This video discusses new roof estimates and how they can be very confusing for consumers. Some homeowners have been completely baffled by the process because they’ve received many different estimates from roofers. Such clients didn’t really understand how that could happen.
Therefore, the video maker gave some tips for prospective roofing clients so that they’d have an easier time with the roofing companies. The first tip was to ensure that each roofing company used the same measurements. Many people assume they are all using the same measurements when they clearly are not. The measurements need to be the total square footage of the roof plus all of the lines.
The second tip is for the prospective customer to decide on the shingle manufacturer and model number that he or she wants. Sometimes, prospective clients get conflicting estimates because they don’t specify the manufacturer. The roofing company then chooses one and bases the estimates on the manufacturer they choose. The speaker suggests that the prospects take guidance from Google but don’t put too much faith into reviews and rankings from homeowners. He lists several companies that are excellent options for prospective homeowners to consider using for their roofing projects.
