What does GAF Master Elite™ Certification mean for our customers? 

The Master Elite Certification is GAF’s factory certification program that provides ongoing training to roofing contractors and assurance to you, the homeowner, that the roof will be completed well and professionally.  A certified GAF Master Elite® roofer is the only contractor that can offer 2 of the best warranties in the industry, Silver Pledge and Gold Pledge, both backed by GAF. Approximately 95% of the issues that arise on a roofing project are related to the installation of the product, not the product itself. With a Master Elite® roofer, you can be sure that they have been trained to install the materials correctly and have the ethical wherewithal to make sure that your home is protected.

What does this mean for you as a homeowner? 

Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you will be dealing with a quality, dependable and professional contractor. In order for a roofing contractor to qualify for the certification, they must meet the following standards:

Golden Pledge is the most exclusive warranty upgrade available. It offers excellent protection with coverage for installation errors, manufacturing defects, wind, and blue-green algae growth

The Silver Pledge is the mid-level warranty that is offered by GAF that comes standard with every GAF shingle installation and covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle.

The Systems Plus Warranty is the lowest level warranty that GAF offers but still beats any standard warranty on the market due to its non-prorated coverage. It also covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle.
