GAF Master Elite Contractor: What Is It and What Does It Mean for You?

MHI Roofing - certified roofing contractor

“I see my local roofing contractor is GAF Master Elite Certified. What does that mean?” 

That is an excellent question. 

GAF stands for General Aniline & Film, which is the leading manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing materials in America. Most likely various components of the roof you have over your head are made with GAF materials.

The Master Elite Certification is the certification program that provides ongoing training to roofing contractors teaching the basics and complexity of all things roofing. This highly prestigious award is only granted to 2% of all roofing contractors in the country. A certified GAF Master Elite roofer is the only contractor that can offer two of the best warranties in the roofing industry. 

The Silver Pledge Limited Warranty comes is a Lifetime Warranty with a 50-year protection period and 10-year algae coverage. This warranty also offers a 15-year warranty coverage without maximum wind limitations. 

The Gold Pledge Limited Warranty is the top-of-the-line warranty offered by GAF and includes major coverage that features both a 25-year coverage for labor as well as a 50-year coverage for materials. The beauty of this warranty is that even if the contractor who completes the installation happens to close the business, the warranties are still honored through GAF. 

Approximately 95% of the issues that arise on a roofing project are related to the installation, not the product itself. Therefore, when you place your trust in a Master Elite roofer, you know you are getting excellent trained professionals with the best materials on the market. 

For a roofing contractor to qualify for certification, they must meet the following strict standards:

  • A+ BBB rating
  • Possess an established license for the state they work in
  • Be current with distributor partners in receivables
  • Have been in business for at least 3 years
  • Consistently show ethical contracting in their service area
  • Be adequately insured
  • Show a commitment to ongoing professional training
