Roofing Tips, Tricks and Ideas

CertainTeed Tenured Member Award

Published by Pickard Roofing at

Pickard Roofing is proud to be honored with CertainTeed Corporation’s Select ShingleMaster Tenured Member Status. One of a select few companies in North America to earn this award, the recognition confirms Pickard Roofing’s position within the roofing industry and allows the company to offer customers the highest quality products possible.

What is The CeterainTeed Tenured Member Award?

Because the roofing industry doesn’t have uniform licensing practices across the United States and Canada, CertainTeed offers credentials to roofers that the company works with directly. CertainTeed, of course, is a manufacturer of building materials. The company offers insulation, siding, trim, drywall, decking, fencing, solar panels -- and roofing materials.

For their roofing contractors, CertainTeed offers several different credentials:

  • CertainTeed Credentials
  • Silver Star Contractor (commercial)
  • Gold Star contractor (commercial)
  • ShingleMaster (residential)
  • Select ShingleMaster (residential)

For residential contractors, the Select ShingleMaster credential is the highest award offered by CertainTeed. The award recognizes that a company adheres to the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge within the shingle roofing industry.  

How Do Roofers Earn Select ShingleMaster Recognition?

To ascertain CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster Member status, roofing contractors must meet the most stringent requirements in the residential roofing industry. And, they can’t meet these requirements just once.

Instead, roofing contractors must adhere to CertainTeed’s credentialing standards for 10 continuous years. A single failure to meet these standards in any year results in a contractor being unable to receive this recognition.

Thus, CertainTeed’s few SelectMaster Members have proven that they truly are the best in the business. Their workmanship and customer service have withstood the test of time, and they have a long track record of making customers happy. Their extensive knowledge of shingle quality and installation has been proven by passing rigorous testing as well as through their services to customers.

In recognition of this dedication, CertainTeed stands behind the contractors. They have the company’s confidence in the work they do and the advice they give to homeowners. In other words, homeowners can trust these roofing contractors.

What Can ShingleMaster Select Roofing Contractors Offer?

In addition to expert advice and installation, CertainTeed ShingleMaster Select roofing contractors are able to offer the company’s highest level of warranty coverage. Only through a ShingleMaster Select contractor can you get CertainTeed’s SureStart Plus extended warranty.

This special coverage extends the standard SureStart warranty coverage to as much as 50 years. A wind warranty of up to 130 miles per hour is also included. Should there be covered damage during this half-century time period, materials, labor, tear-off and disposal will all be paid for by the warranty. You won’t have to pay anything out of pocket.

The SureStart Plus warranty is available when an Integrity Roof System is installed, and only when a ShingleMaster Select contractor completes the installation.
