US- based roofing contractor T&S Roofing Systems has received the Master Elite certification from the North American roofing manufacturer, GAF Materials. Currently, only 3% of the total number of roofing contractors in the country has received this certification.
Of the 1800 roofing contractors present in Miami and Fort Lauderdale alone where T&S Roofing Systems is based, only 14 companies have received the Master Elite certification.
Roofing contracting companies that receive this certification can provide 15-20 year warranties on metal roofs and new shingle tiles from GAF Materials to homeowners. Unlike warranties that are provided by non-certified roofing contractors, the Blue Diamond Warranty and the Golden Pledge Warranty covers the workmanship and inspections of building departments. As per this certification, roofs coming under the warranty are subject to a 40-point inspection by the inspector from GAF Materials.
The materials and installation procedures exceed the expectations and requirements laid down in the certification. T&S Roofing currently provides its services to more than 1000 homes annually and has also received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. According to the President and CEO of the company Louis Toledo, the training that the company went through during the course of the certification process has increased its quality of installation and customer service.
