Roof repair costs can vary depending on the contractor or roofer you talk to. It is important to do research on the type of repair, as well as the roofing contractor, to be sure you are getting a reliable and quality service for the price. Disreputable companies could take advantage of your misfortune, so before you make a decision consider these points:
Protect your Investment
The moment you have decided on a roof repair contractor, you are giving them permission to come to your home, get on your roof, and make changes to your home. It is vital that they are insured and bonded. Insurance protects you if anyone is injured on the job site and will also protect your property from any unforeseen damages. A reputable company will be licensed, insured and bonded.
Know the Cost Upfront
The best way to know what the most reasonable cost is to research the job that needs to be done and compare pricing. Estimates are often given free by roofing contractors, but don’t feel pressured into making a commitment and signing anything until you are sure that the price is reasonable. It is okay to get more than one estimate to compare cost.
What is Reasonable?
When you are researching the price for repairs, consider the type of roof, age of the roof and type of repairs that need to be done.
- Common Roof Repairs for a Metal, Composite or Tile Roof average between $250 and $350.
- Common Roof Repairs for Asphalt Shingles or Wood Shake average between $300 and $360.
- Common Roof Repairs for Slate Roofs will average around $500 to $600.
Common Roof Repairs can also include extra labor charges along with the replacement parts and materials. Smaller jobs like gutter repair, missing tiles and repairs to fascia can be less expensive.
When you are sure of the repairs that need to be made, do the research on pricing before you sign the papers with your contractor. Check the reviews for your roof repair contractor online and ask for references.
Call the references and ask questions about pricing, service and repairs.
