Why are the estimates for my roof replacement so different?

Each contractor has a different method of giving estimates, so a number of factors play a role in the differences you will get in roof quotes.

The main thing to be wary of, is to not choose the cheapest or the most expensive. Carefully read the written estimate and take note of what each company excludes or includes in their quote. They should list the type of material they will provide, if vents and flashings are included, if they offer a warranty, when their start and finish date is (this depends on how experienced they are), and whether they will fix any landscaping that got damaged throughout the roof replacement process. Once you have determined which companies provide which services, you will be able to make an educated decision as to which company best suits your needs.
