Have you recently gotten a roofing quote that left you shocked?
It can feel disheartening to learn you have a quote for new roofing that is quite a bit different than what your neighbor or someone else you know recently paid for theirs. Of course, it could have swung the other way and made you overjoyed. Whichever way it went, you may be wondering why there is such a difference even though you called the same roofing company.
Here are a few factors that can affect your roofing quote to keep in mind:
- Roof Height– The taller your roof is, the more safety becomes a factor, and with added risk comes added cost. Getting the materials up to the roof is also more labor-intensive. Hence, a two-story (or higher) home will cost more for roofing.
- Material Choice– There are many price points when it comes to roofing materials. Not only is style a price factor, but also color in some instances. If you are trying to stay within a certain budget, don’t hesitate to ask your roofing company which materials are the most affordable.
- Timing– Prices for materials, labor, and supplies can vary widely from one month to the next. If it has been a while since their roof was done and your quote is higher, it could have been because of a price increase anywhere along the supply chain.
Here at Carolina Home Specialists, we always give the best price we can for roofing, and we are more than willing to explain what goes into your quote and whether there are any options that could reduce the cost to suit your budget.
We also want to let you know that price is not the only thing you should consider. Someone else might give you a lower price for roofing, but if they lack our experience and quality workmanship, you aren’t getting the best return on your investment.
