Should I Get 3 Estimates

Screaming from the rooftop

If I have an Insurance Claim, should I get 3 estimates?

There is sometimes confusion that exists when faced with the question, “should I get three estimates?” On one hand, it is good to see what various Contractors have to offer. And during the Estimate process, you will undoubtedly meet a wide variety of salesmen with personality types, some you click with and some you do not. And while that process can be interesting, it can also be time-consuming, energy draining, and ultimately pointless. This is because the Insurance Company will generate their own price, regardless of what any Contractor says or writes, and so in one sense you are merely doing market research for the Insurance Company – wasting precious time that cannot be recouped, delaying your process, and offering up the danger that a low-bidder will be selected. And finding cheap Contractors should never be your goal as a homeowner.

Roofing Contractor prices vary widely, quite similar to any service business. But not all Construction Companies are the same. And when collecting stacks of estimates, there is always a looming temptation to select the lowest bidder. This is almost always a mistake. Two different roofing companies can supply the exact same material and job details on paper but go on to provide an entirely different service experience. In most cases, you are absolutely free to select any reputable, licensed and insured Roofing Contractor of your choosing. So choose the best.

You will want the highest quality material scope and selection – because only the best roofs will last.
