Obtaining cost estimates from multiple roofers is a crucial phase in hiring the right Fort Collins roofing company for your residential project – here is why:
- The document includes everything you need to know about project costs – ideally, roofing cost estimates include not only the final amount to be paid for the roofing services. The document should include itemized lists of the products to be used on the roof, with prices for each of them as well as a list of the tasks and services provided by the roofer, with the associated labor rates;
- Giving you the big picture – labor rates and material prices vary considerably in the roofing business, that is why you should collect at least three or four estimates. Getting multiple quotes will allow you to get an idea of the prices practiced in your area and will give you ground for comparison.
The more estimates you can get, the better. When evaluating what is being offered by the contractors you have contacted, be aware that the most expensive quote is not necessarily the best and if an offer looks too good to be true, it usually is, so what you should look at while evaluating estimates is probably the offers in the mid-range.
