What It Means to Be GAF Master Elite

GAF-MasterEliteA roof is the most important part of your home and for it to perform properly, all parts of the system must be installed correctly and work well together. A GAF Master Elite roofing contractor is specially trained and certified by GAF, the largest manufacturer of roofing systems in the United States, and can offer several advantages over the competition.

Certification Requirements

Before a contractor is deemed eligible for the Master Elite status, the company must be properly licensed by the state in which it operates, unless licensing is not offered, and the company must be fully insured, which protects both you and the contractor. The contractor must also have an existing reputation for quality roofing work in the area and be willing to commit to the GAF education and training program. These requirements ensure that only the best contractors become Master Elite certified.

GAF Education

The roofing materials that are used are only as good as the quality of the installation. GAF Master Elite contractors are taught the proper ways to install and use all GAF roofing products with methods that are developed by the technical experts at GAF who design and rigorously test the roofing materials. This education includes choosing the correct materials for the job, preferred installation procedures and quality control to ensure that the finished project meets the stringent requirements of the GAF corporation. This training is ongoing, changing as the products and installation methods evolve.

Master Elite Benefits

As a customer of a GAF Master Elite contractor, you can expect the highest-quality roofing products and an installation that meets or exceeds industry standards and local code requirements. In addition, only a GAF Master Elite contractor can offer you the full extent of GAF’s premium warranties, such as the GAF System Plus or the GAF Golden Pledge programs. Both offer 100-percent material defect coverage for 20 to 50 years, depending on the type of shingle used, which applies to the entire roofing system, and labor costs are covered from 25 years up to the lifetime of the roof, depending on the shingles used. The System Plus program includes a 2-year workmanship warranty with tear-off coverage, while the Golden Pledge program includes a 25-year workmanship warranty, including tear-off and disposal coverage.
