It’s a nightmare come true: you need to repair or replace your home’s roof. Now you have to wonder about the cost, how long it will take, and how you will actually get it done.
Because roofing work is more complicated (and dangerous) than replacing a window or painting a wall, you should hire a certified roofing installer for the job. There are several qualities to look for in a roofing contractor, but certification should be one of them.
3 Reasons to Choose a Certified Roofing Installer
Certified roofing installers have passed the training and tests necessary for obtaining their certifications and licenses. Such training includes knowledge about the industry, including materials and best practices. This background means you can expect high-quality work from an experienced, knowledgeable contractor.
For example, our firm, Peak Custom Remodeling, has earned CertainTeed’s ShingleMaster credentials, a program focused on superior craft and customer satisfaction. To achieve these credentials, a roofer must demonstrate excellence, including in its reputation among customers, perform quality installations of CertainTeed products, and provide proof of workers’ compensation and liability insurance. This credential means you can expect honest, high-quality work that protects your home and satisfies you with a job well done.
Certified roofing installers should be fully authorized to work under local laws and regulations. For example, the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC) licenses Peak Custom Remodeling; the license requires applicants to pass an exam based on existing laws and regulations about home improvement. This credential ensures that you are working with a contractor who is knowledgeable in their industry and fully authorized to perform their work under state law.
Commitment to Excellence
Certification and licensing require contractors to undergo training and testing and pay education and application fees. A roofing company that endeavors to obtain these credentials demonstrates its focus on excellent customer service and quality work.
