The most common reason for roof failure I come across in Toronto are always related to a lack of roofing education and training. Improper installation of roofing products, whether by the homeowner themselves or a poor-quality roofing contractor, always yield the same results.
Sudden and damaging leaks in the home after poor weather (or a long winter) are common and these roofs fail long before they should.
By seeking out a roofing company that focuses on honing the skills, roofing education and training of its workers, you will reap the benefits of doing your due diligence in the hiring process of a roofing contractor. Archer Roofing is definitely one of those roofing companies.
Roofing is about more than just putting new shingles on a roof, it’s about knowing building science, what lies beneath the roof, ventilation techniques, flashing detailing, gutter repair and knowledge of quality roofing products to ensure the overall health and well being of a roof.
Aside from improving the skills of my crew through on-site training and hands-on experience, having workers understand the reasoning behind the comprehensive steps we take on the job site is key to building a solid team.
As a result, our workers are expedient but take no shortcuts with our client’s roofs or with their own safety.
IHSA offers many roofing safety courses in Toronto that Archer Roofing crew members participate in, including the Working at Heights program and Propane Handling, which are integral to ensuring a safe and responsible work place.
In addition, several months ago, we were invited to participate in CertainTeed’s ShingleMaster Training and Certification Program. Since CertainTeed’s products are one of the select roofing products that meets our stringent criteria for quality and durability, we were excited to take part in their qualification process.
As we embarked on this process, we discovered that the standards and procedures we have always employed at Archer Roofing not only met CertainTeed’s requirements, but also surpassed them. Their testing and credential program is the most comprehensive in the industry, and it reinforced the correct techniques, material and roof system knowledge that we have always practiced at Archer Roofing.
Looks like our commitment to roofing education and training is paying-off.
Having passed all of CertainTeed’s qualifications and tests, Archer Roofing contractors are “ShingleMaster” certified, which means that our workmanship will be monitored by CertainTeed to ensure that every roof we install their products on is in compliance with their standards, or we risk losing our certification.
This also makes it possible for us to offer CertainTeed’s SureStart™ PLUS extended warranty coverage, as CertainTeed trusts our high workmanship standards and installation techniques.
