What is a GAF Certified Contractor?

GAF stands for General Airline and Film. GAF Materials Corporation has become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. GAF products are guaranteed to be of high quality and span a large variety of types of needs. Materials for steep slope and commercial roofing systems are supplied by a thorough portfolio provided by GAF. Lifetime warrantees are offered by the company, on all laminated shingles and just this past year, the GAF Lifetime Roofing System was offered by the company.

This trusted and well known supplier requires that contractors be certified in order to have comprehensive access to the quality supplies and method of roof installation GAF provides. Ace Roofing is a GAF certified applicator and what that means is that technicians have been approved by the GAF Company as capable and proficient in working with their materials.

There are many benefits to using a certified roofing contractor like Ace Roofing, and one of them is that you as a customer are not required to simply take the contractors’ word for it that they will perform a high quality job. The third part (GAF) has determined for you, that a certified roofing contractor is trustworthy and skilled at applying these high end roofing materials.

There are different levels of certification that roofing contractors can be. The entry level certification is “GAF Certified”. The mid-level certification is “GAF Master Select” and the highest general certification for a roofing contractor is “GAF Master”. Being a certified applicator means that the contractor is fully licensed by the state they practice in (in this case, for Ace Roofing-Indianapolis), that they are current and up-to-date on all the requirements of training and are also supplying good customer service and do not have pending complaints.
