What Does Manufacturer Certification Mean?

Roofing manufacturers offer a range of products, some of which are designed to work as a complete roofing system. To achieve better performance, these systems may have advanced components that are installed differently than standard roofing materials. This means they need to be installed by people with advanced training.

This is where manufacturer certification makes the difference. Manufacturers provide certification to roofers who meet their requirements, which includes hours of training for individual products, as well as commitment to future updates and further training. We at Century Roofing and Siding Ltd. are proud of our designation as a GAF Master Elite® contractor, the highest certification awarded by leading roofing manufacturer GAF.

Advantages of Working With a Manufacturer-Certified Contractor

Working with a manufacturer-certified contractor offers the following advantages:

Access to the Best Roofing Products — Our certification gives us access to the wide selection of products offered by leading manufacturers, including exclusive ones. We also order our supplies straight from the manufacturers, which cuts down on delivery time and assures that you’ll always get factory-fresh parts for your new roof.

The Best Warranties — Manufacturer-certified contractors are also authorized to offer exclusive limited warranties. For example, as a GAF Master Elite contractor, we offer GAF’s full range of warranty coverage. This includes GAF’s Golden Pledge® limited warranty, which Smart Choice Protection Period of up to 50 years and up to 25 years workmanship coverage.

Superior Workmanship — The best way for roofing manufacturers to guarantee quality roofing is to train and certify installers. When you work with a manufacturer-certified contractor, you’ll be working with the best. No subcontractors, no seasonal installers, or other third parties. The completed new roof will undergo a strict quality inspection before being deemed complete.
