You’ve heard that your local GAF contractor is who you should turn to when you have a roofing problem, but why is that?
And what is GAF, anyway?
GAF is a residential and commercial roofing manufacturer that has been in business since 1886 — over 120 years. (GAF stands for General Aniline and Film — the company used to produce film for cameras as well as roofing materials.) They are the largest supplier of roofing materials to the North American continent, and a trusted brand to professionals all over the world.
GAF allows roofing contractors to apply for certification through their company, but the requirements are rigorous. In fact, the manufacturer reports that only 3 percent of all roofers have achieved “master elite” contractor status.
If you are fortunate enough to have a GAF contractor in business in your state, take advantage of the benefits you’ll get by trusting them to complete your roofing project.
Here are four reasons to go with a GAF contractor:
They are Licensed and Insured
GAF requires all certified roofers to maintain a current license to work in their state — they don’t use unlicensed subcontractors.
They also carry comprehensive insurance that prevents you from being held liable for any injuries that may occur during the project or any damages to your property. You are safe from any legal or financial threats.
Their Reputation Speaks for Itself
GAF will not certify roofing contractors with questionable work histories. They must have a convincing, honest reputation for providing past clients with quality work.
GAF will not tie its name to any potential liability, so you can be sure you are only working with the best of the best when you elect to hire one of their certified contractors. They are always committed to clear client communication, integrity and the utmost level of professionalism that you deserve.
They Continue Advancing Their Knowledge
GAF mandates that their certified companies complete up-to-date training programs about their product offerings. They want their contractors to be experts in their field and open to learning as they go, not stuck in their old ways and resistant to change in the industry.
Their Product Quality is Unchallenged
When you invest in a new roof constructed of GAF materials, you know you are receiving a top-notch product. Just take a look at the warranty. Working with a GAF contractor ensures you are covered not only for any manufacturing defects, but the workmanship as well.
