Only 2% Of All Roofers In The Continent
Get Awarded GAF’s Master Elite Status
A Status That Earns Our Clients Unequaled
Warranties And True Peace Of Mind
There are several ways to figure out if a roofing contractor in the National Capital Region is the right one for you.
If they’ve been in business for over ten years, you can expect them to be relatively stable. If they take the time during their first visit to educate you on your roof system, they probably have your best interests in mind. And if their warranty is in print large enough to read, you can be fairly sure that they aren’t going to cheat you.
Few Ottawa roofers will pass all three of those tests, but there’s one more thing you can look for if you want to know you’re hiring the absolute best roofers around – GAF’s Master Elite status.
Only 2% of the roofers in North America have managed to qualify for this honour, and Firon Roofing is one of those few.
So what does Master Elite say about a roofing company? Well, actually, quite a bit.
We Are Responsible
It may seem like you can safely assume that all roofers are licensed and insured – but you’d be wrong.
Plenty of roofers operate at the edge of legality, with minimal insurance and no true license beyond a business license. But to be a Master Elite roofer, you must carry a minimum of $2,000,000 in insurance, invest in WSIB, and hold regular training sessions both in class and hands-on.
So, when you work with a Master Elite contractor, you know they are a responsible and prudent business.
We Are Experienced
No company with less than seven years of experience can become a Master Elite Contractor with GAF.
Because GAF wants to know that we’re a stable company that won’t disappear in a year and leave them (and you) hanging. You see, the GAF Golden Pledge (available only through Master Elite contractors) guarantees the workmanship on your roof, even if the company that installed it no longer exists.
So, they have just as much interest in dealing only with experienced, stable companies as you do.
We opened our doors in 2008, exceeding that requirement years ago.
We Give Over-The-Top Service
This is the big one and the reason why so few roofing contractors qualify for the Master Elite status. In order to be considered a GAF Master Elite Contractor, you must have a 99% positive rating from your past customers. Ninety-nine percent!
And we’re not talking about Homestars or Google reviews, either. GAF personnel follow up with every GAF roof replacement customer that each candidate company has serviced over the previous year and asks them about their experience. If fewer than 99 out of every 100 say they’d recommend that company to their friends – the party’s over.
For most roofing contractors, this is an impossible task.
But at Firon Roofing, it’s our minimum standard and has been for years!
We Train – Then We Train Some More
A Master Elite contractor is dedicated to keeping their installers trained on the newest products and techniques.
At Firon Roofing, we have weekly field meetings to review issues before they become problems, and we engage in GAF factory training several times each year. We firmly believe that you never stop learning and that even the most experienced professionals can find ways to improve their performance.
The result is crews filled with installers that will never cut corners, always use the correct products, and take pride in giving 110% every single day.
We Owe It All To Superior Workmanship
Our many years in business, our high-level service, and our entry into the GAF Master Elite contractor program all rest firmly on the shoulders of our amazing installation crews. If they didn’t work so hard and so well, our good intentions wouldn’t mean a thing.
Our installers are craftsmen in the truest sense of the word. They care deeply about the quality of their work and have the knowledge and experience required to know the difference between ‘good enough’ and ‘right’ and the integrity needed to know that ‘good enough’ is neither good nor enough.
With installation professionals like ours, everybody wins!
