Not All Roofing Companies are created equally!

So What Do You Need To Know? What Questions should you ask? How do you find a professional roofer?

Major shingle manufacturers have qualification scales that require classroom work, field exams and proof of liability and compensation insurances. Many roofing companies do NOT maintain insurance on workers, do NOT have employees and do NOT have continuing education for all. At Bailiwick, we insist on roof related educational programs as well as SAFETY training- a priority for Bailiwick's employees.
Locally, we trust both the Certainteed and GAF manufacturers. For Certainteed please see this link to find professional contractors:

This is the top level CertainTeed roofing credential, and represents the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry. An SSR has shown extensive knowledge of shingle installation and quality through rigorous testing, and have provided CertainTeed with proof of workers’ compensation and liability insurance. Only an SSR can offer you the highest level of SureStart PLUS™ extended warranty coverage when an Integrity Roof System is installed on your home.

For GAF try this link: General Roofing INFO and to find a professional roofer, GAF has this to add:

GAF-Elk Master Elite™ roofing contractor are:

  • Fully licensed in their state (or local area) to perform roofing work*  
  • Adequately insured for your protection  
  • Have a proven reputation for providing quality roofing services throughout the community  
  • Committed to ongoing professional training to ensure quality installation

Because of GAF-Elk’s stringent standards, only the top 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as Master Elite™ contractors!

Choosing a GAF-Elk Master Elite™ contractor is your assurance that you’ll be dealing with a quality, reputable, and dependable professional contractor — not some “fly-by-nighter.”
Don’t trust your biggest asset to just any contractor.  Factory-certified Master Elite™ contractors are your best and safest choice!
So Questions start with insurance? employees? safety practices? We saw a competitors company WITHOUT staging on this roof:

Get a certificate of insurance in your name. Check with the Better Business Bureau about any contractor: BBB

Ask about whether or not sub-contractors are used OR employees- necessary to be employees to be covered by insurances. These insurances are costly, but show committment and security. By following these suggestions, you will pay ONE TIME for your roof and have a professional guarantee that is worth the paper it is written on.
