What Your Roofing Contract Should Include


In any construction or repair jobs, one of the most important parts is the contract. In having your roof installed or fixed, you have to know which details must be included in the contract.


The terms of the contract must be something that was discussed with you and you have agreed to.


Before signing this important document and letting the contractors start working, there are critical details you should look for in your contract.


The exact duration of the project

The contract must indicate when the actual roof installation or repair will start and when it will end. It should have an exact start date and end date.


Description of the procedure

What needs to be done has to be described in detail as well as how the contractor plans to go about the project.


Itemized list of the products or materials that will be used for the project

All the materials purchased from the supplier must be listed properly. The exact quantities, the price per unit, as well as the total costs. You should also be aware why you need to buy each of the material and where would it be used for.



The contractor should put in writing the coverage of repairs or warranty for the job they have carried out. This should specify which type of work would be regarded as a repair and for how long will the warranty be valid.


Payment terms

The terms of payment should be presented clearly and should be something you have talked about with the contractor even before the contract was printed. Ordinarily, a contractor would ask for a little down payment, they would ask for another portion of the total fees as the project is ongoing and would just ask for the remainder of the agreed payment once the job is completed and you are happy with the results.
