For the first part of our special blog, Arry’s Roofing will explain the non-negotiable requirements a contractor must meet to earn the title of Master Elite:

Proper License

The first step in achieving Master Elite status is to acquire a state license. Without a license, no contractor is eligible to perform roofing work in the Sunshine State. The Construction Industry Licensing Board aims to evaluate basic competency and weed out dishonest roofers.

GAF also requires that aspiring Master Elite contractors obtain a license for the protection of consumers like you. In case of misunderstandings, you will benefit from the state’s dispute resolution program and state funds to get you any necessary compensation.

Adequate Insurance

GAF has a large number of certified roofers across America, but insurance distinguishes Master Elite roofing contractors from garden-variety credentialed companies. Obtaining adequate insurance is a serious financial investment, which is why many contractors skip this step. This is why you when hire a Master Elite contractor, you know you’re working with a company that goes above and beyond to safeguard your wallet and provide you peace of mind.

Ongoing Training

Intensive training isn’t just necessary to gain the Master Elite status, but also to maintain it. Master Elite contractors are required to undergo continuous training to stay technically sharp and updated with the latest practices and technologies. This is the only way they can ensure flawless installation on every project.

Solid Reputation

Beyond the skillsets and paperwork, GAF looks into the company’s character too. Every Master Elite roofer has a wealth of experience and an impeccable customer satisfaction record. To become a Master Elite, the contractor must have an A rating with the Better Business Bureau as verified by GAF.
