Finding the Right Roofer for the Job

When it comes to your roof, you want to make sure the job is being handled by a professional, who is knowledgeable and experienced. You want someone you can trust. Today's blog from your Lake of the Ozarks roofing company offers a list of questions you want to ask a roofer before hiring them.

Question #1: Do you have the necessary licenses and insurance required for a roofing contractor in this area?

Roofing can be a dangerous job, that requires the proper training, licenses and insurance. You want to make sure they have a current license, general liability insurance and workman's comp insurance. Be sure to ask for the relevant paperwork as proof. At Above & Beyond Roofing, we carry $2 million in insurance and workman's comp for all employees.

Question #2: How long have you been in the roofing business? How much experience do your employees have? 

Your roof is the part of your home that protects everything else and the home's contents. You want to make sure that whoever is up there on your roof knows what they are doing. Be sure to ask how long the roofing company has been in business; you don't want some fly by night company that will take your money and run. You also want to make sure their employees are experienced. Our Lake of the Ozarks roofing team has more than 100 years' combined experience in the roofing industry. The owner alone has more than 20 years of experience. Above & Beyond Roofing has also been in business since 2000, and operating in the Lake of the Ozarks area since 2004.

Question #3: Can you provide any references for your work? 

An established company will have a list of references for you to contact or customer testimonials available for you to read. You want to know what others think of the company's work for ease of mind when hiring them. If those around you have had a good experience, you're likely to as well.

While roofs are made to last for many, many years to come, it's important that you understand your warranty. Manufacturer defects are easily possible, and may not be found until after the roof's been installed for awhile. You also want to ask about the warranty on the craftsmanship and installation as well. Be sure you understand the terms and length of the warranty, as well as who to contact about warranty claims. Due to the fact that Above & Beyond Roofing is a Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractor with Owen's Corning and a TAMKO Pro, we are able to offer some great warranties through these companies.
