New Roof Checklist

You definitely want to use this checklist to help prepare for buying your New Roof.Feel free to add to this list and make additional notes!

First, answer the first set of questions. A contractor may ask these questions and the more information you can provide, the better s/he can help you with your New Roof. And don’t be afraid to ask the contractor questions!

Second, get at least 3 written estimates. Use the second section to record information collected during and after the estimate.

Third, compare your written estimates and choose the one that’s best for you. Try not to look only at the price. Price is, or course, the major consideration but make sure you take into account the product and its warranty and the quality of the company itself.
