Although not all manufacturers have formal certification programs, some do. If you are considering a product from a manufacturer with a certification program, you should always consider a certified contractor for your installation. There are three main reasons for this.
Although every manufacture is different, some won’t honor their warranty if the product was installed by an uncertified contractor. Other manufacturers, like GAF, offer better warranties from their certified contractors. Choosing a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor gives you the options of the Golden Pledge® warranty. It is one of the best warranties in the roofing industry and only available to customers who choose a Master Elite roofing contractor.
A roofer can only qualify for a certification like the GAF Master Elite roofing contractor designation, with highly trained installers. This includes GAF training and training in the field. Less than 3% of roofing contractors nationwide are GAF Master Elite roofing contractors. Choosing a certified contractor provides peace of mind as you can have the confidence that your installer is manufacturer trained.
3. Well-Respected, Licensed, and Insured
Manufacturers don’t want just anyone installing their products. They want companies with good reputations who are licensed and insured installing them. Nearly all manufacturer certification programs include some sort of check of the company’s license and insurance. Most also make sure they have a positive reputation in the community and industry.
If you’re considering a roof replacement with a company who isn’t manufacturer certified, you may want to call a company like Russ Noyes Roofing. We are a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor.
