Legitimate, customer-written reviews can help you find reliable professionals for your home improvement projects, but the best recommendations come from building material brands themselves. Manufacturer certifications exist to weed out untrustworthy contractors, allowing you to make sound hiring decisions.
Here are the advantages of working with a certified roofer, siding installer and window replacement specialist like Krech Exteriors:
Most, if not all, certifications require candidates to be properly licensed, adequately insured and fully bonded. Licensed companies are competent, play by the rules and facilitate permit application. If you have misunderstandings with a licensed contractor, you can benefit from the state’s dispute resolution program and tap into available funds for your compensation.
Insurance protects you from the rigors of litigation in case of property damage or worker injury. If something gets ruined or someone gets hurt, your window, siding or roofing contractor’s insurance company would shoulder the responsibility, protecting your pocket book. A bond, on the other hand, compensates you in the event that you suffer financial loss due to your contractor’s unsavory practices, like subpar workmanship.
Certified contractors have gone through intensive training under the guidance of the manufacturers’ experts. Many certification programs also require continuous education to help qualified candidates stay current with the latest installation methods and best industry practices. With exclusive access to training materials, certified contractors have the technical edge over their non-certified counterparts.
Superior Warranty Coverage
Certifications give candidates the privilege to extend higher levels of warranty coverage to customers. For instance, only Master Elite® roofing contractors can offer GAF’s Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty, which provides 50 years of non-prorated protection against manufacturing defects. In addition, this powerful product warranty includes GAF-backed workmanship coverage for 25 years and renders tear-off and disposal costs reimbursable.
Krech Exteriors takes pride in being a certified contractor for premier brands, including GAF, CertainTeed®, LP® SmartSide®, Marvin® and Alside®. Our certifications give us more freedom to offer more value for your money.
