Make Sure Your Twin Cities Roofer Has the Right Insurance

Normally we like to write our own headlines, but we are letting the Minneapolis Star-Tribune take this one. From the September 3, 2016 edition: “Picking a roofing company?

Roofer Certifications Matter For Your Bottom Line

Roofer Certifications Matter For Your Bottom Line

When your roof is due for an inspection, and maybe even some repair, don’t call up the first shingle roofing contractor that you see in the phonebook. Do some research on your own and find the most qualified shingle roofing team in your area. Licensed, bonded, insured, and certified are all great things for a roofing contractor to have, but if you could choose a roofing contractor who had all four qualities, why wouldn’t you?

Does Your Roofing Contractor Have the Proper Certifications?

Does Your Roofing Contractor Have the Proper Certifications?

Roofing contractors in the Twin Cities area are plentiful. Certified roofing contractors Minneapolis residential property owners can trust are less common. Most Twin Cities homeowners will have their home’s roof replaced only once. You cannot become an expert on roofing contractors from such a brief encounter. How do you select the most qualified, local roofing contractor, then, when you need roof replacement or roof repairs?

Licensure

The first step towards selecting a trustworthy, certified roofing contractor in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is to ask about the roofer’s license. Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows, for example, holds Minnesota Residential Building Contractor License #BC010277, which we first earned June 13, 1994, and have held proudly ever since. If you are unsure about a roofing contractor’s certification and licensing, ask for the license number, and then look it up yourself.

Industry Certification

Certified roofing contractors Minneapolis homeowners can trust are “certified” not by a state or local government, but by manufacturers. Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows works with two industry leaders, GAF and Owens Corning. With GAF, we are certified as a GAF Master Elite? contractor, a title given to fewer than two percent of all roofing contractors in the United States. To earn this certification, we had to show GAF that we are:

  • Licensed
  • Insured adequately for the homeowner’s protection
  • Have a proven reputation for providing quality roofing work
  • Committed to ongoing professional training to ensure the highest quality roofing installation

In addition to this prestigious designation, we have also garnered GAF’s Training Consumer Protection, Training Excellence, Certified Green Roofer and Habitat for Humanity awards.

With Owens Corning, Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows is a Platinum Preferred Contractor. This designation, which goes to only 20 percent of Minnesota roofing contractors, means we are at the top tier of their exclusive network, meeting their strict standards for professionalism, reliability and unparalleled craftsmanship. We are privileged to offer Owens Corning’s best roofing system warranty.

Other Accolades

Besides a steady stream of satisfied homeowners in the Minneapolis area, Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows can also take pride in:

Membership in the Better Business Bureau
Angie’s List Super Service Award 2015
Platinum Level Participant, LP BuildSmart Preferred Remodeler Program 2015
When searching for certified roofing contractors, Minneapolis homeowners must do their homework. We at Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows will be happy to help you with that homework, and we know we will ace any test you put to us. Contact our offices today.
