Including ice and water barrier, synthetic paper, ridge vents,drip edge etc.

This should explain the job step by step. It should also should detail “what if?” scenarios such as rotted wood or other unexpected circumstances. It should explain in detail how the company will be handling chimneys,pipes,and other edges. There should be mention of exceptions or what the contractor is not doing (example: garage not included).The customer should have a clear idea of the work being performed.
Warranties and Gurantees
should be spelled out clearly.

this section should clearly explain the estimated price and payment terms. Again make sure you know exactly what is included in the proposal and what is not.
A proposal should be easy to read and follow. It should be written in a manner that would want you to do business with the firm.
