Benefits of Choosing a CertainTeed Select Shingle Master Contractor

Exceptionally High-Quality Roofing Products

CertainTeed shingles are renowned for their unmatched quality in the residential roofing industry. Defective CertainTeed™ roofing product is virtually non-existent.

Selecting a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractor presents homeowners with an unprecedented selling advantage in the marketplace. The high recognition of this advanced credential gives your property an edge when it comes to resale value, as prospective buyers recognize and appreciate the superior quality materials used by these certified contractors.

Homeowners also benefit from using CertainTeed’s strongest warranty offers, such as SureStart PLUS extended warranty coverage that only a SELECT Shingle Master can provide.

For instance, consider a hypothetical residential roofing job in which two homes have comparable specs but are serviced by different contractors – one being a regular roofer and the other sporting the CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ accolade.

Adding to this is their commitment to exceptional customer service—master shingle applicators ensure every step of the process runs smoothly and transparently, managing all labor costs and disposal costs efficiently.

Additional Benefits of CertainTeed Select Shingle Master Contractors

In addition to the exceptional quality roofing products and knowledgeable roofers, there are two additional benefits of choosing a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractor: extended workmanship warranty and longer product warranty.

Extended Workmanship Warranty

A key benefit of choosing a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractor is the extended workmanship warranty they can offer. While many roofing contractors only provide standard warranties, select shingle master contractors can go above and beyond to give you peace of mind.

When considering roofing contractors for your residential or commercial project, look for those who hold the CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ designation. Their ability to provide an extended workmanship warranty ensures that they stand behind their craftsmanship and prioritize customer satisfaction.

Longer Product Warranty

In addition to the extended workmanship warranty offered by CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractors, another significant benefit is the longer product warranty that comes with choosing these professionals for your roofing needs.

With CertainTeed™ shingles, you can enjoy a limited lifetime warranty that covers defects in materials and manufacturing. These are referred to as the SureStart™ and SureStart PLUS™ warranties, as offered by CertainTeed

Our CertainTeed shingles carry:

  • Full coverage in the event of manufacturing defect on 100% of labor, materials, and additional expenses for 10 years after installation
  • Full coverage on shingles for the lifetime* of the roof (50 years*)
  • 5-STAR Extended Warranty option, which covers workmanship for up to 25 years. 
  • SureStart warranty protection can be transferred to new homeowners; transferable from the original property owners to the first subsequent owner

Having a longer product warranty can save homeowners money in the long run, as it ensures that any necessary repairs or replacements will be covered under the warranty terms.

By selecting a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ Contractor who exclusively uses CertainTeed™ roofing products, homeowners can benefit from this extended product warranty coverage.
