Best Exteriors, Inc has earned the prestigious Certainteed SELECT ShingleMaster™ credential

Best Exteriors, Inc. has earned one of the highest-level credentials in the residential roofing space. Effective January 2022 we have been promoted to the Certainteed SELECT ShingleMaster™ program, this program elevates us to the top 1% of residential roofing contractors in the United States. As great of an honor as it is for our company to earn this award, the real benefits are for our customers! Please read below to learn more about this credential, what it took for us to earn it and most importantly the benefits for roof replacement, roof repair and new roof installation customers.

What it takes to earn Certainteed SELECT ShingleMaster™ status

Earning this credential involves a rigorous process, including several significant educational and accreditation steps. This mark of distinction separates SELECT ShingleMasters™ from most other companies. In addition to having all necessary licenses and proper insurance, our company has exceeded all growth goals as a ShingleMaster company allowing this promotion to be applied to our company.

Additionally, our company must continue to meet the following requirements annually to maintain the credential:

The most well qualified roofing installers

  • Through testing on roofing, safety & installation best practices and annual re-accreditation to ensure that all supervisors and at least 50% of the company’s installers are Master Shingle Applicators™ (MSAs). At Best Exteriors, Inc. we go beyond the minimums and ensure that all installers have passed the Master Shingle Applicators test.This ensures that you get the best roof installed on your home!
  • Information from the CertainTeed Shingle Applicator ‘s Manual provides instruction to our crew members (MSA’s), making them some of the most knowledgeable professional roofing installers in the industry.

Product knowledge

  • Four of our employees have earned the Shingle Quality Specialist™ designation after passing a test on the CertainTeed Shingle Technology Manual, which proves their knowledge of shingle products, quality standards and satisfying customer objectives. This all encompassing test allows our crew members to know what goes into how the roofing products are made and how to spot any anomalies.
  • Trust their expertise to explain important differences between shingle lines and different accessories to offer our clients an appropriate selection of the best products for your roof that will ensure you have a roof that will last a lifetime.

  • Our company must maintain a customer satisfaction rating of 4 or higher on a five-point scale based on our customers feedback

SureStart PLUS™ Warranty Usage

  • As a Certainteed SELECT ShingleMaster™ we are authorized to offer you SureStart™ PLUS 3-STAR, 4-STAR, and 5-STAR extended warranty protection on your investment.
  • We are also able to offer you upgraded 130 mph wind warranty available and extended years of transferability

Only CertainTeed gives you the confidence of SureStart PLUS

We can offer this extensive coverage when a SELECT ShingleMaster installs an Integrity Roof System because CertainTeed roofing products are produced with quality materials and advanced manufacturing methods to exacting standards of excellence. That means problems rarely occur. But should a defect arise during the SureStart PLUS Coverage period, CertainTeed protects you with non- prorated payment for the following if required to repair or replace any defective CertainTeed roofing product:

  • Materials and labor costs.
  • Roof tear-off expenses.
  • Disposal expenses (not included with 3-STAR Coverage).

  • The warranty can be fully transferred from the original consumer to the subsequent property owner during an extended period of years.
  • Unlike most warranties that limit the transfer period to five or ten years, SureStart PLUS gives you an extra advantage should you decide to sell your home.
  • The wind warranty for lifetime shingles can be upgraded to 130 mph.
