You have made the decision to start accepting bids to replace your roof on your home. This is a huge investment and you want to make sure that the company you choose to install your new roof is certified by the manufacturer of the shingles you choose.

You may be asking yourself what is the difference between a roofer and a roofer with this certification. The largest manufacturers will typically offer full complete roofing systems. Those systems are composed of advanced components that the installation methods differ by the standard ones that most roofers use. This means that the whole roof needs to be installed by roofers who have completed the necessary training that is proved by the manufacturer. This is where the manufacturer certification becomes important.

The advantages of having your roofing project completed by a manufacturer-certified contractor is they have access to higher quality roofing materials. Manufacturer certified roofers represent the brand. They get the shingles, vents, underlayment and other materials straight from the factory. Not to mention they keep up with the customer service standards. They offer extensive warranties. Being a certified contractor it allows them to extend their warranty coverage to their customers. To give one example, if the contractor is a GAF Master Elite contractor, they can offer the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty and that provides 50 years of non-prorated protection against defects.

Not only are you getting the an extensive warranties but you are also getting exceptional workmanship. The installers are trained and certified by the manufacturer itself. When you choose a manufacturer certified contractor you are rest-assured that you roof system meets and or exceeds the standards set by the brand and they undergo strict quality inspections before they will say the job is complete. American Standard Roofing is happy to say that we are manufacturer-certified with CertainTeed, Atlas and GAF.
