Why You Need to Hire a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor
Putting a new roof on a home or building is one of the biggest investments that a home or business owner will make. It is critically important to the structural integrity of your home or business. A healthy roof will prevent both structural and interior damage from roof leaks which could cause harm to precious mementos, expensive electronics, and more.
Although choosing a qualified contractor can be challenging; there is one credential that is helping to set apart the best of the best in a competitive and sometimes confusing market. Here’s a closer look at the GAF Master Elite Roofing Certification, and the benefits of hiring a company that’s been recognized in the program.
Who is GAF… and what is their certification program?
If you are not familiar with the name, GAF is North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing materials. They have been in business since 1886, and their products are routinely ranked #1 by contractors, home owners, and third party associations. So what sets GAF apart from other manufacturers? The answer is simple… it is their philosophy. GAF focuses primarily on helping homeowners make the best, and safest roofing choices for their homes; while helping contractors build successful, customer-focused businesses.
GAF has been successful in achieving both of these goals through their Master Elite Roofing Contractor certification program. They recognized a gap in the market for an independent agency to help rank the most highly qualified roofing contractors in America. This process makes it easier for consumers to hire qualified roofing companies and offers incentives to motivated roofing contractors whose focus is to provide exceptional service and develop real roofing expertise. It’s fair to say that this is a rigorous process: less than 3% of contractors in the US actually qualify for the program.
So what does the certification tell you as a consumer?
The standards for GAF certification are demanding. If you hire a GAF Master Elite Roofing contractor, you know for sure that your contractor:
– Is fully licensed according to state and local regulations in the area you live or work;
– Carries adequate business and worker safety insurance to protect you while they’re on your property;
– Has an excellent reputation, as verified throughout the community by it’s peers, customers, and affiliations;
– Is committed to ongoing professional education, to offer you the latest in roofing technology and techniques.
Since these points correspond with the major questions every home or business owner should ask prior to hiring a roofing professional; working with a GAF certified contractor will save you important time and money during the vetting process.
What are the other benefits of working with a GAF certified contractor?
It’s not just peace of mind and high quality workmanship at stake when you’re working with GAF certified contractors. The company offers a number of benefits that can affect your bottom line. Your contractor gets:
– Access to the latest information and advanced products to offer you state of the art roofing that may last longer and may not require repairs.
– Exclusive access to the Golden Pledge Warranty..The most powerful and substantial warranty in the entire roofing industry as it is only available through Master Elite contractors and requires the entire roofing system to be from GAF, a single manufacturer.
