CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster

Chinook Roofing & Gutters carries a number of manufacturer credentials that help show that the quality of our roofing is a cut above the rest. Did you know Chinook Roofing carries the status of SELECT ShingleMaster with our primary shingle manufacturer, CertainTeed?

What Is the SELECT ShingleMaster Credential?

The coveted SELECT ShingleMaster credential is reserved only for top-notch professional roofers who have a proven track record with CertainTeed roofing products and whose crews and crew leaders have been trained in proper installation techniques. To become a SELECT ShingleMaster, a roofing company must meet the following qualifications:

  • The company must have been in business for at least five years or be a CertainTeed ShingleMaster for one year.
  • At least 50% of your shingle installation crew, including crew supervisors, must be Master Shingle Applicator-qualified through CertainTeed. This means they have received training in good workmanship practices, roof systems, estimating, flashing, ventilation, and product installation for all CertainTeed shingle products.
  • The company must employ at least one current Shingle Quality Specialist who has undergone training, has a deep understanding of the shingle design and manufacturing process, and can confidently explain the benefits of higher quality shingles.
  • The company’s owner must pass a Business Fiscal Responsibility Exam.
  • The company must hold current worker’s compensation insurance under law as well as liability insurance that covers roofing.
