Our History

In the summer of 1987, at the age of 16 I went to work for my dad’s business, Armao & Kleitz Roofing in Richmondville, N.Y. I tore off shingles all morning and carried bundles of new ones up the ladder all afternoon. For three summers of high school I did that for $4.50, $5.00, and $5.50 an hour. The second and third summers I learned to do other tasks including installing some shingles.

Fast forward to 1996. I was a young man with a young wife and two kids. I was working a full time job, going to college, and working side jobs like lawn mowing, cutting and selling firewood, tree work, anything and everything I could find to make ends meet. I decided maybe I could make more money on the side roofing than all these other side jobs so I ran an ad. Back then there were a lot of new homes being built so I did a lot of new construction. There were no weather worries and I could work between my college classes and full time job. Usually it would take me a week or so to roof an average 2500 square foot steep new house by myself. At first I would do about one a month. Then it became two, then three, then as many as possible, working every spare minute. In those early days I would use as much of the money as possible to buy equipment and tools. Every job I did I would buy something I needed. Sometimes I would get a friend or two to help me on a Saturday so I didn’t always work by myself.

By the summer of 1999 I couldn’t keep up with two jobs anymore. I had graduated from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga with a degree in business in May. I was still working 40 hours a week at my old job and sometimes more than that roofing. I decided something had to give so in September I quit my other job to concentrate on roofing full time. 15 years later we are still at it.

I still roof almost every day and every job. This hands on approach is what separates us from other roofing companies when it comes to quality. I personally train and oversee all employees. We have worked hard to improve our system to provide a quick, clean, high-quality job and we stand behind our work with a five year labor warranty

What Our Clients Say About Us

My experience with home improvement contractors is that they show when they are ready to show and the shuffle jobs so my job drags on. Not with Jeremy and his team. They came the morning (freezing cold) they originally scheduled and stayed on task to completion addressing all of the issues uncovered in roofing this old house. I also
obtained two other quotes on the job prior to selecting Above All, and Jeremy’s quote was less or in line with the other quotes I received. My next roof will also be Above All.
