You should always vet a roofing contractor before hiring them. This ensures your roof is installed properly and your returns on investment are protected. However, some homeowners just don’t have the time to vet contractors. Fortunately, there are several ways to speed up the vetting process without compromising the results. One of them is to check a contractor’s certifications.
Before a roofing contractor can be certified, they need to undergo vetting by manufacturers or independent non-profit organizations. As such, in a sense, they’ve done all the vetting work for you. GAF®, one of the most trusted names in the roofing industry, has several levels of certifications, one of which is the Weather Stopper® certification.
What are the benefits of working with a GAF-certified Weather Stopper roofing contractor? The hail damage roof restoration experts at The Pinnacle Group list them below.
Professional Roof Installations
Before they can get certified, contractors need to undergo training by our Pro Field Guides and pass the corresponding exams. Ongoing training is crucial to conducting quality installations and delivering quality customer service, which is why GAF’s factory-certified roofers have access to the manufacturer CARE program. The CARE program provides live job-training for roofing workers, ensuring their technical knowledge remains up-to-date.
One way of maximizing the returns on investment on a roof replacement is to take advantage of GAF’s exclusive warranties. Roofing systems installed by factory-certified roofers are eligible for exclusive warranties that offer more protection than a standard roofing warranty.
Factory-certified roofers are more familiar with GAF’s products and can, therefore, make better recommendations. For instance, after conducting wind damage roof restoration, factory-certified roofers might recommend installing GAF Weather Stopper® 3-Part Roof Protection System, which protects your roof from common but avoidable problems such as wind and moisture damage.
