Making a Roofing Contract

  • What is a Roofing Contract?

    Roofers and property owners use Roofing Contracts to lay out the details of roofing work. When drafted correctly, this essential legal contract protects both parties when a roof needs to be installed, repaired, or replaced. With Rocket Lawyer, your Roofing Agreement is not just a template. If you ever need help from a lawyer due to nonpayment or another issue, your Premium membership provides optional access to Document Defense® protection on each contract.

  • Why should roofers make a contract for roofing jobs?

    Whether you are repairing shingles or installing solar panels, you should always have a Roofing Contract. You might decide that you want to use this document due to the fact that it yields the following benefits:

    • Payment-related information is well-defined
    • The length of the project is agreed upon
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by everyone

    In the end, if you and/or your property owner fail to sign this document, you might not enjoy any of the aforementioned benefits.

  • What information should my Roofing Contract cover?

    Before getting started, you should prepare the following critical details:

    • Name and address of your client
    • How much it will cost and when payment is due
    • What the start and end dates are
    • What kind of services will be provided

    As usual, your agreement made on Rocket Lawyer also contains the typical legalese about the independent work relationship between the parties, liability for losses, warrantees, and dispute resolution methods. When you build your agreement, you also will be able to decide its state of jurisdiction. With the document tool, you have the ability to add further adjustments and edits, as well.

  • How can I find a custom roofing contract template online?

    With Rocket Lawyer, every Roofing Contract that you create can be tailored to you. Simply tap or click the button that says "Make document" and respond to a series of questions. It is recommended that you think about having a lawyer in our nationwide network of attorneys review it. This route will often be notably less expensive than meeting with and hiring your average provider, whose hourly fees might cost hundreds of dollars or thousands, depending on the complexity of the matter.

    If you have any questions about how to move forward, talk to an attorney. You might also like to explore our entire library of contracts and other legal documents for business owners and operators.

  • What should I do after making a Roofing Contract?

    In order to make the drafted document into a true legal agreement, both parties must sign it. RocketSign® makes this process simple. Make sure to provide a final copy of your fully signed agreement to your client. With a membership, you also may save it as a Word or PDF document, print it out, and/or copy it as necessary.

  • Would Rocket Lawyer be able to check my Roofing Agreement before it is signed?

    Getting another set of eyes on your document can take longer than you would expect if you try to do it on your own. An alternate approach to consider is to get help via the On Call network. Rocket Lawyer Premium members can ask for a contract review from an experienced lawyer or ask additional questions. As a business owner or operator, you can Work Confidently® with Rocket Lawyer by your side.

  • How much does a roofing owner make?

    There are several factors that can impact how much a roofing contractor makes when installing, repairing, or replacing a roof, such as:

    • The geographic location of the project
    • The type of roofing materials being used
    • The scope of the project (including whether an old roof must be removed)
    • The urgency of the work
    • Who is paying for the work (insurance company or homeowner/business owner)
