Tampa, FL – June 26, 2017: American Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc.

American Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc., of Tampa, Florida, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes American Roofing & Sheet Metal 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: the Performance pathway, where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection; the Reliability pathway, where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection; and the Service pathway, where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

American Roofing & Sheet Metal has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2009; the company received the President’s Club Award due to its excellent performance in 2016. 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.

Since 2004, American Roofing & Sheet Metal has been providing prompt and friendly roofing services to commercial and residential customers in the Tampa Bay region. Starting as a general contractor, president and CEO Albert Docobo founded the parent company, The Docobo Corporation, in 1998 to build on a tradition of excellence and provide 100% customer satisfaction with roofing installations. According to Docobo, “We routinely hear from clients that constant communication throughout the roofing process is what makes us stand out from other roofers and contractors. Our customers are always ‘in the know’ about what to expect and what we’ve accomplished.”

Steady growth over the years is attributable to dedicated staff who recognize and enforce the company’s mission from the first meeting through the final inspection. “Our employees get compensation for customer satisfaction, not production volume,” explains Docobo. “If employees make the customers happy and ensure the job is completed exactly as required, then the sales volume naturally follows. We maintain a great crew. We’re on track to break a sales record in 2017, so our goal is to achieve that while keeping customer satisfaction as close as possible to 100%.”

The company has an unwavering commitment to the communities in which it works. American Roofing & Sheet Metal supports charities serving Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco Counties, including the Hillsborough County Sheriff Charities Foundation, the Wounded Warrior Project, Operation Helping Hand, Habitat for Humanity, and many local churches. It also participates in GAF’s Roofs for Troops promotion and offers additional discounts to veterans. A GAF Certified SlateCrafter (TM), American Roofing & Sheet Metal is a member of the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association and the National Roofing Contractors Association, and it holds an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.

The company has recently rolled out some preventative maintenance packages for homeowners. “For years, we’ve offered such plans for commercial buildings,” says Docobo, “but now we also have good, economical plans for houses that should prove to extend roof life and identify problems before they arise.”

By following its own “American Roofing & Sheet Metal Installation Standards,” the company will continue to meet or exceed industry standards and provide a consistent level of quality workmanship. “Our reputation in the community is perhaps our greatest source of business and referrals,” concludes Docobo. “If we’re out in the community helping others and staying engaged socially, we make friends who trust us–and who want to do business with us.”
