Which would you prefer? McDonalds, or a fancy meal at a 5-star restaurant? I think it’s safe to say that most people would pick the latter of the two. Why? Because it’s better. Same applies for roofing. A Master Elite is the 5-star restaurant. It’s one thing to be certified, but an entirely different thing altogether to be designated Master Elite. A GAF Master Elite contractor has to go through a tough screening process and training regimen to make sure they meet GAF’s standards. And it just so happens that these standards are the highest in the country.
