Perrysburg Roofing: Article About Master Elite Contractors
In many states, Ohio included, roofers and other contractors do not necessarily have to be licensed or insured in order to comply with the law. This is bad news for property owners because it means that they could contract for services in good faith but have little or no recourse if something goes wrong during the process or if the result is not satisfactory.
One way to avoid having such problems is to hire a GAF certified roofer. GAF is one of the largest roofing product manufacturers in the United States, and the company has developed a program for roofing contractors that helps ensure the best possible products and services. Hiring a GAF certified Perrysburg roofing contractor goes a long way toward ensuring customer satisfaction. Only about 3 percent of all roofing contractors achieve this status because GAF implements rigid guidelines and then monitors each contractor's progress on a routine basis.
Before GAF will consider a roofing contractor for their certification program, the roofer must have been in business at least seven years and possess an excellent reputation for delivering a quality product as well as outstanding customer service with at least a 99 percent satisfaction rating. GAF does an independent survey to confirm these facts; the company does not rely solely on data provided by the roofer. The company must have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau as well.
The roofers from Johnson Construction of Perrysburg would be happy to answer any questions you have about commercial roofing or roof repair.
Good credit is also an essential. GAF will not consider companies that have a history of poor banking practices like excessive overdrafts, liens or unresolved judgments.
GAF certified roofers must have both workers' compensation insurance to cover their employees and a minimum of $1 million in liability coverage. This protects property owners from lawsuits if a roofer in injured while working on their property. It also protects property against any damage caused by the contractors.
Once a company has met these stringent requirements, they must be enrolled in the program for at least a year before they are considered fully certified by GAF. The manufacturer provides initial and ongoing training for its products so that contractors are always ready to install and maintain any kind of roofing system that GAF manufactures. GAF representatives perform the final inspection when one of the roofing systems is installed by their certified contractors, so the property owner has the full assurance of GAF's promise and guarantee for complete satisfaction.
In the unlikely event there is a problem with the GAF system, the manufacturer's warranty along with the warranty provided by certified installers will alleviate the property owner of financial responsibility. GAF's continuity of service and warranties provide outstanding protection to home and business owners.
