Kansas, MO (PressExposure) February 20, 2012 -- MB Roofing, Inc. - Local roofing company MB Roofing Inc., joins the Preferred Contractor list of giant roofing manufacturer Owens Corning. MB Roofing Inc. joins an elite list of Kansas City roofers who meet Owens Corning stringent standards.
MB Roofing, Inc. is a local roofing company that has been operating in Kansas City for over 15 years. With over a decade of experience, the company is considered as one of the trusted local roofing companies in the area. MB Roofing Inc., adds another feather to its cap by becoming a member of the prestigious Preferred Contractor program of Owens Corning.
The Owens Corning Preferred Contractor Program
Owens Corning is a roofing manufacturer known for high quality asphalt shingles and other roofing components. To control and maintain the quality of its products, the roofing manufacturer introduced a contractor training and accreditation program designed to train select Kansas City roofers and others nationwide in installing Owens Corning products and roofing systems.
The set of criteria that roofers and roofing contractors have to pass to join this elite program are as follows:
At least be in business for three years
No negative actions (liens, legal actions, judgment) filed against the company in the past five years
Clear credit record
Possess all required valid state and local licenses
General liability insurance
Positive professional and customer references
No bankruptcies in the past seven years
MB Roofing, Inc. passed all requirements and even surpassed the minimum set by the criteria. With membership to the Owens Corning Preferred Contractor Program, Kansas City roofers are trained in better installation methods of asphalt shingles and components in accordance to Owens Corning's standards.
How Homeowners Benefit from the Program
Professional roofers are not the only ones who benefit from this training program. Even homeowners are slated to receive a benefit, even indirectly, from the training and certifications professional roofers receive.
One benefit that particularly stands out is this: Homeowners who chose to use Owens Corning roofing products and hire a preferred contractor to do the installation can get extra years on their warranty. By hiring a preferred contractor, a homeowner can get an extra 40 years non-prorated coverage on his warranty in addition to the standard 10 years usually provided by Owens Corning. It must also be noted that all Owens Corning shingle warranties in Canada and the United States are transferable once to the next owner of the property should a homeowner decide to sell.
With MB Roofing, Inc. Kansas City homeowners can enjoy the benefits other Owens Corning patrons have enjoyed over the years.
