If you’re in the market for a new roof, one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is hiring the right roofing professional. A roof installation is one of those jobs that must be done right the first time. The last thing you want is someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing to install your new roofing system. Plus, many roofing manufacturers offer stellar warranties for their products, but those warranties can be voided if the roof is improperly installed.

That’s where we come in.

Freedom Roofing is a GAF Certified™ Weather Stopper® roofing contractor, meaning we’ve got what it takes to deliver quality roof installations and repairs every time. We serve residents across Penobscot, Hancock, and Kennebec Counties in Maine.

What does it take to be a GAF-certified roofing contractor?

The GAF Certified™ Weather Stopper® program is a roofing contractor certification program offered by GAF, North America’s leading roofing manufacturer. This program is designed to help roofing contractors provide homeowners with quality installation services and stand out from their competitors.

The program requires that roofers meet certain requirements, including:

  • Proper licensing: The contractor must have proper licensing in their state to perform roofing work.
  • Adequate insurance: The contractor must have proper insurance coverage for their business, including liability and workers’ compensation insurance.
  • Good reputation: The contractor must have a good reputation in their community and a proven track record of providing quality roofing work.
  • Ongoing training: The contractor must commit to ongoing training and education to stay up-to-date with the latest roofing techniques and materials.
  • Use of GAF products: The contractor must use GAF roofing products in their installations, which includes meeting the manufacturer’s standards for installation. Here at Freedom Roofing, we specialize in shingled, rubber, and metal roofs.
  • GAF certification training: The contractor must attend GAF certification training to learn about the latest installation techniques and product knowledge for GAF products.
  • Warranty: The contractor must offer a comprehensive warranty on their work that meets GAF’s rigorous standards for quality and professionalism.
