Founded in the late 1800’s, GAF has become North America’s most prominent manufacturer of roofing materials, both commercial and residential. Their great reputation in the industry continues to provide high quality shingles, namely Timberline HD, which is America’s #1 best seller. They also provide certifications and warranties for all of your roofing needs.

Only 2% of roofing companies qualify as Master Elite,™ clearly making it a highly sought after certification with high standards to maintain on every roofing project. In order to keep this certification, Master Elite™ performs random inspections on various projects done by each roofing company. Although not all states require roofing companies to hold a roofing license, including Georgia, the Master Elite™ certified companies are sure to do a very detailed, thoughtful, and quality roof installation or repair for any of your needs.

So, what goes into obtaining a Master Elite™ certification? Here are 4 requirements a company must uphold:

  • Have a proper license
  • Insured adequately
  • Strong and proven reputation
  • Continued professional training

Here at Elite Roofing of Georgia, as a Master Elite™ certified company, we’re able to use our proven reputation and high quality services to insure you’re getting exactly the product you want and need. We also offer warranties under the GAF umbrella. These warranties are:

The Golden Pledge Warranty covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle. Golden Pledge also covers workmanship error or defects for up to 25 years. This warranty ensures that you’re receiving the highest quality work possible. Golden Pledge is a one-time transferable warranty.

The Silver Pledge Warranty is GAF’s mid-level warranty. It covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle. The workmanship coverage for Silver Pledge is 10 years. It is also a one-time transferable warranty

The Systems Plus Warranty is GAF’s lowest level warranty. Like the other two warranties offered, Systems Plus covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle, but it only has a 2 year Workmanship Coverage. It is a one-time transferable warranty.

We hope this blog helps clarify any questions you have in regards to the GAF Master Elite™ certification. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us through our website or over the phone at (770) 445-1290.
