What does it mean to be a GAF Certified Contractor?

GAF® is the largest manufacturer of roofing products in North America and has been in business for 125+ years. One of the many reasons they have become such a long-lasting and reputable company is their commitment to quality, both in their products and those they certify to install their roofing materials. To become a factory-certified contractor for GAF® means that the roofing company has went through training and certification to meet the GAF® stringent set of standards.  


To become a GAF® certified contractors, Elite Home Exteriors Roofing  must be able to prove they are worthy of the distinction.  GAF® certified contractors must go through rigorous evaluations, ongoing testing and classes to ensure the client is getting the highest standard of service, are familiar with GAF® products, proper installation, and always up-to-date on the latest technologies and applications being utilized in the industry.  Some of the minimum requirements to be certified through GAF® are:

      –      Proof that you have all the proper licensing for your city and state

      –      Have full insurance for your customer’s protection

      –      Complete ongoing training to ensure that installers are aware of all product changes and standards

      –      Keep a stellar reputation in the community for service and business standards

GAF® certifications are renewed once a year so that any company not able to maintain these qualifications may lose the certification title. When looking for a local roofing contractor, you can verify if a contractor is GAF® certified by visiting the GAF website.  Just enter the contractors phone number or contractor ID to see if they are certified.A new roof is a large investment.  Before hiring any contractor, it is important to ensure that they are insured and qualified for the job.  Being a GAF® certified contractor means that the company has already passed these qualifications, and more, and can offer to install one of the best roofing products in the industry with the most extensive warranty.  Not all roofing contractors are the same.  It takes more than being able to swing a hammer to be able to install a quality roof that will last for decades.  Considering the investment that homeowners put into a new roof, it makes sense to ensure that the contractor that installs it has a good reputation and is qualified to install the best roofing products.  For homeowners in Fairfield, Putnam, and Dutchess Counties, they can count on Elite Home Exteriors to provide that service.
