Tacoma, WA – May 16, 2018: Achten’s Quality Roofing

Achten’s Quality Roofing of Tacoma, Washington, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Achten’s Quality Roofing as one of the “elite of the elite” residential roofing contractors in the United States.

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Elite(R) Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must meet specific criteria in at least one out of three different pathways:

• Performance pathway – where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection
• Reliability pathway – where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection
• Service pathway – where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

Achten’s Quality Roofing has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2010. To become a Master Elite(R) Contractor–a status that less than 2% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing, maintain insurance (in states that require it), have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.

“We value our certified contractors for raising the industry standard year after year by installing the best roofing products and systems. Our President’s Club award recognizes only those contractors who have distinguished themselves by the highest standards of excellence, customer satisfaction, and dependability,” says Jim Slauson, GAF’s VP of Certified Program & Services.

Highly trained and certified by major material suppliers, the company’s technicians are able to install every type of roofing product according to manufacturers’ specifications.

Achten’s Quality Roofing also provides services in gutters, insulation, masonry, siding, skylights, and sun tunnels. During times of severe weather or other roof trauma, the company will tarp off damaged roof areas within 24 hours and handle any emergency repairs. Achten’s Quality Roofing also works with homeowners’ insurance companies to quickly make the home safe, secure, and comfortable once again.

All of the company’s installers are professional roofers who are field-book-tested. Achten’s Quality Roofing does not use subcontractors; every technician is an employee, arriving at the job site in an Achten’s truck, wearing an Achten’s uniform, and with all the equipment needed to complete the project. After project completion, the company sends a quality-control professional to do a 25-point inspection, ensuring that the work meets or exceeds the customer’s expectations and is in accord with local building codes.
