How Do You Know You Can Trust A Stamford-Area Exterior Contractor To Do Quality Work? Look At Their Certifications
Make Sure You Choose An Exterior Remodeler Who Is Trained And Certified To Handle Your Installation
Choosing a roofing or siding contractor in Stamford, CT and across Fairfield/Westchester Counties can be a gamble.
How do REALLY know you can trust them to do a good job? How do you know they will install everything the way it’s supposed to be? After all, contractors are on the Better Business Bureau’s “Most Complained About” list every year. Homeowners must be getting burned by bad installation practices.
One of the best ways to know you’re going to get quality installation—BEFORE you sign on the dotted line—is to look at a contractor’s certifications. If they’re manufacturer-certified, you can be sure they are going to follow manufacturer-recommended installation methods.
Strictly adhering to manufacturer specifications is important for two reasons:
- It ensures the job is done right.
- It ensures your product warranties are valid.
At Signature Exteriors, we’ve earned many manufacturer certifications. Here’s a look:

We’re in the 1% of roofers with the GAF President’s Club distinction.
