Qualifications of a GAF Master Elite™ Contractor

One of the best ways to select a credible roofing contractor is by checking out his certifications. After all, you want to hire only the best roofers to handle your installations and replacements. Of the many certifications available today, GAF Master Elite™ stands out the most. This prestigious certification places a roofer in the top 3% of all roofing contractors in the US!


Tugwell Roofing Co. is proud to stand out among other Chico roofing contractors, thanks to our GAF Master Elite status. We completed rigorous training and testing to earn this designation. Here are a few other requirements to become a GAF Master Elite contractor:

Minimum of Seven Years in Operation

A would-be Master Elite contractor must have been in business for at least seven years. Since our inception, we have quickly gained one of the best reputations in the region for reliability in our roofing projects. We take pride in handling it all, from complete roof replacements and dry rot repairs to expert installations of any type of roofing materials.

Valid Business License

Licenses guarantee that contractors can carry out all tasks required of them. In most states, contractors will need this license before practicing their craft. GAF is very particular about this condition, as they want only competent contractors installing their products.

Solid Reputation

This comprises a credible Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating and a clean banking record over a set period. It also includes a strong credit rating and a clean workmanship record. We are proud to have met these conditions with an A+ rating from the BBB and an Angie’s List Super Service Award for past years running.

Comprehensive Insurance

A contractor must have full insurance coverage, including one million dollars in general liability. This covers you and your home, as well as our employees and subcontractors.

As the top Chico roofers, we provide you with absolute peace of mind for your roofing needs. We also offer one of the best roofing warranties in the industry to protect you for years to come.
