FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Raleigh, NC – May 24, 2018: Baker Roofing Company
Baker Roofing Company of Raleigh, North Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Baker Roofing Company 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.
Baker Roofing Company has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 1997. 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 (in states that require it), maintain insurance, 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.
Baker Roofing Company has some fame beyond the local area and outside the roofing industry, thanks to a sign made by its founder in 1915–a sign that, today, still hangs in the lobby of the company’s Raleigh headquarters. It reads: “We shall do good work. At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always good work.” The sign continues to be a daily reminder of the values that drive Baker Roofing as a team and as an organization.
The company offers its residential customers a comprehensive list of services, including roofing, siding, windows, doors, decks, sunrooms, and gutters. Baker Roofing works on diverse roofing types, including asphalt shingle, metal, slate, clay tile, cedar shake, and synthetic tile.
Committed to sustainable operating and business practices, both on the job site and in the office, the company has made intentional decisions to integrate certain strategies in its normal operations. In 2009, Baker Roofing launched a renewable energy division to design, engineer, and install photovoltaic, solar-thermal, and wind-power systems, with some single systems exceeding 1 MW in power-generation capacity. The company also has a vegetative roofing department that conducts installations on residential, commercial, and government-facility roofs. Recycling is also important at Baker Roofing, which has not only an in-office plastics and paper recycling program but a shingle-recycling program for all asphalt shingles removed during residential and commercial re-roofing projects.
Founder W.P. Baker was active in the community–a practice that survives in the company to this day. Baker Roofing supports numerous charitable endeavors, including the Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County, Habitat for Humanity, Step Up Ministries, and Jobs for Life. The company was won numerous awards; on multiple occasions, Baker Roofing has received the Angie’s List Super Service Award and Indy Week’s “Best of the Triangle” Award. Baker Roofing is a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association and a GAF Certified Green Roofer(TM).
The “We shall do good work” sign from 1915 continues to communicate the organization’s commitment to its customers. Baker Roofing Company looks forward to completing customers’ new construction and home-renovation projects for many years to come.
