Why Choose a Certified Contractor

Asking the right questions is key to selecting the right contractor.

Certified roofing contractors are:

  • Fully licensed in their state (or local area) to perform roofing work*
  • Adequately insured for your protection
  • Have a proven reputation for providing quality roofing services throughout the community
  • Committed to ongoing professional training to ensure quality installation

*Only the top 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as Certified contractors!

Choosing a Certified contractor is your assurance that you’ll be dealing with a quality, reputable, and dependable professional contractor – not some “fly-by-nighter.”

  • Installation errors account for 47% of all roof failures. Use a factory certified and trained roofing contractor.
  • Master Elite: only the very best 900 contractors out of 300,000 contractors in the nation.
  • Duro-Last: only the very best 2,200 contractors out of 300,000 in the US.
  • Warranty Scams: Most manufacturers look for installation error to turn down liability. Pick factory-certified contractors so that does not happen to you.
  • Family Health: Ventilation
    • Most roofing contractors do not know how to calculate adequate ventilation requirements.
    • Inadequate ventilation causes mold. Mold needs 3 things to promote growth; moisture, heat, and organic materials. All three are found in inadequately ventilated attics.
    • 85% of all homes do not have enough ventilation. (DOE: EPA Study 2006)
    • A 2% moisture content in the attic will drop the R-Value of insulation 33%. That’s 1/3 loss in insulation by not having adequate ventilation. Non-Ventilated roofs are expensive, costing you higher electric bills every month.

Factory-Certified Installation

To ensure your total satisfaction, a Certified contractor has been provided with extensive training materials developed by technical experts-allowing them to stay current in the latest roof installation techniques.

Superior Protection

Most people think a new roof is nothing more than just nailing up some roofing products. Certified contractors know better – which is why they recommend Roofing Protection Systems. It gives you the best protection against a variety of all-too-common roofing problems. Plus, each component used in the system is designed for that system to ensure proper protection, leak-free performance, and warranty security.

“Worry-Free” And “Hassle-Free” Warranty Options

Because of their unique training and factory-certified status, roofs that are installed by Certified contractors are eligible for special warranties – all backed by the manufacturer’s financial clout.

After all, a warranty is only as good as the manufacturer that stands behind it. With a Factory Certified roof, you know that you will be covered throughout the warranty period – without fail! Ask about which warranty option would be right for your home.
