Once you find your roofing company, relacing your roof is easy. The hardest part? Finding a reputable roofing company in Brighton, Michigan. We always recommend shopping around to get an estimate range before you sign on the dotted line. Here at Herbert’s Roofing Company, we aim to provide you a transparent estimate, so you know the investment you’re about to make.
Line-Item Estimate with Material & Labor Costs
Be wary if your estimate comes back as a sole number – and not an itemized list. Your estimate should be specific and broken out by material and labor costs. As a rule of thumb: all things that impact the price of your roof replacement should be listed in the estimate. The experts at Herbert Roofing always provide customers with an itemized estimate, and did we mention our estimate is free?
Project Timeline and Basic Company Information
Often overlooked, the roofing project timeline and basic company information should be located at the top of the estimate. This should include an estimated start and completion date, company role and responsibility, business phone number and email address, and payment terms. The last thing you want is to get stuck with a roofing project that doesn’t seem to have an end date.
Transparent Fine Print
Fine print is inevitable, and it’s important to find – and read it – before moving forward with a roofing company. Some roofing companies intentionally hide the fine print by not including it or listing it on the back of the estimate. Typically, this means the roofing company will not take any responsibility for damage to your roof and other associated materials. If this is the case with your estimate, we recommend hiring a more reputable, local roofing company.
No Hidden Fees
If you find an estimate that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Roofing companies with lower-than-average prices are known for having hidden fees, such as dump fees and extra labor costs. To avoid hidden fees, always compare roofing estimates to understand what line-items are typically included in your local area. The most common hidden fees include dump fees, extra labor costs, as well as rotten roof decking replacement. Feel free to ask your roofing company about any of these three fees and what they charge for them.
Top Rated, Manufacturer-Certified Warranties
Outside of the cost, your estimate should also include the roofing warranty. If you receive an estimate with no warranty included, there’s a possibility there is no warranty at all. Make sure to look for both the workmanship and the manufacturer warranty when reviewing the estimate. Roofing companies with manufacturer-certified warranties are seen as the best companies in the local area and trusted by Brighton homeowners. Hebert Roofing offers top rated roofing warranties on the marketplace, with lifetime warranties on certain products.
