During a recent roofing estimate, Bernard Balais, president and responsible managing employee of West Oahu Roofing Inc. was asked a very important question from a potential customer.

The potential customer asked, “I have received several roofing estimates for my roof from different companies. Why are the roofing prices very different from each company?”

Balais responds, “There are many reasons roofing prices can vary, but we will discuss three main reasons for price differences.”



Each roofing company has their preferred roofing manufacturer. Not all roofing material quality and durability is the same. Along with that, not all material pricing is the same. It is important when comparing roofing estimates to compare all aspects of materials when going over estimates.


All licensed and professional roofing companies must have workers’ compensation insurance and general liability insurance. Having these insurances increases pricing, but at the same time it ensures that if there is any type of accident at a job site — there is no liability put on the homeowner after the fact.


All licensed and professional roofing companies must abide by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards for safety, which means all employees must be trained and must utilize all fall protection safety protocols while working.
