Roofers may ask for a small deposit that could be around 50% of the full quote but you shouldn’t pay much more than this at the beginning. Roofers should never ask for a full payment upfront. It also depends on the size of the project. Larger projects may require larger deposits. Regardless of the deposit amount, remember this: Pay everything with a check or credit NOT cash.
“Remember: Most reputable roofers won’t ask for more than 1/2 deposit for work to be completed. Don’t advance!“.

It’s pretty common in the industry for some roofers to ask up to 50% the day the work starts and the other 50% when the work is done. If you do this, make sure you have a firm date for the work to begin as well as some way to cancel the payment if the work isn’t completed or the roofing company goes out of business before it has begun.
