Ask the Insurance Question

When you arrange home repairs or improvements, you'll probably ask about the contractor's experience, capabilites, price range and delivery schedule. A question that homeowners often neglect may be even more important: "Do you have liability and accident insurance?"

Many small operators work on a wing and a prayer. They hope nobody will get hurt on the job at your house, and they don't bother with insurance. But hope is no substitute for real protection.

If something does go wrong, it can become your problem. (Click this link for a painful example: http//www.professionaldoordealer.com/news/2012/01/handyman-sues-homeowner-because-of-garage-door-accident.aspx.) An uninsured contractor or his or her employees can sue you if injured on your property. Costs may be covered by your homeowner's coverage - and when your insurance pays, your future premiums may go up. Even worse, if your coverage isn't high enough, you might be on the hook personally to make up the difference.

At ABE Doors & Windows, we accept the need to protect our workers and our customers. That's why all our crews are covered by a million dollars in insurance. This is nothing more or less than behaving responsibly toward the people who keep us in business.

In Pennsylvania, a contractor can't be certified without meeting the state's insurance requirements. If you hire someone without certification, they may lack insurance, too. Why take the chance? There are many reasons to go with ABE Doors & Windows - and the fact that we carry substantial insurance coverage is a big one. Whoever you use, ask about the contractor's insurance coverage and have him or her prove it to you by showing a certificate of insurance before the start of the job.

Garage Doors of Distinction from Raynor

 There are garage doors ... and then there are garage doors. Anyone seeking something that really adds to the design quality and beauty of a home should consider the Distinctions Series from Raynor.

Distinctions Series garage doors utilize select, high-quality materials. They're built to the highest standards of craftsmanship. Just as important, they offer many choices in color, finish, style and detail - so much so that a door can be tailored to perfectly complement your home design and landscaping.

Among the outstanding choices in the series:

- Arbor Shore. This collection features stainable, vertical grain cut lumber, true-divided built-in windows (known in architectural terms as lites), and a consistent wood tone throughout - at prices that are competitive with any comparable doors on the market.

- American Rivers. These solid-wood carriage-house doors include hand-forged hardware and architectural glass options for a custom handcrafted look.

- Timber Bay. In swing-up, swing-out, accordion and bi-fold styles, these doors deliver the beauty of Western Red Cedar and African Mahogany - ideally suited for older and newer homes.

- River Pointe Carriage House Doors. This carriage door line makes outstanding features and quality available at an affordable price level. Also available at modest cost are Raynor's StreamWood, RockCreeke and StyleView collections, each providing exceptional appearance, durability and overall value.

In wood, steel or aluminum, a Raynor Distinctions Series custom model is not just another garage door. This series delivers the finest features the industry has to offer, along with the widest range of design options available. See for yourself - the ABE Doors & Windows showroom at 6776 Hamilton Boulevard features a full-size Distinctions Series ArborShore door in beautiful natural wood.
