First of all, when you call someone for an estimate or quotation, make sure at that time that the company has WCB Coverage, Liability Insurance and are good standing members of the Better Business Bureau. This is a company you can trust.

Secondly ask if they will be actually going on the roof, so he or she can fully understand the unique issues faced on your roof.

Also ask if you will get a written quotation at the time of the inspection. Now is a good time to voice any concerns you may have regarding the project, including any special products you are interested in.

When the roof is replaced, it should all be replaced, including Vents, Whirly Birds and all ancillary flashings ( plumbing stack flashings etc.) Only Step Flashings etc. and  Chimney Flues should remain as existing, however this is a good time to change that as well.

Once you have decided on a roofing contractor in Jacksonville Fl, get a written sales order stating what work will be performed.
