CertainTeed, North America’s leading brand of exterior and interior building products, has recognized Mike Sikora’s Dayton Home Improvement Center (DHI) with the two highest certifications for roofing contractors for all of its shingle products. The Master Shingle Applicator™ (MSA) and SELECT ShingleMaster®credentials are awarded to top-notch roofing professionals like the Sikora workforce who have been properly trained in every aspect of shingle installation techniques using the approved procedures for installing all CertainTeed roofing systems.
The Master Shingle Applicator™ status is a requirement for all roofers to achieve the higher level SELECT ShingleMaster® qualification. It signifies that Sikora’s roofers are held to the highest workforce standards in delivering a high-quality job using CertainTeed’s shingle roof systems that are guaranteed to meet stringent warranty compliance. The elite training program utilizes CertainTeed’s proprietary manual and educates roofers in topics such as good workmanship practices, roof systems, estimating, flashing, ventilation, and installation instructions for all of CertainTeed’s shingle products.
As a CertainTeed ShingleMaster® Sikora must employ a MSA qualified workforce including one job supervisor and at least two installers who have passed CertainTeed’s ShingleMaster® credentialed course. The course allows Sikora’s DHI to offer the SureStart™, PLUS 3-STAR and 4-STAR coverage warranty extensions for CertainTeed roofing systems.
Both certifications require advanced training and testing every two years to renew certification and maintain credentialed status in good standing.
