Master Elite® roofing contractor

You may see us mention this on our site quite a bit, accompanied by the logo above and wonder what it really means to be a Master Elite® roofing contractor. We will explain, it may take a minute to read through but in the end will reveal a huge amount of information that you will need when considering a contractor.

Master Elite® contractors make up only 3% of the total roofers nationwide.

The reason? It is very hard to achieve. GAF verifies the following items before granting a company the master elite status. To become Factory-Certified as a GAF Master Elite®Contractor, a roofing contractor need to show that they are:

  • Properly Licensed:Licensed by their state (or province) to perform roofing work
  • Adequately Insured: for your protection  *Committed to Ongoing Professional Training to ensure quality installation is done

Have a Proven Reputation for providing quality roofing services throughout the community  

  • A Good rating with BBB 
  • 99% customer satisfaction based on independent surveys from GAF
  • Clean Banking Record (no over drafte, negavite info)
  • Clean distributor reference (means we pay our bills)
  • No leins, or judgements unresolved on record
  • Good workmanship record 

You can see why it is almost impossible for 97% of companies to achieve even these base requirements, but still the final test is a face to face meeting with the territory managers to verify all information. They personally check with previous jobs and talk with our customers to insure we are Master Elite® material. Once we achieved this status we entered into an amazing relationship with GAF that is not only great for us, them, but most importantly you our customer.  

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

GAF requires all Master Elite® to uphold to these standards

A Professional Installation.

So we are taught to recommend GAF’s Weather Stopper® 3-Part Roof Protection System. That has been given the prestigious Good Houskeeping Seal which gives you the BEST protection against a variety of common roofing issues.
