The final phase of selecting your roofing contractor is the process of collecting cost estimates from multiple contractors and comparing the estimates. Different roofers practice different labor rates and pricing policies, therefore the estimates provided to you are likely to be very different. The best way to make the right decision is to take your time to evaluate the estimates – here are some factors that can help you:
-Material pricing – if you need a roofer that provides the materials, too, you will need to do a little research to find out about the quality of the materials proposed;
-Warranties – reliable roofers provide warranty on the workmanship and you will get standard warranties with the materials, too. Check the terms in the manufacturer’s warranty and be aware that you also have the option to purchase extended warranty that covers not only for manufacturing defects, but for damage caused by the weather as well;
-The scope of work and the services included – check whether the estimates include all the processes that you need, such as the removal of the old roof, waste handling and site cleaning;
-Use your judgment – the estimates that are too expensive might be overpriced, while the ones that are too cheap might not give you the quality that you want, so the best estimates are in the middle of the price range. It is good to consider one of the local San Antonio roofing companies that has been in business for a long time.
