Roofing Contractors who will give you a quote over the phone without meeting you or visiting your property should be avoided. This is very unprofessional.
We do not give estimates over the phone. There are too many variables to simply give an accurate quote. We will meet you in person, ask you specific questions to gain a full understanding of your roofing needs and then provide you with a written detailed estimate including our detailed preparation and installation procedure for a typical home. We provide each homeowner we meet with our written installation process for the type of roof we recommend.This allows the homeowner to easily understand the cost of installing a new roof on their home and it allows them to easily compare our proposal with another proposal.
All of our agreements are in writing with a price guarantee for the work and materials specified.
Yes. Getting the Certificate of Insurance directly from the contractor’s insurance agent will provide you with assurance that the coverage is current.
Professional roofing contractors adhere to the following guidelines:
Ask every roofing contractor if roofing is listed as their primary business on their worker’s compensation insurance policy. If they don’t list roofing as the primary business, this can expose the homeowner to additional liability in the case of an accident. Athens Roofing, Inc. specifically lists roofing as the primary business on our workers compensation policy.
Unfortunately, many roofing contractors don’t classify their crew members properly so if they get hurt on your job, your homeowner’s insurance will be responsible or at the very least you will have a messy claim to deal with.
If a roofing or home remodeling contractor is unable to produce the appropriate insurance documents, do not hire them as you may be responsible for any injuries or other accidents that occur.
Yes and here are the reasons why we do it:
Yes. A written price and satisfaction guarantee is your only protection against faulty workmanship, substitute products and hidden charges.
We diligently examine every roof but occasionally we will find rotted plywood at the edges due to a prior defective job. When this happens we will need to adjust our price to include replacement of additional plywood. We do preserve the removed sheets for your inspection.
We don’t make money on installing the extra plywood due to the extra time it takes to get it and install it. As a responsible roofing contractor, we have to replace it.
We make extensive use of tarps to protect your close plantings.
This procedure provides additional insurance that your plants and shrubs that are close to your home will be protected. In most cases, the use of tarps to protect your yard prevents any trash from ever hitting the ground. The trash goes straight from the roof, into our wheelbarrow and into the proper receptacle.
This insures that the customer’s home is ready for use at the beginning and end of each day.
We offer a 15-year Worry Free Roofing Warranty on labor/installation on all new complete re-roofing projects. Our warranty is 2 to 3 times longer than most of our competitors.
This labor warranty on the installation of your new roof is the most important thing that protects you from unexpected problems in the future. Not only will faulty installation lead to unwanted problems in the future, but it will also void your manufacturer's material warranty.
