Doing all the research necessary to find a truly trustworthy roofer can be a stressful, lengthy process. You can compare reviews from various online sources, and ask family, friends or neighbors for the names of contractors they recommend, but that’s still not a guarantee that you’ll end up with a dependable, skilled roofer. One way to put your worries to rest is to hire a professional with Platinum Preferred credentials from one of the most trusted brands in the roofing industry – Owens Corning.
What Does Being a Platinum Preferred Contractor in Minneapolis Mean?
Platinum Preferred status is a badge of honor that few roofing contractors attain. Owens Corning weeds out undeserving roofers with a strict qualification process that’s so stringent, only about 1 percent of roofers are certified nationwide. To put this percentage in perspective, there are only five Platinum Preferred contractors in the entire state of Minnesota.
Here are some of the qualities you can expect in a Platinum Preferred-certified roofer:
- Top-notch service. Owens Corning takes a close look at a contractor’s history of craftsmanship quality and service. This allows you to rest easy that you’re dealing with a roofing company that doesn’t do shoddy work or fail to return calls if a problem crops up after your project is complete.
- Good business practices. Before certifying a contractor, Owens Corning makes sure that they’ve been in business at least 3 years, are current on local and state licensing, and have a good credit report without any liens or judgments. The company also verifies that a roofer has a good reputation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and carries at least $1 million in liability insurance coverage to protect their customers against injuries and property damage claims.
- Industry-leading warranties. Platinum Preferred contractors are the only roofers authorized to offer extended warranty coverage on Owens Corning roof systems. This gives you an opportunity to opt for the extra security of a Platinum Protection warranty that offers lifetime workmanship and material coverage.
- Up-to-date training on materials and installation. Platinum preferred contractors must stay current on the latest installation techniques and product innovations through ongoing staff training. This assures you that you’ll benefit from the latest industry advancements and best practices.
