The Master Elite® Certification is GAF’s factory certification program that provides ongoing training to roofing contractors and assurance to you, the homeowner, that the roof will be completed well and professionally. This is a highly prestigious award because only 2% of all roofing contractors in the country have qualified as Master Elite®.
What does this mean for you as a homeowner? While any contractor can offer GAF products, Master Elite roofers like Lion Home Service are the real authority in GAF roofing components.
Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you will be dealing with a quality, dependable and professional contractor. For a roofing contractor to qualify for the certification, they must meet the following standards:
A certified GAF Master Elite® roofer is the only contractor that can offer 2 of the best warranties in the industry, Silver Pledge and Gold Pledge, both backed by GAF. GAF also covers a Master Elite’s workmanship. Approximately 95% of the issues that arise on a roofing project are related to the installation of the product, not the product itself. With a Master Elite® roofer, you can be sure that they have been trained to install the materials correctly and have the ethical wherewithal to ensure that your home is protected.
An astonishing 93% of homeowners would recommend a Master Elite company for residential roof replacement. Here’s why.
GAF warranties come with a special provision covering manufacturing defects during the new roof’s early years: the Smart Choice® Protection period. It usually lasts for 10 years in the brand’s standard guarantee.
Only Master Elite roofing companies offer the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty, GAF’s strongest level of coverage. This guarantee extends the Smart Choice Protection period to 50 years. In addition, this safety net covers 100% of the cost of replacement material and labor to repair roof damage due to material imperfections.
Typical workmanship warranties for residential roofing services only last for 2 years. Still, the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty offers you 25 years of coverage for installation-related mistakes. So while the chances of workmanship problems with a Master Elite roofer are negligible, it’s additional peace of mind against faulty installation.
Top-of-the-line insurance separates Master Elite roofing contractors and ordinary GAF-certified roofers. This means that Lion Home Service, a Master Elite roofer, carries the necessary liability and workers’ compensation coverage to safeguard your finances if accidents occur.
