When it comes to roofing and hiring the best of the best for your business or home, as long as they are legitimate companies it should be enough, right? Well, let me put it to you this way, if you had the choice of a microwaved meal or a Five Star Restaurant one, would you chose the microwaved dinner? Probably not.
The same principle applies when searching for a quality roofing contractor that knows all the intricacies of the industry and more. Being a certified contractor means that the roofer was trained to install a particular product. Being a GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor means that roofer had to go through a higher screening process and training to make sure they were up to GAF standards (the highest in the country).
So, in order for you to make an informed decision when hiring someone, bear in mind the importance of hiring a GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor. So what does that mean?? To summarize, it means whomever has obtained this certification is not only incredibly knowledgeable but they are also exceeding industry standards.
Here are the Top 3 Reasons you should hire GAF Certified Contractor:
- A Master Elite contractor is the only type of roofer than can provide the golden pledge warranty, the most powerful and substantial warranty in the entire roofing industry. Sounds important right? It’s because it really is! You get special perks when you are GAF Master Elite Certified, in other words you provide better quality and service to your clients. They offer better warranties and products than those that are not GAF Master Elite.
- GAF requires contractors to go through rigorous evaluations before they become certified to ensure the client is not only getting the highest standard of service but also an ethical one. For example, they vet each contractor’s financial/credit history/trustworthiness so they will be less likely to take your money and never do the job.
- The GAF Master Elite Certification requires ongoing training to keep the certification active. That means they are always up to date on the latest technologies and applications being utilized in the industry.
There are only a limited amount of GAF Master Elite Certified Contractors (not to be confused with GAF Certified) in the country (according to the website it’s about 2%). Thrush & Son is proud to be GAF Master Elite Certified.
