The biggest decision you make before starting a home improvement project doesn’t involve color samples or fixtures; it’s the contractor you hire who can make or break the project! Soliciting and evaluating an estimate for New Jersey roofing is an important part of hiring the best contractor for your needs. The process can be unfamiliar and confusing, but by following these guidelines, you’ll ensure you get an estimate that includes the full scope of work to be completed and enough information to fairly evaluate the contractor’s proposal.
- On-site visit. At a mutually convenient time, a contractor vying for your business should come to your home to learn about the work you want completed. Allow him time to inspect your home and take measurements that will help determine material costs. Ask questions, and note whether he is upfront and easy to communicate with.
- Written estimate. Once the contractor has gathered information about the scope of your project, he should then prepare a written proposal with itemized costs for the various elements of the job. This should also include the estimated completion time.
- Estimate review. The contractor should present the prepared estimate to you, along with current references and honest answers to additional questions you have.
Once you have at least three bids for your New Jersey roofing project, it’s then time to compare the estimates according to cost, references from past customers, the local reputation of the contractor and your personal impressions.
