Ripon, CA – May 1, 2015: Nushake Roofing & Insulation, Inc.

Nushake Roofing & Insulation, Inc., of Ripon, California, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Nushake Roofing & Insulation 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.

Nushake Roofing & Insulation has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2011. 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.

Doug Heath, owner and chief executive officer, started Nushake Roofing as a one-man company in 1976. “But I stayed ‘on the roof’ into my forties, as the company grew, and I’m still hands-on–I still go out to the job sites. A lot of employees who have been with us more than 15 years were trained personally by me, side-by-side on those roofs.”

Since 1976, Nushake has grown steadily. “What so good about Nushake is that we’re centrally located,” says Heath, “in the third-largest population hub of the United States. Because of our location, we’re able to cover Sacramento, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Concord, even all the way down to Fresno.”

Even with such a large geographic footprint, Nushake remains a family-oriented company that is a recognizable part of the local community. “We’re well-established and pretty visible,” explains Heath. “We don’t subcontract, and we do all of our work in-house. Many times, we’re able to take off a roof, put down plywood, and have it watertight at the end of that same day. It’s a real advantage, one that other companies don’t have.”

Heath continues, “Customers have the security of knowing that we’re using materials from GAF, and that’s complemented by having the roof installed by a contractor that’s been around for a long time. We have good professional crews with a lot of years of experience. Many of our people are bilingual, which is a great help to communicate with a large customer base.”

Nushake is involved with the community, working with the Boys & Girls Clubs, the Ripon Swim Club, and local school music programs. The company name was also on a race car in the Long Beach Grand Prix in 2014. “And here’s something interesting,” adds Heath. “There’s a street named after us! Look for Nushake Way the next time you’re in Manteca, California.”

The company has received the Angie’s List Super Service Award for the last four years and just received an award from the Better Business Bureau – celebrating 25 consecutive years of A+ ratings! As Nushake prepares to celebrate its 40th year in business in 2016, the company has no plans of slowing down. “We’d like to become more involved in commercial roofing,” concludes Heath, “and we conduct ongoing training with GAF. I want to continue doing what we’re doing as the area’s leading roofing company.”
