The primary item on a roof substitution estimate is the actual roofing material. The estimate would list the manufacturer and the kind of shingles that the contractor will be using. The shingle style will also be illustrated. Architectonic or dimensional shingles are the most common. They create more interest and often mimic the appearance, such as slate or tile, of other roofing products. If design was part of the initial discussion, colour selection or choices could be included. The calculation would also mean the length of the warranty for that type from the manufacturer.

If your house has chimneys, dormers and walls, then you can see your estimate flickering. Flashing prevents water from seeping behind and under shingles, enabling water damage to the structure.

Usually, thin aluminium or galvanised steel sheets flash. Many talented sheet metal roofers will fashion their own. Flashing is constructed over joints in the roof & wall framework. Possible areas include hills, chimneys, dormers, walls, pipes, skylights, porches, decks, and edges. A new roof is also used for new flashes to be mounted. When the flash deteriorates or falls loose, it may cause serious harm to your house. It is important to ensure that it is properly assembled to avoid unnecessary damage. Underlaying is one thing that should be included in every estimate for roof replacement. Underlaying is a layer of protective material between the roof’s deck or plywood and the shingles. Often called felt paper, it is the first layer of waterproofing for your roof.
