It’s a given that you need to vet a contractor before hiring them. The vetting process ensures the roofer you’ll be working with is qualified for the job. The problem is the vetting process tends to be time-consuming. Fortunately, there are ways to speed up the vetting process without compromising the results. You can ask for referrals or you can check a contractor’s qualifications.
Manufacturers and independent non-profits screen contractors before certifying them, so, in a sense, they’ve already done all the vetting work for you. GAF®, one of the most trusted brands in the roofing industry, also gives several certifications, one of which is the Weather Stopper® certification.
What are the advantages of working with a GAF®-certified Weather Stopper roofing company?
Professional Roof Installations
Contractors need to undergo professional training and pass exams administered by GAF before they can get certified. However, their training doesn’t end there. A professional contractor needs to keep up with the latest developments in the roofing industry and ensure their technical knowledge remains up-to-date. That’s why GAF’s factory-certified roofers also have access to the manufacturer’s CARE program, which provides live job-training for roofing contractors.
Roofing systems installed by GAF-certified roofers are eligible for exclusive warranties that offer more protection than a standard roofing warranty. To learn about your warranty options, consult a GAF-certified and licensed roofing contractor.
It’s best to stick to the same brand of roofing materials to make sure your roof’s performance remains consistent. If your roof is mostly composed of high-quality GAF roofing components, it makes more practical sense to consult a GAF-certified roofing contractor. Since GAF-certified roofers are more familiar with the manufacturer’s products, they can make better recommendations and help you make the most of your roofing project.
