Many homeowners mistakenly believe that all local roofing contractors are the same. Unfortunately, that’s not true. Some invest in training their installers so that they can stand behind their work with not only an industry leading warranty, but also confidence that the roof is properly installed. When a roofer trains their staff on a particular roofing product, they can receive accreditation from the manufacturer.
Did you know that anyone can buy shingles and install them? They can even call themselves a roofer as North Carolina does not have a roofing license exam or requirement. However, if you know you want GAF brand roofing shingles for your home, you should also choose a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor.
What’s So Special About a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor?
Fewer than 3% of roofing contractors nationwide have the skills, training, and dedication to quality that GAF requires in order to achieve this high status. When you choose a Master Elite roofing contractor, you know that your new roof is backed by the highest warranty available. GAF’s standards for this accreditation at a minimum requires that the contractor have:
- Excellent reputation in their community
- Proper business licensing
- Full coverage insurance
- Commitment to ongoing training
They also must demonstrate their mastery of installation of GAF products.
Only They Can Offer the Golden Pledge® Warranty
This industry leading warranty can only be offered by GAF Master Elite roofing contractors. Because GAF knows the roofers they give the Master Elite status to will install your roof to the highest standards, they can offer you a 25-year workmanship warranty. Few warranties anywhere cover you for such a long time for so many different things. GAF staff regularly randomly inspect the roofs of their Master Elite contractors post installation. The contractor’s work must pass a rigorous 40-point inspection to maintain their status.
What Does the Golden Pledge Warranty Include
In addition to the 25-year workmanship warranty, you also are covered for up to 50 years against materials defects. If there is a material or workmanship issue, the tear off and disposal of your old roof is also included in the warranty repair. Your roof is also covered against winds of 130mph, that equates to a category 3 hurricane – which is a wind speed not often seen here. One of the biggest benefits many homeowners find is that this warranty is transferable to a new owner should you sell your home.
