Comprising a team that has over two decades' worth of experience in the roofing industry, Guardian Roof Systems has always prided itself in going the extra mile to satisfy its customers. One of the ways in which the Pearland-based company strives to do so is through certification through CertainTeed. Today, Guardian Roof Systems has the CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster credential, making it a member of a very small, exclusive club. Fewer than five percent of companies in the United States have the aforementioned credential.
Founded in 1904, CertainTeed is headquartered in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of French multinational company Compagnie de Saint-Gobain SA. The company specializes in manufacturing building materials for residential and commercial construction projects. CertainTeed has made a commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly building materials by establishing a range of certification programs for construction categories or subsectors that include roofing, in addition to ceilings, vinyl siding, fences, decking, railing, and insulation.
SELECT ShingleMaster is one of the eight roofing credentials that CertainTeed offers. The program is designed for the very best professional roofing companies, and the credential gives the recipient a major selling advantage in the marketplace. Becoming a SELECT ShingleMaster requires that the company be in business for at least five years, hold the lower-tiered ShingleMaster credential for one year, and have at least one employee that is a Shingle Quality Specialist. Other requirements include passing the Business Fiscal Responsibility exam, having a shingle roof installation crew with at least half of its members being MSA-qualified, and holding current worker's compensation insurance and liability insurance covering roofing.
In addition to its unique CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster certification, Guardian Roof Systems provides roofs that can be Texas Windstorm certified, according to the standards of the Texas Department of Insurance and the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association. This certification is essential in the Houston metro area in particular and Texas in general, as the state is prone to strong storms that can inflict damage upon roofing systems.
