Establishing a Standard
The Good Housekeeping magazine introduced its seal of approval in 1909. The seal of approval is awarded to products that are able to undergo and pass rigorous standards set by the Good Housekeeping, allowing the GHI (Good Housekeeping Institute) to confidently suggest dependable products to their consumers.
The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval
The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval is a symbol of the Good Housekeeping Consumer Policy. This is a limited warranty in the form of a refund, repair or replacement of the product if it has the Seal of Approval when it is found defective within two years of purchase. As a consumer, this gives you peace of mind when investing in products that protect your home making it a smart investment.
Making a Smart Purchase
In a market where there are numerous claims, the Good Housekeeping offers you guidance when making a purchase. This warranty gives you financial protection that other labels, certifications and recommendations or awards do not. In addition to finding the most superior product, finding the most reliable contractor for service is equally important. A few tips for finding the right contractor for your home include using the Better Business Bureau, Google reviews and local area chamber. By using these tools you will find a reputable contractor and make your home improvement project a more enjoyable one.
Reviewing Product Effectiveness
Products are evaluated by their effectiveness, as well as packaging and marketing claims. LeafGuard® Brand Gutters were evaluated for six weeks in the laboratory by the GHI to ensure that the LeafGuard® System met consumer expectations and performed as promised. The technicians at the Institute tested all the features of strength, quality, and durability that are part of a LeafGuard® gutter system. The Engineering Lab’s in-depth evaluations of GAF Roofing established that the shingles are ultra-strong and long-lasting, pass the industry’s toughest wind tests, and will help protect your home against fire.
