I was wondering how detailed an estimate for a new metal roof should be. (replacing asphalt shingle - single story) How detailed should an estimate be in terms of materials,etc. Are there particular items one should look for in the estimate? What should I expect from a quality contractor's estimate? Thanks

A Qualified Contractor's estimate will include everything he intends to do. There shouldn't be anything you ask about that he tells you that's just a part of it, I was going to tell you. You imagine how it will look finished and his detail should take you to that point, even how the trims and flashings are done. Wade

I will second what Wade says. If at all possible, leaving nothing to chance ... it should list types of flashings they will use, whether they are manufacturer of field-formed ... it should also include what warranties come with the product and the labor. It should specify the excat product being installed and the color.
