4 Characteristics of a Great Roofer

As you've probably seen by now, Above & Beyond Roofing was recently recognized at the best roofer in Missouri! How did we get there? Keep reading to learn about some of the characteristics that make a roofer great.

1. Comes Highly Recommended for Quality Work. 


Our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company prides itself in high quality work. Don't just take our word for it, ask our customers.

When it comes to your roof, you want to make sure you're hiring a company that will do the job right, so be sure to do your research first.

2. Provides Professional and Personal Service. 


Roofers come to your house to complete the work. Therefore, aside from quality work, you want quality service. You want to hire a company that shows professionalism, and provides great, personal service. Find a roofer that will answer their phone, be there when they say they will, provide an accurate estimate and get the job done right and on time. At Above & Beyond Roofing, the owner Ben deals personally with all of his clients.

3. Is Licensed and Insured. 


Before hiring a roofing contractor, you want to ensure they are both licensed and insured. There are a lot of scams in the contracting world that you have to watch out for. Have your prospective roofer show you their license and proof of insurance. Workers compensation and liability insurance are a must in this industry. A great roofer will also be able to provide recommendations and awards from roofing manufacturers. For example, Above & Beyond Roofing is proud to be recognized as one of few Owen's Corning Platinum Preferred Contractors.

4. Demonstrates Knowledge and Experience. 


Roofing is one of those jobs that requires quite a bit of experience. While new roofers could do a fine job, you're better off going with a company that you know has the knowledge and experience to take care of all your roofing needs.

3 Tips for Selecting the Best Roofing Color for Your Home

When installing a new roof on your home, you have a wide variety of color choices. Not only do you want to pick a color you like, but you need to consider resale value. Today's blog from your favorite Lake of the Ozarks roofer offers a few tips for selecting the best roofing color for your home.

1. Consider Heat Retention. 


The color of your roof can have a significant effect on heat retention. During the summer months at the Lake of the Ozarks, outdoor temperatures can get quite high. Studies have shown that the wood under black shingles can get up to 10 degrees hotter than the wood under white shingles. Darker roofs tend to attract more heat. Therefore, you might want to consider something a little lighter. You'll be thankful when you get that summer utility bill.

2. Compliment Your Siding. 


While you want your roof to compliment the siding on your home, you don't want them to match. Choosing the exact same shade for your shingles and your siding won't look as good as it sounds. The most visually appealing roof and siding combinations are colors that are complementary. In addition, if your siding is busy, like brick or stone, you want to choose a simple single color for your roof. Two multi-color combinations will make your home look very busy. Not only should the colors compliment each other, but also the patterns.

3. Think About Painting. 


Keep in mind that painting the siding, doors and windows on your home is easier than changing out your roof. Therefore, don't choose your roof color solely based on those features of your home that can be painted a different color. As long as your home isn't brick or stone, you have a little more flexibility with roof color. You can always paint those other features of your home to compliment your roof better later. If you do have a brick or stone house, be sure to compare a sample shingle to the it before making a final decision.

For help with determining the best shingles for your new roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact Above & Beyond Roofing. We can offer suggestions and provide you with a free cost estimate. Give us a call at 573-302-0354 to discuss your roofing project today!

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Gutters this Fall

The fall season is upon us, and that means more opportunities for debris to clog up your gutters. The falling leaves can easily gather in the gutters prevent water from being able to drain off your roof property. With the change of seasons, it's important to clean and maintain your gutters. Our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company is here to help you make sure they're ready for the winter ahead.

Cleaning Your Gutters


One of the most important fall home maintenance tasks is cleaning out your gutters. It's also one that could easily be overlooked. Removing debris from your gutters and downspouts is critical to preventing water damage to your home. If water cannot drain off your roof properly, it can pool up. Those pools of water will cause wear and tear on your roof that can eventually cause a roof leak. Once water gets into your home, even more damage can occur. Cleaning your gutters twice a year is one of the best things you can do to protect your roof. When cleaning your gutters, wear gloves to protect your hands. You might also consider wearing safety goggles as the movement of debris could stir up dust. Use caution when standing on a ladder, and don't lean too far trying to reach more debris.

Maintaining Your Gutters


Not only is cleaning out your gutters important, but ensuring they are in good condition is also key to protecting your roof and home. Over time, especially after having gone through summer storms, your gutters and downspouts can easily become loose. Depending on the severity of storms in your area, your gutters could even become damaged, bent or punctured. High winds or heavy hail storms can easily cause damage to your gutter system. Be sure that any necessary repairs are made before winter arrives. You want to make sure your gutters can easily do their job of keeping water off your roof and away from the foundation of your home.

If you've failed to clean your gutters in the past and are concerned about the integrity of your roof, contact Above & Beyond Roofing at 573-302-0354 to schedule your free roof inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks. We're here for all your roofing needs, from repairs and maintenance to complete re-roofs and new construction.
