FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Grandview, MO – July 14, 2016: Pyramid Roofing Company, Inc.
Pyramid Roofing Company, Inc., of Grandview, Missouri, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF has to offer: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Pyramid Roofing Company as one of the “elite of the elite” among 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 demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Property Owner Protection, and Installer Training.
Pyramid Roofing Company has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2009. To become a Master Select(TM) Contractor–a status that less than 1% 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.
In the Kansas City area, roofing contractors come and go; the average lifespan of a roofing company in this part of Missouri is three to five years. Pyramid Roofing, though, is an exception to that. “We’ve been here, under the same ownership, for more than 20 years,” according to owner Doug Galant. “When customers realize that we’ve been in the community for that length of time, they know we’re here for the long haul, and it puts their minds at ease.”
Longevity joins with other factors to make Pyramid appealing to customers. “Often, we’re recommended to a homeowner by someone he or she trusts: an insurance agent, an adjustor, a friend, or a neighbor,” says Galant. “When you combine those good referrals with competitive pricing and strong warranties–well, it’s pretty hard to beat.”
“We’re not just two guys in a truck,” continues Galant. “We’ve got a large office building and warehouse, as well as a team of professionals, including roofing installers and former insurance claims representatives. Our staff brings a lot of knowledge to the table.”
Pyramid Roofing gives back, and the company plans to deepen its community involvement going forward. “It’s important to be more established in charitable contributions to the community,” explains Galant. “We want to increase that, with more donated time this year. Each employee is challenged to pick a charity or cause and work towards that, representing Pyramid while doing so. We’ve donated to local food drives, and we’ll work more with that. We’ve also assisted with materials and labor to a family where the husband was being deployed for military service.”
According to Galant, an increased presence in the social-media world is another important goal. “We’ve realized how important this is. We revamped our website and upgraded our television advertising, and we still continue with traditional print ads and the Yellow Pages. We actively participate on Facebook and Twitter. It’s the way of the future, and we’re keeping up with it.”
Galant concludes by affirming Pyramid’s connection to GAF. “We love to support GAF and its products–those products are our branding. And we’re honored to be a member of the President’s Club. We’re going to keep getting better and gaining steady growth. The best way to continue on the path we’re on is to get as close to 100% customer satisfaction as possible, this year and every year going forward.”
