What Should My Roof Replacement Estimate Look Like?

March 15, 2023


A roof replacement estimate is a crucial document that Bailey’s Roofing and Construction providers provide to their customers. For homeowners in Oklahoma who are considering roof repair or replacement, your estimate should include these things. 

Type and Extent of Damage

One of the important factors that Bailey’s considers when providing a roof replacement estimate is the type and extent of the damage. Based on the inspection, we will determine whether a complete replacement or repair is necessary. Our estimates will clearly outline the scope of the work required to fix the roof, so you can understand the extent of the project.

Cost of Materials

Another critical component that we will offer in the estimate is the cost of materials. The estimate should provide a breakdown of the materials required. On that list will be the type and quality of the materials. This information will help you make informed decisions about the materials used in the project.

Cost of Labor

Roof replacement estimates should include the cost of labor. The cost of labor will depend on the amount of work required, and the experience of the roofing contractors. This breakdown of labor costs should also include any associated expenses such as permits and disposal fees.


Just as you expect the cost breakdown, you should also be given the timeline for project completion. It should indicate when the work will begin and when it is projected to be completed. This is crucial information to you as a homeowner so you may make necessary arrangements for alternative housing if necessary.

Warranty Information

The estimate that you are given should always provide a warranty, which includes a detailed outline of the terms and conditions. You should be made aware of the length of warranty as well as what is covered. This will be the information that will provide peace of mind to homeowners, knowing that any issues will be further addressed by the roofing contractors. Be wary of hidden fine print, and any hidden fees.

All of this information provided on your roof replacement estimate will be instrumental in getting a roof damage insurance claim approved. Many insurance companies require evidence of damage and the costs involved in repairing or replacing. Bailey’s Roofing and Construction also offers financial assistance if needed.

Ask the Questions

There is a lot of information given on roof replacement estimates, and if you have questions but don’t know where to even start, that is normal. Not everyone is a roofing expert. Some good questions to ask your contractor before signing include:

  • Ask more questions about what your warranty includes.
  • Does the estimate include tax?
  • What is the process if they find more damage than was originally found during the inspection?
  • Are they looking at the entire roofing project or just quoting the shingles or tiles?
