This leads back to asking follow-up questions after receiving the estimate. Pricing for a roof encompasses a lot of factors, including material, size, slope, extras, labor, special needs of the roof, overhead for the company, and more. A professional roofing company should look at more than just the size of your roof to give you an answer, they should be able to explain what factors they’ve taken into account — like material, labor, slope, etc. — to help you understand how they reached the number they did.
Asking about pricing is also when you should hear about any warranties they offer, the quality of the materials, and other benefits. Vague answers should be a red flag, as you, as the consumer, are entitled to know where the money is going for the project and how it benefits you and your home overall. An experienced Montgomery County roofing company will be able to explain their pricing and why it works best for you and them.
