What is a roofing contract?

Roofing jobs by their very nature are very delicate with highly skilled tradespeople required to complete the work successfully. Whether it’s roof restoration, plumbing, painting, or tiling, each project needs rigorous planning to keep the wheels in motion.
The contractor is responsible for the execution of the roofing project, whether it’s commercial or residential. They bring in all of the people they need to get the job done, and they charge the client a fee for the work in exchange.

A roofing contract is a formal agreement between contractor and client detailing the terms and conditions as it relates to the work that needs to be performed.

Why are roofing contracts necessary?

Roofing projects can quickly get confusing if they’re not managed properly.
  • • Indecisive clients keep changing their minds throughout the job.
  • • Subcontractors face uncontrollable weather conditions.
  • • Budgets get blown out as the work takes longer than forecasted.
  • • Clients or contractors miss payments.
We recognize that a roofing contract agreement is not the answer to every situation. However, it’s a vital document to create necessary boundaries and accountability for all parties involved.
If disputes do arise, the roofing contract will be referenced in legal proceedings.

Best practices when using a sample roofing contract form

Merely using a compliant roofing contract template, already puts you in a much better position. However, we’ve identified some best practices to get the most out of your document.

What is the work to be completed?

As a contractor, you must be crystal clear on the scope of your prospective clients’ roofing job. You’ll need to rely on your experience and the building designs to detail your responsibilities accurately.
Another crucial step is to capture all of the relevant information about a project so you can provide a realistic scope of what needs to be done. Below are some questions you can ask clients about their roofing projects so you can identify any potential issues upfront.
  • • Have you worked on a roofing or building project before? If so, what was the experience like?
  • • What's your budget?
  • • Who do we ask to make decisions?
  • • Is anyone going to be occupying the premises during the project?
Use any combination of these questions and the building plans, to provide a realistic scope for the project.

What are your payment terms?

No doubt, your quote for a roofing project is at the forefront of any clients’ minds.
We’ve found with roofing jobs; it’s best to keep your pricing simple and charge an hourly rate for contractors to complete the work.
Then when you get to the end of the month, charge your client for hours worked in the period until the project is finished.
Alternatively, you could charge a fixed price for the job. The risk with this approach is that it’s tough to quote roofing jobs as there are so many variables, which means you could either over or undercharge clients.

What's the process for amendments?

No matter how much planning you do with clients, sometimes, you’ll still need to change course to finish the roof. Bad contractors and poor weather are a few of many examples of variables forcing you to change up the project.
But perhaps one of the most common and painful variables is your clients’ expectations. Clients can change their minds about their commitments to the roofing project.
Project changes cost you time and money. To reduce this risk, use your roofing contract template to create a process for how all parties address amendments.
For example, if a client requests to change the scope of the job, add a clause where all parties must sign off on the proposed changes before proceeding work. Contractors and clients can then take time to assess changes in budget, human resources, materials, or any factors that would influence the completion of the job.
Having a robust revision process protects roofing contractors from wasting time and holds the client accountable for their requests.
