I use a detailed estimates via an email template still refining it but it has been pretty successful. My biggest plus is a link to youtube video for demonstration. Just linked the video about two months ago since then it has been when can you get it done.

This was a different situation but it made me take a look at my estimates, it was a $1200 french drain installation my price was $100 lower than the other contractor but their estimate was detailed (such as we will put rocks around corrugated pipe, which i didn't do thinking that is common sense for a french drain) the potential customer went with the other contractor initially but needed to ask him a question and he never returned her call.

Bottom line is it looks like you know what your talking about and that you have done a few.

I jot down notes,phone numbers and roof measurements from pages on notepads. If I give an estimate for roof clean and they wait awhile I may have to re measure.

Descriptive quotes or proposals indicate you pay attention to detail..

I always write everything out even if its the obvious..Just comes off more professional and leaves most questions answered.

You can go to WWW.valueprint.com and look at their samples. I too write everything out. Our customers need to know whats being done and even if we don't
charge for a service, write down the No charge, it is a tax write off.
 
Thanks guys, it's in a carbon copy book just like my receipts, I write it one time and get three copies, customers tell us all the time how professional it looks, I'll take every edge I can get.
