The Alpha Certification Program

The Alpha Program is a professional certification program which is operated by The International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) W117 working commission. The Alpha Program has been collecting, inspecting and documenting the performance of roofing contractors for over 25 years. This program is for the elite group of contractors that have proven with years of documented performance that they provide the highest level of quality in the roofing industry.

There are strict requirements that all alpha certified contractors must meet before being admitted into the Alpha Program. The requirements are based on 25 years of studying the SPF roofing industry and identifying the requirements for installing problem free SPF roof systems. We encourage all contractors to meet the requirements of our program to join an elite group of performance driven experts.
