The contract is perhaps the most important thing you should consider in any roofing project. Being legal and binding, it assures you of good quality workmanship. It’s a guarantee that you will get your money’s worth. Listed below are five important items that you should find in a good roofing contract:
1. Project Duration
Having a projected start and end date on your contract helps eliminate the possibility of long and winding constructions. Experienced contractors will be able to give accurate time frames once they study your roof.
2. Product Details
Every single material selection should be itemized in your roofing contract. Your contract should also indicate quantities of materials as well as all the relevant warranty information.
3. Procedure Details
In this section of the contract, you should be able to see things such as the daytime hours your contractor plans to be working, as well as specific installation methods and safety precautions.
4. Terms of Payment
Payment terms must be stipulated in the contract. Common terms include a downpayment and subsequent payments after the project’s completion. You should be wary of contractors who insist on full payment upfront.
5. Warranty Details
To avoid future issues with your roofing, it is best to have warranty details in the contract that clearly show the duration and under what terms and conditions you may contact your roofer for repairs.
Good contractors will always work with contracts and good roofing contracts will always have these five items. Make sure to insist on these items the next time you plan to have work done on your roof.
