Only after an inspection can a responsible contractor give an estimate because the price of a new roof system varies widely, depending on all of the following: materials, contractor, home or building, location of the home or building, local labor rates, and time of year. The best way to estimate a cost is to have a Van Martin certified specialist take a look at your roof.
To get a solid idea of the price for your roof system, get three or four proposals in total from reputable contractors in your area. Please keep in mind that price is only one factor, and it must be balanced with the quality of the materials and workmanship.
For example, for each roofing material, there are different grades and corresponding prices, as well as a vast array of styles and shapes. To be fully satisfied, you’ll need to look at the full product range and make a choice based on your budget and needs.
Within the roofing profession, there are different levels of expertise and craftsmanship. Finding a contractor who is committed to quality work is crucial.
According the Better Business Bureau out of 8 million filed claims 80% of these came from customers choosing the lowest price. A company that will stand behind the work they do along with upgraded warranties from the manufacturers will not always be the lowest bidder for your project.
