What Does it Mean to be a GAF Master Elite® Contractor

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

At Specialty Roofers, Inc. we take pride in being among the top 2% of roofing contractors in North America. How did we achieve this? We went through the process of becoming GAF Master Elite® certified!


GAF is an acronym for General Aniline & Film, which is the leading manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing materials in America. If you have a roof over your head, there’s a 1 in 4 chance that it was built with GAF’s materials.


The Master Elite® Certification is GAF’s factory certification program that provides ongoing training to roofing contractors and assurance to you, the homeowner, that the roof will be completed well and professionally. This is a highly prestigious award because only 2% of all roofing contractors in the country have qualified as Master Elite®.


What does this mean for you as a homeowner?


Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you will be dealing with a quality, dependable and professional contractor. In order for a roofing contractor to qualify for the certification, they must meet the following standards:

  • A+ BBB rating

  • possess an established license for the state they work in

  • be current with distributor partners in receivables

  • have been in business for at least 3 years

  • consistently show ethical contracting in their service area

  • be adequately insured

  • show a commitment to ongoing professional training


A certified GAF Master Elite® roofer is the only contractor that can offer 2 of the best warranties in the industry, Silver Pledge and Gold Pledge, both backed by GAF. GAF also covers a Master Elite’s workmanship. Approximately 95% of the issues that arise on a roofing project are related to the installation of the product, not the product itself. With a Master Elite® roofer, you can be sure that they have been trained to install the materials correctly and have the ethical wherewithal to make sure that your home is protected.
