Top 5 Reasons To Work With a Certified Roofing Contractor

The roof over your head makes everything you do inside of it possible. Raising a family, spending time together, and enjoying hobbies. Entertaining friends, working at your job, and nurturing a new pet. In all cases you count on your home to keep you safe and protect you from harsh weather.

And that is precisely why you should select a manufacturer-certified roofing contractor like Mark’s Custom Exteriors. There is no shortage of roofing companies and crews in the Pacific Northwest and indeed, all over the country, but these companies are not all created equal.

What is GAF Certified?

Established in the late 19th century, the General Aniline & Film company in New Jersey is one of America’s largest roofing manufacturers. Over the course of their history, the company established a certification program acknowledging high quality workmanship.

With that in mind, you can explore a contractor’s background and skills as the best fit for your construction project.

Top 5 Reasons You Want a Manufacturer Certified Contractor on the Job

1. Your Home is treated to High Quality Materials

Certified contractors have access to material of the highest quality, including GAF Lifetime Roof Systems that offer the very best and longest lasting protection. Certified contractors will ensure the right material is used for your particular climate and homesite scenario.

2. You Get High Quality Work

Roofing installations fall under strict constructions codes and roofing materials must follow manufacturer-specific specs. A certified contractor is well aware of local codes and you get the peace of mind they install a roof in full compliance.

3. Safe and Sound

Certified roofing contractors operate with required insurance in place when on the job, including 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, iron-clad warranties in the industry including the Golden Pledge—100% coverage of your roofing system for 50 years and 25 years for workmanship. GAF certification also provides homeowners with a thorough inspection of completed roof projects.

5. Certified Roofers Know the Product Lines

You don’t have time to research piles of information on roofing material and styles. A certified contractor is steeped in experience with manufacturer products and can offer the widest and best selection of designs, colors, and features. In the end, you get a perfect roof install and the exact look that fits best.
