St. Augustine, FL – May 16, 2018: Fidus Roofing and Construction, LLC

Fidus Roofing and Construction, LLC, of St. Augustine, Florida, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Fidus Roofing and Construction 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.

Fidus Roofing and Construction 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, 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.

With three distinct divisions (roofing, construction, and pavers), Fidus Roofing is able to offer a number of different services to its customers. “Our customers don’t realize that,” according to company president James Suplee. “They’re surprised to learn that, aside from roofing, we do all kinds of additions, remodeling, and custom homes, as well as patios, driveways, and screen enclosures. So we try to get the word out.”

Fidus has an outstanding reputation throughout its local northeastern Florida market area. “We act and look professional, and we’re known for quality,” explains Suplee. “Our people have a really good, clean-cut image. We also bring a lot of credentials, awards, and certifications, which gives clients better peace of mind in knowing who to hire. The feedback we receive from clients is that they feel so much more comfortable having us work on their projects.”

The company places on emphasis on educating customers, explaining the different options that are available. “We don’t do a hard sell,” states Suplee. “Some roofing choices make more sense than others, and getting the facts from us helps homeowners to make the decisions that are best for them. We want them to feel confident with those decisions. Our company structure helps there, too; most of our competitors are one-man or two-man operations. We have full management and people on staff, so we can help the customer with anything that comes up.”

Harnessing long-term relationships is important to Fidus, both professionally and in the community. The company gives back by helping Habitat for Humanity, doing projects at no cost. Fidus is also a member–one of only 15 contractors in the country–of GAF’s Elite Advisor Program, which meets with GAF to share valuable insight from some of the manufacturing company’s top contractors.

Looking forward, the company wants to continue with steady growth. “We’re focusing on increasing the number of clients for whom we can perform more than one service,” concludes Suplee. “We remind them how we can help with all of their needs–not just roofing–which is another step toward building those long-term relationships. Our clients are fortunate in that there a number of good roofers in this area. But we always make sure that we’re a step ahead of everybody else!”
