Top 5 Reasons To Hire a Certified Roofing Contractor

Firstly, your roof is a major part of your home. For something so important, it is crucial to hire the right contractor who will take care of your home. Secondly, your roof protects everything from the attic down to the crawl space and everything in between.  To point out, there are many roofing contractors available, but it’s important to hire the right one. Above all, consider the following before deciding on your roofing contractor.

We are a factory trained and certified roofing company with GAF. GAF, also known as the General Aniline & Film company, is one of America’s largest roofing manufacturers. Over the course of their history the company established a certification program acknowledging high quality workmanship. This allows you to explore a contractor’s background and skills before hiring. Certified contractors have to meet certain criteria before receiving their certification. It’s also an extra layer of protection knowing the manufacturer is backing the installation of your roofing crew. 

1. Your Home is treated to High Quality Materials

Certified contractors have access to material of the highest quality. Furthermore, with a GAF Lifetime Roof System, you will receive the very best and longest lasting protection. And that is precisely why you should select a manufacturer-certified roofing contractor like MCE Roofing. Rest assured, MCE will treat your home with high quality materials. We use only the best materials, backed by the best warranties and installed by our factory-trained roofing crews.

2. You Get High Quality Work

It is true, roofing installations fall under strict construction codes. That being said, the roofing materials must follow manufacturer-specific specs. Your roofing contractor should be aware of local codes. You get peace of mind we will install a roof in full compliance.

3. Safe and Sound

Of course, certified roofing contractors operate with required insurance when on the job. This includes worker safety guidelines and homeowner property protection. This protects them in case of an accident and keeps you clear of related issues.

4. Certified Means the Best Warranties

Certified roofing contractors can offer the best warranties in the industry. It’s a good idea to do a quick check on the manufacturers website to verify their certification status. Not all certified roofing contractors are the same either. With GAF, there are three star tiers to accomplish and as a 2-Star President’s Club recipient and Master Elite contractor, we can offer premium coverage with the Golden Pledge Warranty. These kinds of warranties give you the best coverage should anything go wrong.

5. Certified Roofers Know the Product Lines

Finally, you don’t have time to research piles of information on roofing material and styles. This is why a certified contractor has the experience and knowledge with manufacturer products. This means they can offer the widest and best selection of designs, colors, and features. In the end, you get a perfect roof installation and the look that fits best.


In conclusion, remember to stay safe. Don’t hesitate to contact a professional roofing contractor. There is no shortage of roofing companies and crews, but these companies are not all created equal. Of course, we offer free estimates and a thorough evaluation of your roof’s condition.
