Master Shingle Certified: What Does it Mean?

May. 292022

Having a quality roof is essential to protecting your home. Your roof shields your home from the elements – such as snow, rain, hail, and debris– and also seals in climate-controlled air, improving energy efficiency. This is why having an educated and qualified team install your roof is one of the best choices you can make for your home. 

Here at James & Whitney Co., all of our roofers are CertainTeed Shingle Master Certified, meaning they are more than prepared to provide you with the highest quality roof for your home. Now, you may be asking, what does it mean to be a CertainTeed Shingle Master certified? What kind of value does this add to the roofing process? 

Simply put, a CertainTeed Shingle Master certification is an education-based credential that represents extensive knowledge of the shingle installation process. This certification provides us with a credentialed workforce that offers superior workmanship in all aspects of the roofing process.
