Why It’s Important to Choose a Certified Roofing Contractor

A roof acts as a protective shield over your home or business.  It is important to properly maintain your roof to avoid leaks, mold and potential structural issues.  When it comes to selecting a reliable roofing contractor to replace your roof, it’s important to do your research on the history of their roofing business.  Unfortunately, the roofing profession is referred to as an “unregulated industry” – meaning no trade school, set number of courses, certificates or prior experience are needed to open a roofing business.  With this being the case, some roofing companies consist of inexperienced workers who are not trained or skilled in such an important trade. 

To give you peace of mind and know that your new roof investment is a good one, it is important to find a roofing contractor that is trustworthy, reliable and most importantly – certified.

What it Means to be GAF Master Elite Certified

Roofing material manufacturers began realizing the lack of formal roof installation training required and decided to do something about it.  Some of the most reputable manufacturers developed factory certified training programs to help consumers find a way to distinguish quality roofing contractors from the knock-offs.  Through these trainings, roofing contractors need to meet specific credentials, be approved and then upon passing the rigorous standards set forth by the manufacturer, they are awarded a factory certified installers certificate.  Such a certificate not only validates the roofing contractor’s business, but also shows their dedication to the profession.

GAF Master Elite® Certification is so prestigious in the roofing world that only 2% of roofing contractors earn this high qualification.  GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in all of North America, was founded in 1886.  Their factory certification program provides ongoing training to roofing contractors and assurance to customers like you that your roof installation will be completed using the highest standard materials and methods.  Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you’ll be dealing with a quality, professional and dependable contractor.
