Checklist For Your Roof Replacement

davinci slateIf you are planning on replacing your old roof, you'll want to have a checklist, which will help you decide on the contractor, roofing materials to be used, budget and the total time of the project.

Here is a checklist, which will help you decide on your roof replacement, especially if you have steep slope roofing.

  • Get at least three written estimates, from reputable and licensed contractors.
  • Check how long the contractor has been in this business and as well as their expertise with regard to various roofing materials.
  • Ask for references and check them before awarding the contract.
  • Go and look at the other roofs that the contractor has done.
  • Ask for samples of the roof shingles, which will help you in making the decision on the roofing material for your home. 
  • Ask the contractor about the disposal of the old roofing material and whether the disposal will cost you extra.
  • Get an idea of when the contractor can start and when the project will be done.  You might need to get a building permit from your city as well.
  • Check with the contractor details regarding liability caused during repairs to the neighbors property.
  • Be home when the roof is being installed to make sure the project runs smoothly and that you're pleased with the work.
  • All details pertaining to the contract must be written and signed.
