A Master Elite™ Certification from GAF is the highest level of roofing certifications available in the roofing industry. To gain this certification, contractors need to
Be properly licensed
Have a proven reputation
Be committed to ongoing professional training
Only 2% of all roofing companies qualify as Master Elite™. This means that out of the 4467 roofing companies in California only 89 are able to meet GAF’s high quality standards. In order to uphold these standards, GAF randomly inspects a large number the roofs that each company puts on each year.
This makes holding a Master Elite™ Certification one of the few ways to determine if your chosen contractor is actually qualified to perform work on your roof.
Warren Roofing is qualified as a Master Elite™ contractor, which means we are able to provide our customers with the most inclusive warranties in the roofing business.
GAF offers three levels of worry-free warranties.
The Golden Pledge Warranty is the most inclusive warranty available. It covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle. Golden Pledge also covers workmanship defects for 25 years. This includes tear-off costs, as well as disposal costs. Any repairs needed because of manufacturer defects or poor workmanship will be made by a GAF Master Elite™ Roofing Contractor, ensuring that you will get the highest quality work possible. Golden Pledge is a one-time transferable warranty.
The Silver Pledge Warranty is the mid-level warranty that is offered by GAF. This covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle. The workmanship coverage for Silver Pledge is 10 years. This includes tear-off costs, as well as disposal costs. It is also a one-time transferable warranty
The Systems Plus Warranty is the lowest level warranty that GAF offers. It also covers 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle, but it only has a 2 year Workmanship Coverage. Systems Plus covers tear-off costs, but it does not cover the cost of disposal. It is a one-time transferable warranty.
