will cover and its duration when choosing your roofing material.

Licenses and Insurance

Your roofing contractor should be able to prove that they’re properly licensed and insured. Most states require contractors to have these credentials to release permits.
