One way to make your choice easier and have the assurance of superior service it to look for an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor.
Platinum Preferred Contractor Explained
Owens Corning began making shingles in the 60s, and they’re now one of the largest and most reputable roofing material manufacturers in the U.S. and around the globe. The company recognizes that installation has a huge impact on how well their shingles and other roofing products perform, so they award Platinum Preferred Contractor certification to an elite group of roofing contractors who demonstrate superior installation skills.
Becoming a Platinum Preferred Contractor
Owens Corning doesn’t invite every roofer to join their network of Platinum Preferred Contractors. In fact, only about 1% of roofers are hand-selected for the distinction. In order to be accepted, a contractor must meet the company’s rigorous qualification guidelines that include:
- Following all state and local requirements for licensing.
- Carrying a minimum of $1,000,000 in general liability insurance coverage.
- Being in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
- Having a proven commitment to ongoing training, outstanding workmanship and customer service.
- Having a clear history with no liens or judgments.
- Undergoing a credit check and being financially solvent.
- Operating under their business name for at least 3 years.
