Schaefer Siding Earns CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster Accreditation

What is the CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster Accreditation?

The Select ShingleMaster credential is the most rigorous certification offered by CertainTeed which provides quality assurance. At least 50% of a contractor’s installers must be Master Shingle Applicators, and at least one employee must have successfully become a Shingle Quality Specialist by passing the Shingle Technology Manual test. The company must also have been in business for at least 5 years (we are proud to be approaching our 40th year in business) and carry worker’s compensation insurance as well as roofing liability insurance. In addition, Select ShingleMasters agree to abide by a specified code of ethics and are committed to being customer-focused. By earning the CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster credential, an accomplishment that signifies a contractor is in the top 1% of their profession, a roofing company proves its commitment to its craft and their pursuit of excellence.

What a Schaefer 5 Star CertainTeed roof warranty offers

The 5 Star warranty is only available on Integrity Roof Systems that are installed by contractors who hold the CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster credential. This extensive warranty covers shingles for 50 years and defective workmanship for 25 years and provides non-prorated coverage, which means the amount of coverage won’t change over the life of the warranty. The warranty is fully transferrable to a new owner for the first 15 years from the date of installation. It covers the cost of both materials and labor to replace or repair shingles, including tear-off, flashing, metalwork, and disposal. A 5 Star CertainTeed roof warranty offers peace of mind for the life of your roof, ensuring that it has been installed expertly.
