A Symbol Representing Exceptional Roofing Standards
Only a select few roofing contractors in North America, less than 2%, are eligible to proudly wear the prestigious GAF Master Elite® badge*. This esteemed status is not for sale; it must be earned through unwavering dedication to upholding the highest standards in sales, service, and installation. GAF’s Master Elite® Certification is exclusively granted to contractors who have demonstrated an uncompromising commitment to customer satisfaction by providing the best roofing choices.
To attain this certification, contractors must possess a minimum of 7 years of experience, undergo continuous training through GAF, renew their certification annually, and meet specific criteria, including:
- Proper insurance and licensing:
- Maintain at least $1 million in Liability Insurance
- Have Worker’s Compensation Insurance
- Obtain state licenses where required and applicable

- Possess a favorable credit rating per Experian
- High qualifications:

Being recognized as a GAF Master Elite® Contractor allows us to provide the industry’s finest warranty – the GAF Golden Pledge®. This exceptional warranty significantly extends the coverage period against manufacturing defects from 10 years to an impressive 50 years, including tear-off and disposal costs. Moreover, the GAF Golden Pledge® Warranty is transferable to new homeowners if the house is sold, providing between 20 and 30 years of coverage, depending on the selected shingles. It also safeguards against errors in the application of GAF Shingles & Accessories and Covered Flashings that might have occurred during the original installation of your roof.
