Hiring a roofing contractor is an act of trust. You’re putting the long-term protection of your home into the hands of someone you may have just met. That can be nerve-wracking, unless you’ve done your research. Here are three things to look for that can help you choose a roofing contractor with confidence:
Reviews: Always check consumer reviews. That’s where you’ll get first-hand insights into how easy the contractor was to work with, how well the crew cleaned up after the work was done, and the perceived value of the overall project.
Certifications: Many manufacturers offer certification programs to installers who are most familiar with the installation of their products. To qualify for certification, a roofer will likely have to have a minimum number of years in the business, be properly insured, licensed where required, and maintain good standing with the Better Business Bureau. These certified contractors can usually offer you enhanced warranties that are backed by the manufacturer. For example, GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, offers the Master Elite® Contractor designation to less than 2% of all roofing contractors. Only Master Elite Contractors® can offer the GAF Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty* with up to 30 years of Workmanship coverage.
The Best of the Best: If the GAF Master Elite® badge identifies a rare breed, the GAF Master Elite® President’s Club Award Winner badge takes it one step further. Less than half of Master Elite® contractors qualify for President’s Club status, and they do that by demonstrating excellence in three key areas: Performance, Reliability, and Service. The badge says that over the course of the prior year, the company installed a minimum number of complete GAF roofing systems that qualify for GAF’s highest warranties while maintaining consistently excellent customer reviews. If you’re looking for experience and excellence in residential roofing, no other designation means as much.
