The credentials of the roofing contractor you hire to maintain, repair or install a new roof on your Tulsa home matter a lot because you need to be confident that you’ll have a properly-installed, watertight roof to protect your home and family from the elements.
So, before you hire a particular roofer, you need to make sure that they’re licensed, insured, reliable and skilled. For peace of mind that the contractor you choose is fully-qualified, experienced and dedicated to their craft, you should also check for the following three credentials:

National Roofing Contractors Association Affiliation

Founded in 1886, the non-profit National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is the country’s leading trade association for roofing professionals. Membership tells you that a contractor has met the NRCA’s selective application criteria, and adheres to the organization’s high standards of ethics, quality and workplace safety. As a member, your contractor can access a wealth of educational resources, so they stay up-to-date on the latest industry developments, technological advancements, and best practices.

Platinum Preferred Contractor Certification

Platinum Preferred status is an invitation-only certification awarded by industry-leading roofing material manufacturer Owens Corning. Only about one percent of roofers nationwide attain this certification, and these elite contractors must meet stringent qualifications that include a demonstrated history of sound business practices, outstanding workmanship quality, stellar customer service and dedication to ongoing training. When you use this credential as criteria for choosing a roofer, you can have peace of mind that you’re hiring a highly-skilled and reputable professional. Additionally, it gives you an opportunity to take advantage of comprehensive extended warranty coverage that’s only offered through Owens Corning certified contractors.

HAAG Certification

HAAG Global is an internationally-recognized organization that provides scientific roof inspection education, testing, and certification for construction, roofing and insurance industry professionals. HAAG-certified roofers have received in-depth training on how to accurately assess damage and confirm installation quality on all types of residential roof systems, using proven, forensic engineering principles. If your roofing contractor has a HAAG-certified inspector on staff, you can rest easy knowing that effective repairs have been made to your storm-damaged roof, or that your new roof has been installed with consistent, high-quality workmanship.
