Well-Established West Michigan Roofers
As noted in other blogs, Above Roofing and Exteriors walks many roofs and evaluates the life and health of hundreds of roofs in the Grand Rapids and greater West Michigan area every year. In doing so, we see too many avoidable problems West Michigan roofers male when they put the roof on the house that is now experiencing leakage. When you hire a contractor to work on your most valuable investment, your home, how can you be assured that that contractor will do good work?
These days there are some referral services (like Angie’s List, Home Advisor, and Thumbtack) who, through both certification checks and reviews, help a homeowner find and evaluate reputable contractors. Other organizations like Better Business Bureau keep records of complaints as well as positive reviews made about contractors and give those contractors ratings. The internet allows the public posting and easy access to ratings and reviews of former customers of contractors. You can check out what others have said about a company at places like Google, Yellow Pages, Yelp, etc.
Well-established, reputable contractors develop relationships with the material manufacturers whose products they use. These relationships often include training the company provides for installing their products as well as dialogue between the company and the contractor. A manufacturer usually gives a rating for contractors they know who install their products.

CertainTeed knows who we are and that we do our work to the highest standards. We are also a 5-Star installer of Velux skylights, the only 5-Star installer in West Michigan.
Manufacturers can rate contractors and even provide warranties of their quality, but the essential warranty that a homeowner should check out is that of the contractor. Ask to see, in writing, a statement of how long the contractor guarantees their craft. This statement is the most reliable indicator of how confident a contractor is. Check the fine print to see if your warranty is transferable, should you sell the house.
