What Does It Mean to Be an Owens Corning Platinum-Preferred Contractor?

What Does It Mean to Be an Owens Corning Platinum-Preferred Contractor?If you poke around our website long enough, you will find out that Done Rite Roofing is an Owens Corning Platinum-Preferred Contractor. But what does that mean, exactly, and why should it convince you to call us for an estimate?

We’ll break it down for you.

It means a third party has checked the quality of our craftsmanship.

Manufacturers really want customers to have a great experience with their products—that’s how they stay in business. This can only happen two ways.

The first way, the manufacturer can control. They have to make the best products they can possibly make.

The second factor is outside of their control: those products have to be installed correctly. The best shingle in the world simply cannot give customers a great experience if it is installed incorrectly. That’s why manufacturers launch these programs.

But no roofer can prove high-quality craftsmanship without allowing their work to be put to the test. This means allowing our work to undergo rigorous quality inspections by an Owens Corning evaluator.

This is great news for you. Few homeowners have the know-how to discover whether a roofer knows what he’s doing. It’s good to know there’s someone qualified saying: yes, these guys do amazing work.

Preferred Contractor status serves as proof of insurance.

In previous posts you’ve learned why you want to be absolutely sure your contractor is insured. In many cases, however, your only recourse is to ask and to hope you’re not being lied to when you get your answer.

When you’re dealing with a Preferred Contractor, however, you can rest easy. Owens-Corning will not award this status to any company which does not carry at least $1,000,000 in general liability insurance.

Preferred Contractor status tells you the roofer pays his or her bills.

Remember, contractors who don’t pay their bills can get you into hot water when their subcontractors or suppliers slap a lien on your house. And short of seeing lots of happy customers on third-party review sites (who might not have known about financial trouble before writing the review) you have no way of verifying whether most roofers are going to take care of their financial obligations.

But with us, you get a clue, since our Platinum Preferred Contractor status required us to pass a Dun & Bradstreet credit analysis.

You get to take advantage of an amazing warranty.

The Platinum Protection Roofing System warranty may only be offered by Owens Corning Preferred Platinum Contractors. This is a lifetime workmanship and materials warranty with an 130 MPH wind rating, a 15-year wind warranty and a 15-year algae warranty. You don’t get much better warranty protection than that.

We’ve taken all of this a step further.

So, we’ve told you why it is a great idea to call any Owens Corning Preferred Platinum Contractor, but why call us, specifically?

Because Owens Corning has invited us to sit on their Contractor Advisory Board. Only 14 companies in the nation were granted that honor, and only one of them came from Florida. You can read more about our seat on the Board by clicking here.

Bottom line? You have every indication that we’re a roofing company of exceptional quality. Call us to schedule your free estimate today.
