“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer and those you love near you” – traditional Irish blessing
For most people, their biggest investment is in their house, and what protects that house and the people in it from the elements more than anything is the roof. For most people, the biggest expense they’ll have after purchasing their house is replacing a bad roof. At Alpine, we take our role in this seriously and strive to make the customer feel as comfortable as possible with the entire process. We’ve replaced over 340 roofs in our area, and with each one, try to make sure that we never have to come back again by doing it right the first time. All our roofs come with a lifetime workmanship warranty from Alpine, and, because of our certifcations with manufacturers, the best warranties available.
WITH ALPINE YOU’LL GET:
AN HONEST APPRAISAL OF YOUR ROOF.
Some people call us because they think they need a new roof when it actually has many years of life left to it. Some problems in attics or vaulted ceilings are a result of condensation/venting/
insulation but are mistakenly diagnosed as a roof problem. Sometimes the best solution happens to be a simple, cheap solution. At Alpine, we’d rather lose a sale by being honest, then sell you something you don’t need now. We’ve found that, in the long term, it’s also good business.
When you call Alpine 8AM-5PM, M-F you’ll be able to speak to a person who can schedule a time for us to come out and look at your roof. We’ll show up on time, take measurements, photos and video of the roof, explain all your options to you and send you detailed proposals within a day or two. We don’t expect our customers to be experts in house construction, and we’ll give however much time it takes to explain how it works. Many of our customers are people from downstate who have second homes in the area. Some of them we’ve never met. With the videos and photos we take before, during and after the job and good communication, someone who doesn’t have the time to come upstate, meet with contractors, oversee the job, etc., can have their roof done and feel comfortable watching the progress on their computer at home or work.
Almost any contractor, good or bad, can give you a list of a few names of people who can recommend them. At Alpine, we’ll give you a list of 70+ of our past customers with their phone numbers, in the area. And these are only customers who have told us, without us asking them, to be put on the list. If you want to see some roofs we’ve done that are closest to you, we’ll give you some addresses to go take a look yourself.
70% of roof leaks within the first 25 years occur from poor workmanship, especially in detail areas: around chimneys, in valleys, dormers, where roofs meet walls.
The people who work for Alpine are long-time employees who are trained to do only the highest quality work. With employees, we value honesty and reliability above all else. We don’t use any subcontractors for residential jobs.
THE BEST WARRANTIES YOU CAN FIND
Every new roof gets our lifetime workmanship warranty. We’re the only contractor in the area that we know of who has earned Certainteed’s highest rating – “5 Star Master Shingle Applicator”. With this rating, Certainteed warranties our workmanship on shingle jobs for 25 years. With metal roofs, no one has more experience than Alpine. We work cleanly and efficiently, with good-sized crews. We work full days and don’t leave your job to work on another. An average size- house rarely takes us more than 2 days.

A FAIR PRICE
Probably not the cheapest, but almost certainly not the highest. It’s common that we find people getting estimates at double ours. Many homeowners are baffled by the wide range in estimates, and might even opt for a higher price because they think that translates to a higher-quality job.
Basically, you have two choices in getting someone to do your roof: One, an established, fully insured roofing contractor. Two, a guy with a ladder, a truck and some tools. The second choice will almost certainly be cheaper – by not having to pay sky-high New York Worker’s Compensation and liability insurance rates for roofing, and not having other associated overhead costs. The problems arise if someone gets hurt on the job, if a downpour happens when the roof is open, if the roof is not done right. Too many people lose everything when they’re sued by an uninsured worker who gets hurt on their property. Too many people end up having to replace in three years a roof which should have lasted 30.
