Evansville, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/18/2014 -- Elbert Construction today announced its participation in the GAF Roofs for Troops Program, which is a program that offers active military personnel, veterans, and retirees a $250 rebate off of Lifetime Roofing Systems installed by GAF Master Elite Contractors. GAF, founded in 1886, is America's largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing.
"We are especially excited to be part of this program because it's only open to contractors who have passed GAF's Master Elite Contractor certification process," said a representative of Elbert Construction. "Only 3% of roofing contractors have this certification."
Hiring a Certified Elite contractor is a good way to be sure that the company is truly qualified to put on the best possible roof. The Master Elite program provides contractors with all of the information needed to stay current on ever-improving roofing methods and standards.
The GAF Roofs for Troops Program's requirement for customers to get a Lifetime Roofing System in order to get the rebate isn't as hard as the system's name may imply," Elbert Construction said. "Such a system simply includes a full set of GAF shingles along with three 'roofing accessories.' These accessories are standard parts of many shingling jobs, and include things like starter strip shingles, roof deck protection, and attic ventilation. This makes it very easy to meet the requirement and activate the $250 rebate."
"This program is a way for GAF and us to tip our hats to those who are serving or have served this country as part of the armed forces. We think it's a great way to say thanks while providing an essential service," the spokesman continued.
Of course, no one should wait to get new shingles or roofing replacement in Evansville if their current roof is leaking or otherwise damaged. Any type of water leak will cause the need for expensive repairs far from the apparent water source if it isn't fixed right away. Routine reshingling is also important because it prevents the types of leaks that occur simply due to normal wear and tear on the old shingles.
More and more, getting a new roof is also considered part of home remodeling in Evansville. "The roof is one of the most obvious parts of a house," the company noted. "Therefore, it doesn't make sense to ignore the way it looks. A proper roof design will greatly enhance the architectural appeal of the structure instead of merely providing protection from the weather."
