3 Reasons Homeowners Should Choose A HAAG Certified Roofer

Most homeowners have heard about HAAG certified roofers, but what does that really mean? And why should they choose a HAAG certified roofer over another contractor?

Sometimes it’s easy to spot damage after a storm. Sure, you’ll see dents and dings from hail on siding, windows, decks, gutters and other areas of your home. But other times like with wind damage, the adhesive strips that hold shingles together can be damaged but appear perfectly normal from the ground level of your home.

An  inspection by a storm damage professional is the best way to ensure the safety and security of your home, but especially your roof, after any severe weather event. The best way to know if you are working with a true professional skilled in spotting storm damage is to look for the HAAG Certification badge. Here’s what you need to know. 

Why You Should Choose a HAAG Certified Roofer

There are many reasons we recommend homeowners to choose a HAAG certified roofer. In general, the HAAG certification provides homeowners with the piece of mind that the contractor has gone the extra mile to educate their team with the best practices of the industry. Here’s what else you should know:

1. HAAG Certified Roofers Are Trained To Spot Damage 

A HAAG certification means a roofer or contractor can effectively and efficiently inspect and assess the damage. This certification is no easy feat. The course itself consists of three days and 20 hours. After the session, you must pass the exam and retake it every five years to keep the certification. 

2. Experts on Storm Damage and Other Types Of Damage

The last thing you want to do is file a hail damage claim, only to find out after the insurance adjuster arrives that the roofer was wrong, and it’s actually a manufacturing defect. Being expertly trained to spot storm damage allows us to properly inspect roofs and accurately report on what caused the damage. This keeps you from filing unnecessary claims.

3. HAAG Certified Roofers Know Building Codes 

To become a HAAG certified contractor, we had to perform and document a minimum of 100 residential roof inspections. 

That means we are highly proficient in all major types of residential roofs. 

We are knowledgeable about how hail and wind interact with roofing, inspection safety techniques, roof area calculation, and applicable codes. We also have a deep understanding of the manufacturing, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs for each major roofing type. From wood shakes and wood shingles to slate roofs, asphalt shingles and metal roofing types, we have it covered.
