As the roofing industry is a competitive business to be in, contractors are constantly doing their best to get new certifications. This is so not only they can prove their experience, expertise and reliability, but increase their skill set as well. One of the most sought after certifications that roofers try to obtain is the HAAG certification.
What Is the HAAG Certification and How to Obtain It
The HAAG certification is a certification training program that can only be earned by adjusters, estimators, home inspectors, contractors and other roofing industry professionals who are looking to improve their skills. Those who aspire to earn it must first complete a variety of prerequisites before they can be accepted into the certification program itself. Once they’re accepted, they undergo three days of intensive training by HAAG Certified Engineers, forensic engineers and experts who are considered industry leaders with 300 years of combined experience.
Once a contractor has completed the course, the person will have to complete a comprehensive exam, assessing knowledge of advanced damage assessment techniques and philosophies. When contractors pass, they are now a HAAG Certified Inspector and must retake the test every year to prove that they maintained their knowledge.
Why You Should Work With a HAAG-Certified Contractor
When you need to get any roofing work done, it’s highly recommended that you work with a roofing company that has a HAAG-certified contractor. This is because, thanks to their skills and knowledge gained from working with forensic engineers, they know how to assess all major types of damage in commercial roofing systems. Apart from that, they are also well-versed in weather characteristics, codes and industry standards, roof area calculations and inspection safety.
And, if that isn’t enough, they also know about installation, weathering, repair costs and maintenance needs of every major roofing type. Simply put by working with a HAAG-certified contractor, you’re bound to get the best service possible for your roofing system.
