Below are some of the basic qualifications that you should require of any roofing contractor that you work with.
A professional roofing contractor should have all of the following licenses:
Alaska Contractor's License (Premier #CONS26783)
Alaska Business License (Premier #273157)
MOA Contractor's License (Premier #CON2726)
Premier Roofing maintains all of the required (current) licenses at all times.
You can utilize the State of Alaska database to verify that a contractor has both an Alaska Contractor License and Alaska Business License here: Alaska License Verification
You should also verify how long a contractor has been in business.
A professional roofing contractor should maintain the following insurance for their protection, but more importantly, for your protection.
General liability insurance, with adequate coverage for your protection. The State has a low requirement for this coverage; $20K for property damage, and $50/100K for injury.
Premier Roofing maintains G/L insurance limits of $1 Mil per occurrence at all times.
Workers compensation insurance; the State does not require proof of this Insurance if a contractor certifies that there are no employees of the company. An unscrupulous contractor may fraudulently make this certification to avoid having this costly insurance.
Premier Roofing has active workers comp insurance at all times.
There are a variety of reasons why a contractor may be uninsured or underinsured; the inability to qualify for the insurance coverage or the extremely high costs of roofing insurance are a couple of the most common reasons.
Remember, if your contractor is uninsured or underinsured, you will likely be responsible for any property damage or injuries, including injuries to uninsured workers, that may occur. Because homeowners insurance normally excludes such accidents, it is important to verify that your roofing contractor is adequately insured. Premier Roofing will provide a certificate of insurance upon request.
A building permit is required for all residential and commercial re-roof projects with a value of $5,000+.
Premier Roofing will procure the required re-roof permit from the MOA.
