It’s interesting to ask homeowners what the #1 thing they look for in a roofing contractor is. Affordability quickly comes to mind as does how fast they can get the job done. For all to many homeowners, “a roof is just a roof” and therefore “any old roofing contractor will do.” Surprisingly, hiring a GAF roofing contractor isn’t something they immediately think of.
The truth is, your roof is arguably (along with HVAC, plumbing, and electrical) the area of your home where you most want professional attention. A roof that is slapped together will not only look crooked, it is a huge danger to leak. When your starts to fail 1-3 years after installation you’ll wish you put more time into vetting your installer. A roofing contractor can only do so much with inferior materials, but likewise even 50+ year warranty roofs are at the mercy of their installer.
What is a GAF Roofing Contractor
One of the biggest dangers in hiring a roofer is falling prey to “fly by night” operations, especially after a storm has ravaged the area. These companies work in bulk orders and actually come to you looking for work – slapping on your roof quickly and cheaply but never being heard from again if you have problems.
A GAF Certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor is just the opposite. GAF is the largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing materials in North America. They’ve been in business for over 125 years and their products are highly coveted among home owners, contractors, and third party suppliers.
One of the ways that GAF accomplishes their goals of being the #1 roofing supplier is by offering a Master Elite Roofing Contractor certification program. Less than 3% of contractors in the United States qualify for this program that helps create a devotion to exceptional service as well as safe, quality roofing practices.
