Absolute Roof Now a Certified Certainteed SELECT Shingle Master

Oh happy day! Absolute Roof is now a Select Shingle Master!

Being Certainteed accredited is an achievement for us because it is proof of our commitment to high-quality roofing products and services. But what exactly does this mean for our customers?

But aren’t all licensed roofing contractors certified?

Technically speaking, no, they are not the same. Licensed contractors have the permission (obtained from relevant authorities) to practice or undertake projects within a certain area – either a township, county, or state.

Becoming credentialed is another thing altogether. Specialized trainings and programs are provided to licensed roofing contractors, and for them to earn thee credential and certification, they need to successfully complete programs or training.

What is a SELECT Shingle Master?

The SELECT Shingle Master certification is given to roofing companies that specialize in residential roofing. These credentials mark the technical qualifications of the roofing contractor.

This is the top level CertainTeed roofing credential, and represents the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry. An SSM has shown extensive knowledge of shingle installation and quality through rigorous testing, and have provided CertainTeed with proof of workers’ compensation and liability insurance.

Why should you choose a credentialed roofing contractor?

Roofing is a critical part of residential property construction. Most of the time, we focus on the material to be used and brush off the actual installation. Working with a credentialed contractor, you can rest assured  that the job is going to be fully-compliant with industry standards and the end result will be of high quality.

In addition, a Certainteed Contractor can:

  • Offer extended manufacturer warranties that extend past the usual manufacturer warranty benefits. These warranties may cover costs associated with labor, disposal, replacements, and workmanship, over an extended period of time.
  • Perform quality work that will put your mind at ease about the integrity of the roof system after the roofing process has been completed.
  • Offer excellent advice and recommendations about the roofing process as well as provide answers to your questions.
