Roof Inspection Report

Inspection reports, whether they are completed before, after, or during the service, allows businesses to document information regarding their services, products, and conditions of the on-site premises.

Inspection reports also give businesses with supplemental channels to communicate with customers. In the roofing industry, delivering excellent customer service is the key to sustainability. By emailing your customers frequent progress reports and updates on services, you will be able to provide your customers with more transparency into your team's progress.

For a successful roofing inspection report, here are some examples of essential information that should be collected in the field:

  • Number of Stories
  • Age of Roof
  • Material of Roof
  • Type of Decking
  • Type of Edge Metal
  • Pitch
  • Drip Edge
  • Type of Ventilation
  • Number of ACs

Roofing Estimate Form & Bid Proposal Form

Often times, roofing companies make the mistake of combining the Roofing Estimate Form with the Contract Form. This is usually for convenience - two forms in one.

Instead, try creating a separate Roofing Estimate Form. Using a separate Roofing Estimate Form is important to the 'selling' aspect of your service. While you're providing an estimate for your customer, you want to provide them with a professional presentation of your compelling value proposition. Including the contract and legal terms in the form detracts from the your statement.


  • Description of Your Selling Point (why they should choose you)
  • Description of Scope of Work
  • Photos (If necessary)
  • Estimated Start & End Date
  • Materials Needed
  • Warranty Information
  • Amount of Estimate
  • Signature

The pre construction checklist ultimately helps you properly address avoidable problems. It is another line of defense to protect your business from potential liability issues. A successful list will include risk and safety assessments, list of needed resources, and a thorough visual documentation of the jobsite before the construction.

In addition to avoiding safety breaches, the checklist ensures that you provide your customers with a smooth and successful home improvement experience. By outlining and communicating your needs with your customers beforehand, they will be happy to know what is expected on their part to ensure fast and quality service.

Roof Contract Form - Insurance Contingency

An Insurance Contingency form is one of the most important contract forms you should require for any service. It outlines the agreement between the insured and roofing company about expectations on insurance coverage. And it states that you will complete the job for what the insurance company allows.

Why is this form so crucial? If you do not have an agreement with your customers in place, you can be doing the legwork to get their insurance claim approved only to lose them to a lower costing contractor. With an insurance contingency form, your customers will be more obligated to pay you for the work you have started.

With that said, this form should be followed up with a legal contract containing all state and federal requirements. 

  • I understand this contract is contingent on my Insurance company paying for property damage related to a claim filed for this property.

  • I understand this contract will be void if my Insurance Company disallows the claim and Mat’s Roofers chooses at that point to not move forward with the claim process.

  • I understand this contract is hiring Mat’s Roofers as my General Contractor responsible for all work lined out in the insurance scope of loss.

  • I understand that cost of this contract will be equal to the replacement cost value lined out in the insurance scope of loss which include my financial obligation to pay my deductible.

  • I authorize Mat’s Roofers to speak directly to my Insurance Company for any supplementation or processing of this claim.

  • I authorize Mat’s Roofers to speak directly to my Mortgage Company if insurance proceed checks are 3rd party and have my Mortgage Company name on them.

  • I understand that Mat’s Roofers or any of its representatives are NOT public adjuster nor acting as one for this or any property.

  • I have read and agree to all the terms and conditions of this contract.

  • Signature
