What Is GAF Factory Certification?
GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer and with over 125 years in business, GAF has also been around longer than most. GAF’s commitment to quality in both their products and in the contractors they certify is why they have a great reputation and are a long-lasting company. Becoming a GAF factory-certified contractor requires thorough and ongoing training and certification to meet strict GAF standards.
GAF Certification Requirements
To become a GAF certified contractor, roofing companies must prove they excel in the field. Ongoing testing and classes are required to maintain familiarity with GAF products and installation, setting GAF certified contractors ahead of the rest.
GAF offers their certification program to any roofing company that installs GAF products. To get GAF’s Golden Pledge warranty, your roof must be installed using only GAF products and installed by GAF factory-certified roofers. The minimum requirements to become certified by GAF are:
- Maintain proper licensing for your city and state
- Be fully insured for your customer’s protection
- Continually complete ongoing training to ensure awareness of any changes in products or standards
- Keep a phenomenal reputation in your community for quality service and for your business standards
GAF certification must be renewed annually to ensure that these qualifications are always met. You can verify any roofer’s GAF certification by visiting the GAF website.
