Hiring a roofing contractor is tricky. It’s not uncommon to hear about roofing contractors who give the “taillight guarantee,” once you see their taillights, you’ll never see them again!
When you hire Affordable Quality Roofing (AQR), we go above and beyond the industry standard 5 to 10 year warranty.
Our workmanship is guaranteed for a full 25 years! We give that to you in writing, and stand behind it!
AQR has been a BBB Accredited Business since May 5, 1990, and have maintained an A+ BBB rating!
It’s no secret, when considering hiring a roofing contractor, “professionalism” doesn’t necessarily come to mind. Roofing contractors work on hot roofs all day, and tend to lack a professional reputation.
AQR is different! You’ll realize this from the first moment you meet a member of our team:
– Clean Cut – Our sales staff and installers dress appropriately and respectfully. With a clean disciplined look, not found in any other roofing companies.
– Respectful – Our roofing contractor crews treat you, your home, and your garden with respect and care.
– Reliable – Tired of no-show roofing contractors? AQR starts and finish jobs when we say we will.
– Employees – We consistently deliver because our crew are employees not contractors! This means high professional standards!
– Honesty – Our zero tolerance policy means you can trust our staff in and around your home!
Because no one plans for the sometimes unexpected expense of a new roof, AQR offers our own financing terms. No need to take on large loans or credit card debt! We offer a 4 or 8 month payment program:
4 month payment plans – homeowners make a 40% deposit at the beginning of the project, followed by 4 equal payments made by post-dated cheque.
8 month payment plans – homeowners make a 50% deposit at the beginning of the project, followed by 8 equal payments made by post-dated cheque.
AQR carries $2,000,000 in Liability Insurance and WorksafeBC Coverage, just in case!
The Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia (RCABC) provides savvy advice on best practices to hire a roofing contractor. Warning that not all roofing contractors are alike, and you should measure each roofing contractor on their own merit when deciding to hire a roofing contractor:
Are they permanent? Do they have a permanent address, telephone number, tax ID number and business license?
Do they carry liability insurance? Insist on seeing the insurance coverage and workers compensation certificates.
Do they have multiple quality references? Call these references! Beware of companies not willing to readily offer multiple references.
Are they licensed? Check the contractor is properly licensed or bonded.
Will they provide a written proposal? Is the proposal complete with descriptions of the work, specifications, procedures and completion dates?
Are they members of the regional or national industry associations?
What is their Better Business Bureau accreditation score? Call the BBB to confirm.
What is their quality control procedure? Ask about project supervision; ask for the name and experience of the person in charge.
What is their warranty? Carefully read and understand any roofing warranty offered, with a keen eye for exclusion clauses.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Keep a healthy skepticism about the roofing contractor with the lowest bid.
