The Mark of a True Professional
“Haag Certified.” In the roofing and insurance industries, that phrase carries a lot of weight. It means you’re a true authority in your business. It means you can quickly and accurately inspect for damage and correctly evaluate that damage. And it means that when you report your findings, your conclusions have true credibility.
The Haag Certified Inspector – Residential Roof program is designed to make you highly proficient with all major types of residential (steep-slope) roofs. You’ll learn how hail and wind interact with roofing, inspection safety techniques, roof area calculations, and applicable codes. You’ll also gain comprehensive understanding of manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs for each major roofing type — composition, wood shingle/shake, concrete and clay tile, asbestos, fiber cement, and various synthetic, slate, and metal roofing types. Real-world case studies make the information vivid and memorable.
In the Haag Certified Inspector – Commercial Roof program, you’ll learn to assess damage to all major types of commercial (low-slope and flat) roofing systems. You’ll become well versed in inspection safety, roof area calculations, codes and industry standards, and weather characteristics. For each roofing type discussed, instructors profile manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs. The course covers built-up roofing, polymer-modified bitumen roofing, thermoplastic single-ply roofs (PVC and TPO), thermoset plastic single-ply roofs (EPDM, CSPE, PIB), SPF roofing, metal roofing, vegetated (green) roofing, low-slope roofing components, and roof coatings. Case studies illustrate real-world inspection scenarios.
GAF’s Certified Weather Stopper® Roofing Contractor program is a steep-slope program that screens residential roofers and trains them. Only 6% of roofing contractors are in this program, as many roofers are unwilling to go through the process. Becoming a GAF Certified Installer is a special honor.
This is why we are excited and pleased to say that Shield Roofing & Construction is a GAF Certified Weather Stopper Roofing Contractor.
A certification that less than 1% of the contractors in the world can qualify for – The GAF Master Elite certification is our pride and joy. It showcases to the world that we know GAF materials inside and out and always live up to an extremely high level of quality, workmanship and customer service.
If becoming a GAF Certified Installer is a special honor then becoming Master Elite is the highest honor a contractor can aspire to achieve with GAF roofing systems.

The following information is submitted by IICRC as a public service to those who have suffered water-related losses due to storm damage (e.g., hurricane, tornado). Since there are many variables involved in deciding about appropriate restoration steps, users of this information assume any and all liability for implementing the procedures covered herein.
The following recommendations assume water-related storm damage to residential or light commercial structures. For recommendations regarding restoration of major commercial properties and building assemblies, it is important to consult with professionals who have specific training and experience in this area.
Whether insured or not, it is important for property owners to document damage with photographs or video, and immediately begin loss mitigation procedures themselves; or hire a qualified contractor to do this on their behalf. It is totally inappropriate to put off mitigation while waiting for an insurance claims representative to arrive on the scene to evaluate the loss. By that time, in all probability sufficient time will have passed to grow and amplify microorganisms, which may not be covered by insurance. Loss mitigation is defined by insurance policies as “reasonable and prudent measures designed to preserve, protect and secure property from further damage,” including microbial growth and amplification.
The OSHA Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the construction industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
Through this program, workers can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is intended for entry level workers, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation’s productivity.
