FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Columbia, SC – May 24, 2018: Burgin Roofing Services
Burgin Roofing Services of Columbia, South Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Burgin Roofing Services 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.
Burgin Roofing Services has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2008. 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.
Being the “go-to” roofer in the local community is the goal of Burgin Roofing Services. “We’re not storm chasers,” according to owner Stuart Burgin. “This is our community; we don’t work outside of our market. We take care of people here in Columbia and concentrate on the local market.”
The company’s professionalism offers peace of mind to consumers. “Everyone here is an in-house employee; we don’t use subcontractors,” says Burgin. “Also, we don’t take deposits or withdrawals–we don’t accept any money until the customer is completely satisfied.”
The value and quality provided by Burgin Roofing’s services set it apart from its competitors. “We don’t try to be the low bidder on jobs,” explains Burgin. “We use only top-quality materials. On every job, we have a full-time superintendent who supervises the property and the crew, from start to completion. And we maintain an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.”
Burgin Roofing is deeply involved with charitable works, including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The company is also committed to veterans’ causes. “We’ve worked with several veterans’ associations,” says Burgin, “and we provide special discounts to vets and active-duty military. Not only do we participate in the Roofs for Troops promotion, but we also match GAF’s promotion, dollar for dollar. With some local veterans, we’ve actually donated the materials and labor to replace their roofs.” The company also donates several roofs locally each year as a private initiative.
Moving forward, Burgin Roofing is committed to taking care of the customers in its community and branching into some new initiatives. “We plan on expanding out into some new areas, including solar–we’ll get into the solar market in the next year or two.” Burgin concludes: “Our goal is to keep our reputation solid–to maintain our reputation and quality in this market.”
