To become a Preferred Contractor with Owens Corning, we had go through a rigorous verification process. Owen’s Corning checks every Preferred Contractor’s General Liability Insurance, Worker’s Compensation Insurance, and Auto Policy. Owen’s Corning also checks trade references and contractor’s licenses. Finally, the company personally inspects the work of their Preferred Contractors.
Once a contractor is accepted into the Owen’s Corning Preferred Contractor network, the contractor is able to give warranties to their customers, guaranteeing the workmanship of the contractor. These warranties are issued directly by Owen’s Corning.
So, on top of the standard 10-year workmanship warranty provided by American Construction, our customers may also receive the 10-year workmanship warranty from Owen’s Corning. This gives our customers the unique opportunity to have two layers of warranty protection.
Owen’s Corning is one of the largest roofing manufacturers in the world. Many are familiar with Owen’s Corning Pink Panther, a brand that is synonymous with quality. Owen’s Corning does $6.4 billion a year in revenue, employs 19,000 people around the globe, and has been a Fortune 500 Company every year since the list was created in 1955.
American Construction prides itself on the quality of its work. We strip all client roofs right to the decking. Upon careful inspection of the decking, any damaged sheathing is replaced. We always use real plywood CDX sheathing. We never cut corners with Oriented Strand Board (OSB).
Every roof we do we protect with ice and water shield. We use a premium synthetic underlayment, and we always use ridge ventilation. Our Owen’s Corning Durations Shingles are the best on the market, employing SureNail technology, triple layer protection, excellent adhesive power, and maximum wind resistance.
As a thought experiment, let’s go through some criteria for choosing a roofing contractor and how we at American Construction measure up against
Insurance is a must
“Make sure that your contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. Ask to see the certificates and actually call the insurance carrier to confirm that they are valid.“
Part of our being licensed roofing contractors in Cherry Hill NJ, as well as our partnership with Owens’ Corning is having insurance for everyone involved with our company: our workers, our clients, etc. With us as your roofing contractor, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be safe from liability; and that we are ready to back up the services that we provide you with a solid guarantee
Choose local contractor
“Make sure that the company that you choose is local. This means that they are not just operating locally now, but have an established business and reputation in the community.”
We take pride in serving Cherry Hill and the surrounding NJ communities. For us, our neighbors are partners in our company’s growth, as much as we strive to contribute in our community through out world-class services. For us at American Construction, you, our neighbors, are family. And for us, family is important.
Price isn’t everything
“Never choose a company based on price. Cheap bids drive down the market and anyone with overhead and proper insurance has to establish pricing to cover such costs.”
Cost-cutting will result in compromised results and potential problems in the future. That’s why quality will always be a priority when it comes to our services. Having said that, we do offer options that will not only fit your needs, but will also fit your budget.
Avoid storm chasers
“Steer clear of the knock-on-the-door, ‘We were in your neighborhood’ roofers. This is just canvassing and selling. Pick a roofer from a referral or a sign in your area that has a satisfied client on the other end.“
With the reputation we’ve built as professional roofers in the 25 years that we’ve been in the industry, we let the quality of our work speak for us. Our customer reviews in sites such as Yelp and Home Advisor is proof of our consistent commitment to delivering the best service to our clients.
Get job details in writing
“Both belong to you and you should be in control. We suggest that you don’t give funds until the work is complete. Make sure that you are satisfied with the result and that the terms of payment were discussed prior to the job and adhered to by both parties.“
With us at American Construction, everything you’ll get from us will be above board and set in paper. We don’t hesitate with this because we are confident that we’ll be able to deliver from our end and that you’ll be satisfied with our services.
Communication is paramount
“Did they return your calls? Did they send the documentation that you asked them to send? Did they follow through? If you answered “no” to these questions, then make sure you communicate your concerns to the company representative.”
Aside from making every aspect of the service we provide for you being transparent, we will also have our project coordinators and quality inspectors on site during the entire duration of the project. They’ll be more than happy to coordinate with you and help you out with any concerns or questions you may have about what’s going on.
