What is a Credentialed Contractor and why do Credentials matter?
Having a credentialed contractor performing the work on your home ensures that there is a minimum standard of education for each and every installer. It ensures that certain standards are being implemented and most of all, gives you peace of mind. Only a Credentialed Contractor can offer you extended Manufacturer Warranties that go above and beyond manufacturer defects and cover costs associated with labour, tear off, disposal, and most importantly, workmanship. CertainTeed Building Products Corporation is the ONLY manufacturer in North America that will warranty workmanship on installation of their products by independent contractors. They will only warranty the workmanship of a select few contractors whose installers and staff have completed their mandatory certification programs, have passed the written exams and have maintained these certifications for several years prior to the contractor being granted the Select Shingle Master (SSM) Designation.
ATC Home Solutions Inc has done just this and has earned the SSM Designation. We can exclusively offer you manufacturer warranties that cover our workmanship for 20 years and the shingles for 50 years, 20 years of this coverage is NON-Prorated!! This means that for 20 yrs, you are eligible for FULL replacement cost of your roof should something go wrong. This is on top of our existing 10 year workmanship warranty.
After completing your roof, we register the warranty with the manufacturer. They send out a survey to each and every job that we register for you to fill out and return to Certainteed. This is to ensure that you are recieving the standard of quality that you deserve. We have maintained a perfect track record for customer satisfaction.
For EVERY roof, it is required that each and every installer is certified, that an MSA qualified Supervisor and Shingle Quality Specialist is on site at all times for the duration of the project. Our staff are all full time employees. We do NOT subcontract, we do NOT employ underqualified Temp Services workers installing the products on your home. With ATC, you have professional, certified installers.
SELECT ShingleMaster™ (SSM) – This is the top level CertainTeed roofing credential, and represents the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry.
