Roofing Contract basics

If you own real property, there is a very good chance you will need to install a new roof, repair, or replace the existing roof at some point. If you are a roofing contractor, you reach agreements with homeowners and businesses for roof installations, repairs, and replacements on a daily basis. A Roofing Contract protects both parties when a roof needs to be installed, repaired, or replaced.

What should a roofing contract include?

When you create your Roofing Contract you will have the ability to customize it to fit your situation. Typically, however, a Roofing Contract should include:

  • Details regarding the work to be performed and materials to be used
  • The total cost of the project
  • Timeline for payments
  • Timeline for commencement and completion of the work to be performed
  • Conditions and limitations
  • Guarantees, such as the duration the work is guaranteed against defects

Can you get out of a roofing contract?

One of the benefits of entering into a Roofing Contract is the certainty and clarity provided by a written contract. Including a provision that addresses disputes can go a long way toward avoiding the need for litigation if either party wants out of the contract. If you are unable to resolve a dispute, however, and you wish to completely revoke the contract you will need to consult with an attorney because you could face additional financial penalties if you breach the contract.

How much does a roofing owner make?

If you are a homeowner or business owner, you may wonder how much a roofing contractor makes. 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)

Can you negotiate with a roofer?

A homeowner or owner of commercial property can negotiate most terms of a Roofing Contract, also referred to as a Roofing Agreement or Roofing Service Contract. State law may impact certain aspects of the job; however, the price is always negotiable if you are paying out of pocket. If your insurance company is covering the cost, negotiating becomes more complicated because there is a third-party payor.
