On Certifications: What Do They Truly Mean For You?

For anything you need to get done in your house, you should look at your contractor’s credentials. It’s easy for anyone to say they’re the best in town to win your business. Nevertheless, how would you know which one can walk the walk? One way to confirm is by checking their certifications.

At Garlock-French Corporation, we never claim anything we can’t back up. The integrity we established for over 80 years as one of the roofing contractors in Minneapolis is partly due to our certifications. You may wonder: what do these manufacturer certifications mean for you?


Our GAF Master Elite™ Contractor status is the proof of the high quality of service we can provide. This designation is synonymous to being a trusted expert when it comes to using the most trusted roofing system in North America. In fact, only 3% of roofing contractors in the country have this distinction.

Before getting this label, a contractor specializing in roofing in Minneapolis should get a 99% customer satisfaction rating on a survey GAF itself conducts. In addition, a company should have a satisfactory rating in the Better Business Bureau.

In addition, being one of the few select contractors on CertainTeed’s listing means getting the nod from the industry’s most reputable brands. That is exactly what our Ludowici Crown Roofer and Carlisle Authorization stand for.


This distinct GAF Master Elite Contractor title isn’t good for life; we have to work hard to keep this certification every year. This means we’re only just best-in-class, but we’re also consistent in delivering the same high level of quality in every project we handle. We undergo continuous training from the company to keep us updated in the latest techniques. This will benefit more homeowners when they hire us to work on their roofing.

Peace of Mind
Most of all, the reason we keep setting the standards higher for ourselves every year is to ensure your peace of mind. Our ultimate goal is to leave you with no doubt that your unique requirements for tile, slate, or metal roofing in Minnesota would be covered to your satisfaction.

Only a few can match Garlock-French Corporation’s wealth of experience and proven expertise in the business. Be sure to work with a GAF Master Elite contractor and a company handpicked by CertainTeed. After all, you’re not just hiring ordinary hands for the job; you’re getting experts that you can trust.
