In addition to the actual hands-on installation of each of these trims, Certified™ Metal Roof Contractors are required to complete and document (3) metal roofing projects that cover each of the above mentioned installation details completed to recommended manufacturer specifications for submission and use as case study by GulfCoast Supply.
To ensure that correct practices are being demonstrated, GulfCoast Certified™ Contractors must consult with one of our GulfCoast Factory Certified instructors for a minimum of 4 hours on-site with a satisfactory review free of any major delinquencies in installation.
For each unique project, participating metal roof contractors will be responsible for issuing the homeowner a satisfactory 5 point quality workmanship review inspection that shows that they have installed the metal roof project to manufacturer specifications. Water tightness and pleasing aesthetics will be covered in the following areas:
1.) Inspection and Repair of All Rotten Wood

Homeowners will be responsible for signing off on their overall approval of the project and will be given the opportunity to “rate” their metal roof contractors performance.
