We often mention that we are a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor… but do you know what GAF Master Elite means?
GAF Master Elite is a certification offered by GAF, the largest shingle manufacturer in the country.
Each year GAF verifies that we are properly insured and licensed, reputable and trustworthy, and highly qualified.
- GAF takes the time to verify that we are properly insured and licensed for your protection. The idea is to give you peace of mind. When selecting Turner Home Improvement, or any GAF Master Elite Contractor, you are covered. They will verify that we have up-to-date $1M+ liability insurance, workmen’s compensation, and a state license where required and applicable. Since we are in Connecticut, under the Connecticut Home Improvement Act, we are required to register with the Department of Consumer Protection. This is necessary because we contract with consumers to perform work on residential properties. The Act defines home improvement as any permanent change to residential property including but not limited to roofs. Our license number is #HIC.0616625.
- To verify that we are still reputable and trustworthy, GAF makes sure we have a continued track record of providing quality roofing services to our clients. They will even check our listing on the Better Business Bureau and go as far as to check out our credit rating on Experian. This is another reason why we are thankful when our customers review us on third-party platforms like Facebook or Google My Business.
- The final qualification, is making sure that Turner Home Improvement is a highly qualified roofing contractor. To do this, GAF offers training and certification classes to keep us at the top of our game. Even though we have been in business for over 60 years and have some very skilled craftsman on our team, we understand you can never stop learning. These training courses are helpful to keep us up to date on the latest innovations from GAF. and any new best practices for installing a long-lasting, quality roof.
We are honored to be part of only 2% of roofing contractors in North America that are considered GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractors.
This certification not only benefits you because it is one more entity recommending Turner Home Improvement’s work, but it gives us the ability to offer you superior protection with a GAF lifetime roofing system, and access to enhanced warranties.
Not only do we offer industry-leading workmanship warranties on our roofs, but our work is all backed by GAF, giving our roofs a 50-year warranty.
Tiered certification programs are not exclusive to GAF. Most large manufactures offer similar programs for contractors to participate. For example, Owens Corning has Platinum Preferred Contractors and Certainteed has Select ShingleMasters.
So next time you are looking for a roofing contractor, be sure to ask them what type of certifications they hold… because, at the end of the day, would you rather invest in a new roof or your last roof?
