What GAF Certification Means to You as a Homeowner
If you see a roofing contractor on Long Island that is “GAF Certified” you may not know exactly what that means, and why it is important to you as a homeowner. This designation is a certification from GAF, one of the leading roofing materials manufacturer in the U.S., and only the top 2 percent of all roofing contractors nationwide can claim this certification.
A Third-Party Quality Endorsement
Not all states require roofers to have a license before they can offer roofing services to homeowners (although some cities do have their own licensing requirements). For that reason it’s important that you have a third-party endorsement from a qualified company like a roofing materials manufacturer. A company that is GAF Certified Roofing Contractor has been thoroughly reviewed to ensure they deliver quality products and services to their customers.
Qualifications of GAF Certified Roofing Contractor

While there might be good contractors out there that meet some of these requirements, in order to be able to advertise your services as a GAF Certified Roofing Contractor, you must meet all of the requirements each year. With such a stringent screening process, it’s no wonder the vast majority of roofers in Nassau & Suffolk Counties on Long Island are unable to make the cut.
As a homeowner, your roof plays a critical role in protecting your home. It can also be a significant cost to replace or repair it, which is why you want to make sure you only work with highly qualified roofers that will provide the highest quality work. Seeking out a GAF Certified Roofing Contractor is a good place to start.
