FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Houston, TX – May 24, 2016: Ideal Roofing
Ideal Roofing of Houston, Texas, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Ideal Roofing 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 President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a contractor must demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Consumer Protection, and Installer Training.
Ideal Roofing 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 have achieved–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
“A roof is a roof” may be a motto at some contractors, but not at long-time Master Elite(R) contractor Ideal Roofing. “We educate homeowners, get them involved in the process, and show them all their options,” according to owner Jim Hardwick. “Because we’ve been in business here so long, they trust us to give them the best that’s available. When we receive feedback, the homeowners tell us that they did indeed get high-quality roofs.”
Although family-owned Ideal Roofing still considers itself a small local company, it handles a diverse array of home improvements and services: both residential and commercial roofs, metal roofs, gutters, siding, windows and skylights, and storm-damage repair. “Our longevity is part of the reason we can provide all these services,” explains Hardwick. “Some of our people–crews, salesmen, office people–have been with us for more than 15 years.”
“The high quality of materials and craftsmanship goes into every roofing job,” continues Hardwick. “We offer GAF’s Golden Pledge warranty, and customers who want it need only sign up for it. But we install every job as if it’s a Golden Pledge warranty–that’s something that really separates us from other contractors. Every job will exhibit the same high-quality materials and high level of craftsmanship.”
Ideal Roofing gives back to the community. “We work with charities,” says Hardwick. “One of the organizations is Trinity Oaks out of San Antonio, which uses hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities to work with veterans and also to provide game meat for the needy. We also work with FACE, which helps autistic kids by raising money for scholarships.” Featured on a news channel for doing some charitable work for homeowners who had trees on their roofs, the company is regularly consulted by local news media as the “go-to” experts to offer advice and answer questions concerning contractors.
Going forward, Ideal will continue to offer the same diversity of services and high quality of workmanship. “For some years, we’ve been branching out into other exterior services, like siding,” concludes Hardwick, “and we’ll continue to increase that part of our company. And we certainly want to repeat the President’s Club Award–it says something important to the homeowners and about our commitment as a company.”
