FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Greensboro, NC – June 4, 2018: Greensboro Roofing Co., Inc.
Greensboro Roofing Co., Inc., of Greensboro, North Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Greensboro Roofing as one of the “elite of the elite” commercial roofing contractors in the United States.
GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Select(TM) Contractors can compete for its commercial President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a commercial 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.
To become a Master Select(TM) Contractor–a status that less than 1% 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.
Greensboro Roofing Co. is the oldest family-owned commercial/industrial roofing company in Piedmont North Carolina. “Of course, price is the major reason for our success,” according to president Terry Glidewell, “but we’ve also built a reputation for quality workmanship and attention to detail, on every project, large or small. Our employees are conscientious and strive for perfection on each project. In fact, 90% of our projects that are inspected by the roofing manufacturer–prior to issuing their no-dollar-limit warranty–receive a rating of 10 for workmanship.”
A built-up roof-system specialist, Greensboro Roofing works with a variety of roofing systems and materials. Services include new construction/re-roofs, modified bitumen, TPO, PVC, EPDM, architectural metal, slate, and concrete tile. Other building services include roof inspections, maintenance programs, and infrared moisture surveys. The company has a complete in-house metal fabrication shop and 25,000 square feet of warehouse storage for all necessary roofing equipment and materials.
Greensboro Roofing has received several professional certifications from GAF. The Asphaltic Certification indicates that the contractor specializes in installing asphaltic roofing systems, and the Single-Ply Certification indicates a specialization in installing single-ply roofing systems. With the Topcoat Certification, Greensboro Roofing is recognized for specializing in the installation of GAF’s TOPCOAT(R) products–liquid-applied roofing restoration systems formulated to stand up to the harshest of roof conditions and provide energy savings at a fraction of the cost of a new roof.
The company has always worked to help improve the communities it serves. “We are active in our community,” adds Glidewell, “from donating roofing materials and labor to the Greensboro Children’s Museum, to PTA projects at local schools, to giving monetary donations to local charities, Special Olympics, and the Boys and Girls Clubs.” The company is a member of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, the National Roofing Contractors Association, the Greensboro Builders Association, and the American Subcontractors Association. It is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, holding an A+ rating.
Going forward, the company wishes to continue maintaining a safe, secure work environment, one where employees know they are appreciated. “Dedication to our staff explains why we have an excellent safety record and many long-term employees,” says Glidewell. He concludes: “Over the history of our company, we’ve seen just about everything related to roofing materials and systems. As we continually educate customers on the different systems and the life expectancy of each, we hope that some of the proven, long-lasting roofing systems will regain popularity in the marketplace. At Greensboro Roofing, we want our customers to get the best, longest-lasting roof system for their money.”
