A reroof proposal is a fancier way to refer to a contract. When you hire a professional, the contractor will write up a proposal covering the provisions of the agreed-upon service. We recommend that homeowners look over the contract diligently because it reveals a lot of information that you may not be aware of.
Some companies use a standardized template and fill in a few blanks that describe the project in very general and vague terms. Some even supply a hastily hand-written note that only includes a list of materials and the total cost. This is a red flag that the contractor may fall short of industry standards.
A legit contractor will draft a highly detailed proposal for all residential and commercial roof work. A contractor also only drafts a proposal after evaluating the roof. Be cautious of roofers that draft a contract without actually getting on the roof and performing an inspection close-up.
Proposals vary depending on the complexity and length of the project, but should have the following:
- Parts list (e.g. shingle, flashing, siding, roof membrane, and underlayment)
- A cost breakdown of parts, labor, permits, debris removal, etc.
- Warranty information
- Liability insurance and workman’s compensation details
- Start date and estimated time of completion
- Provisions for add-ons or order changes should the client require additional repair work
- A lien release; this shields you from liability should the roofer neglect to make payments to suppliers and/or subcontractors
- Termination clause that describes the conditions in which the client or contractor can nullify the agreement
