Benefits of Choosing a Certified GAF Roofing Contractor

GAF shingles are the number one selling shingles in America. And there are many reasons for that. From durability to the beautiful aesthetic, homeowners love the variety of GAF roofing products.

But experiencing the best GAF shingles have to offer can often come down to more than simply purchasing the product and having it installed. It can come down to the expertise of the contractor you hire for the job.

In fact, when you are searching for a company to install GAF products, there is a major difference between just any roofer and a GAF roofing contractor. Our American Home Contractors team is a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor, so we know just how beneficial this title can be to homeowners, due to the dedication and specialization of our team members.

What Does It Mean to Be a Certified GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor?

In the most obvious sense, GAF Master Elite roofers are specially trained in the installation of the GAF roofing systems. They are groomed to understand the products and proper installation procedures to ensure all GAF roofs perform their best and last for years. To maintain the status, contractors undergo continual training so that they are never underperforming in the installation process.

GAF also requires that all contractors seeking this status are:

  • Properly licensed
  • Fully insured
  • Backed by a good reputation where quality workmanship is concerned—which means a contractor must have years of experience in roofing as well as satisfied customers backing their work
  • Committed to continual learning

GAF helps to vet roofing contractors for you as a homeowner and only gives its seal of approval to the best. GAF has only granted this qualification to 2% of roofers.

With the time, dedication, and skill GAF requires of its roofing contractors, here are a few of the benefits you get to enjoy as a homeowner when you select a Master Elite roofing contractor.

Top-Tier Performance and Durability

If you want to extract the best performance from your GAF roof, then hiring a professional who understands the product and is intentionally trained to install the shingles is the route to go. GAF shingles are known to be durable and beautiful, but they are just one part of the entire roofing system. When you replace your roof with an entire array of GAF roofing products, your home will gain an immense number of benefits. But to maximize these benefits, it’s important to hire a contractor like American Home Contractors who specializes in not only the GAF shingles but the entire roofing system.

Due to their dedication to craftsmanship and their ongoing training, GAF Master Elite roofing contractors bring an elevated installation to your shingles so you know they will perform to the level they were manufactured to do so.

Having a GAF contractor install all of your GAF roofing products will help them to last for years to come, protecting your home all along the way.

Special Warranty Eligibility

GAF stands behind its products with great warranty options. However, hiring a GAF Master Elite contractor can make your roofing system eligible for special warranty options.

GAF roofs come with a standard out-of-the-box warranty that covers the shingles for 10 years and the installation labor for 5 years. But when you seek out a trained GAF professional, you become eligible for the higher-end warranties: The System Plus and the Golden Pledge warranties. These warranties extend to 20-year coverage of the shingles and will cover the entire roof system for a limited time. They also cover labor for 25 to 30 years, as well as provide additional benefits the out of box coverage does not. Check out GAF’s site for more information on the differences in warranty coverage.

Potential Free GAF Roofing Inspection

When you have a GAF Master Elite roofer install your products and choose the Golden Pledge warranty, you qualified for a free roof installation inspection by a GAF professional—the 40-point problem prevention inspection. This inspection will help determine that your contractor properly installed the roof system and no flaws were found.

This is simply another level of peace of mind you get to experience as a homeowner, knowing your roof is in the best shape to give your home the best protection possible.
