B & J Roofing Inc. of Redmond was recently honored with CertainTeed Corporation’s Select ShingleMaster Tenured Member Status. This top level roofing credential represents the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry. B & J Roofing shares the distinction with only a small number of other roofing companies in the U.S. and Canada, having participated in the leading manufacturer credential program for 10 years.

“We are pleased to recognize B & J Roofing as a Tenured Select ShingleMaster,” says Jay Butch, director of contractor programs for CertainTeed Roofing. “For more than a decade, they have consistently complied with program standards, which in turn, provide them with business tools to assist their company operations, while offering a higher level of service to their customers.”

The program provides contractors with high-level training and tools to improve installation skills, and enhanced roofing product information. To attain CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster Member status, contractors must meet the most stringent requirements in the roofing industry. Select companies must have proof of current liability and worker’s compensation insurance. In addition, the company must ensure 50 percent of their shingle installation crew, plus all job supervisors, have passed the CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator test and employ at least one person who passed the CertainTeed Shingle Quality Specialist test.

As outlined, a Select ShingleMaster has shown extensive knowledge of shingle installation and quality through rigorous testing. Only they can offer CertainTeed’s highest level of SureStart Plus extended warranty coverage when an Integrity Roof System is installed on a home.
