6 Reasons to Work With a GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor

You love your home, but when you step outside and see the state of the exterior, you cringe. Not only are the old shingles an eyesore, but they can also be causing potential damage to unseen parts of your home.

You finally pull the trigger and contact local roofing contractors to find the best match. Some of these contractors proudly plaster “GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor” on their websites and advertisements.

“What is that, and how is it important for roofing contractors?” You may ask yourself. Being a GAF Master Elite contractor is like wearing a badge of honor for quality work and strong service integrity.

Additionally, it lets you know you’ll be getting trusted work, and here are six reasons why.

1. Reputable & Trustworthy

When you see “GAF Master Elite certified contractor,” you can feel confident that the business’s trustworthiness is not just an empty promise. When a roofing contractor wears this badge, it means their team holds a track record of excellence, including good standing with the Better Business Bureau and a good credit rating per Experian.

2. Highly Qualified

Choosing GAF factory-certified roofing contractors also ensures you’re hiring the best in the business, as our team is trained and certified by GAF in the most recent and efficient methods of shingle installation.

3. Properly Insured

When a roofing & siding contractor is GAF Master Elite, one of the main things to know is they bring $1 million+ liability insurance coverage to every project. This can put you at ease, knowing your exterior installation or replacement will be covered if anything goes awry.

4. Workers Compensation

You not only want great work done for your exterior, but you also want to know the business you choose has a sense of morality and is ethical. For a contractor to certify as GAF Master Elite, their employees must have access to workers' compensation.

If one of the workers is injured while working on your roof, you know they will get the treatment they deserve while not having to miss out on income. Having a roofing contractor who respects their employees speaks highly of their business as a whole, and that’s the GAF Master Elite way.

5. Best Materials Used

Being a GAF Master Elite contractor means only the most reliable materials will be used on your home. For instance, GAF Master Elite contractors employ the most trusted shingle brand of the last century in GAF Timberline Shingles for their homes.

6. Exclusive Warranties

Having your new GAF shingles installed by a Master Elite Roofing Contractor offers access to exclusive warranties. Let’s share a brief overview of GAF Master Elite’s warranty plans:
