At Above It All Roofing and Construction, they know that choosing the perfect contractor can be a whole other job in itself.  That’s why they’ve put together a list of things that you should look into before booking.  Look closely into these 8 things, and you’ll be sure to have the perfect fit for a contractor!
Insurance
This is essential to protect not only your property, but you as well from unforeseen accidents that may happen during your roof replacement project.  Reputable companies should carry workers compensation insurance to cover their workers.  Be aware that if the roofing contractor does not have workman’s compensation insurance and a worker gets hurt on your job, you could be held responsible.  Reputable roofing companies also carry adequate liability insurance.  If a contractor damages your neighbor’s property and does not have liability insurance, that liability applies to you.  For extra peace of mind, ask the contractor for proof of all of their insurances as well as the name of the insurance company and call to verify they have both coverage’s. Some companies will buy coverage, receive the proper documentation, then stop paying so that it appears they are covered, when in fact they are not.
Licensing
This  is essential to confirm that the roof replacement is performed by qualified workers.  As you compare roofing companies, ensure that the contractor is appropriately licensed as a Roofing Contractor and offers current, available proof of their licensing.
Warranties
These will ensure that the investment you just made in your home is being protected.  Knowing what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.  How long can you expect your roof shingles to last?  What happens if there is a problem with the roof installation? Are the LIFETIME shingles really covered for a lifetime?  Does their warranty cover every aspect  of the roof from start to finish and the complete roofing system?  GAF provides the best roofing warranties in the industry.  Being a GAF Master Elite Contractor, Above It All can offer you the best warranties.
Workmanship Coverage
Many roofing contractors provide their own warranty against errors in workmanship, sometimes for as long as 10+ years.  Obviously that coverage is only good as long as the company stays in business.  Since roofing is a high turnover business, the majority of roofing contractors are out of business within five years – far less than the life of your new roof – making their warranty worthless  and leaving you no where to turn in the event you have a workmanship problem. GAF offers a Golden Pledge Limited Warranty.  Whether or not your contractor remains in business, GAF will stand behind the contractors workmanship for 25 years!  The warranty even includes an inspection by GAF’s factory-certified inspectors after your new roof has been completed to ensure proper installation.  Available exclusively through GAF Master Elite Contractors.
Material Defect Coverage
As far as we know, all roofers provide a warranty against manufacturing defects for their roofing products, although your exact coverage will vary depending on brand.  Each warranty carries its own specific terms and conditions, so it’s important to read each warranty carefully.  Shingles can warranty for up to 30 years, while some only a few months.
Ratings
These are an important tool that can tell you about the type of work and experiences previous customers have had with a company.  As you compare other companies, be sure that they are in good standing with no complaints on file or with good resolutions confirmed.  When it comes to ratings, be sure to check the major ones such as BBB, Google Reviews, GAF Website and the company’s website.  Also, be sure to utilize a reference list if they offer one.
Experience
This is important to know the quality of the roof installation.  Above It All was established in 2003, but their installers, staff and representatives have over 20 years of experience.  They are also trained and certified in everything that they do.
Peace of Mind
If a company con perform all of the above and provide the proper documentation to back them up, then they will not only leave you with a superior, quality roof, but with a peace of mind as well.  Knowing that you don’t have to worry about a company and the work they are doing can’t be bought but with Above It All they guarantee you ALL OF THE ABOVE!
