Any roofing contractor will probably be able to offer you the same brands and materials that others will for your home. This, however, is not an indication that all contractors are equally qualified to install the same materials. Manufacturers like GAF have created programs for identifying which roofers can be trained and trusted to handle their brand of materials and install them according to the standards they have set. The programs were developed to ensure optimum product performance over specified periods of time.
Here are more points on why hiring manufacturer-certified professionals should be worth your money and time.
Being able to get their hands on the best quality materials available doesn’t necessarily translate to having enough knowledge to identify which ones will work best for your home. Contractors can convince you to invest in the best possible options for your roof, but without the guarantee of a proper installation, you may just be wasting money spending on expensive stuff.
Roofing materials manufacturers like GAF distinguish which contractors are permitted to offer warranties on GAF products. If your GAF roof is installed by non-GAF-certified roofers, you may not be able to enjoy the same benefits that homeowners who worked with certified teams have.
Certified contractors go through a process that ensures their reliability and trustworthiness. Their work using certain product brands is ruled by procedures and standards set by the brands themselves. The work of a GAF Master Elite® contractor, for example, is covered for up to at least 20 years under the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty.
