GAF Master Elite® Certification Part 1: The Requirements

GAF Master Elite® Certification Part 1: The Requirements

As the top roofing company in the area, Superior Roofing takes pride in our GAF Master Elite® contractor certification. The requirements for earning this certification are so strict that only the top 3% of all roofers in the country have earned it. To achieve this designation, a roofing company must have:

The Requirements

Proper Licenses

This is one of the most important requirements for the certification. It’s also good to remember that a roofing license and a business license are two different documents. A proper roofing license is necessary because they show that the contractor is actually allowed to perform roofing jobs in a specific area. To earn a license, a contractor must display that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to follow industry standards and local laws and regulations.

A Proven Reputation

This certification is earned only by the best roofing companies in an area, which means a Master Elite roofer needs to have provided first-class roofing services in the community for many years. A proven reputation among homeowners is one of the clearest indications of a company’s quality.

Adequate Insurance

You need to work with a residential roofing contractor that has great insurance. Insurance will protect you from liability in the rare event that something unexpected happens during the replacement. Without it, you may end up paying the costs for repairs and hospital bills. GAF put this strict qualification in place to protect homeowners. A qualified residential roofing contractor like us has insurance because we want to provide the best service to our customers.

A Commitment to Ongoing Professional Training

Lastly, a Master Elite contractor must not rest on their laurels. They need to be willing and able to undergo continuous training in the latest roofing technologies, techniques and products. It’s the only way to ensure they won’t make any mistakes during roof repair, maintenance and installation.

We are a GAF Master Elite contractor because of our uncompromising commitment to the highest standards in installation, service and sales. You can count on Superior Roofing for flawless roofing services.
