FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Sarasota, FL – June 11, 2018: Roofing by Curry
Roofing by Curry of Sarasota, Florida, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Roofing by Curry 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.
Roofing by Curry has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2009. 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 (in states that require it), maintain insurance, 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.
Longevity and size mean stability to customers, according to Jesse Curry, vice president of Roofing by Curry. “With more than 100 employees, we’re fairly large for a roofing company. We’ve been in the Sarasota area since 1994, and we were installing roofs before that, since 1986. People see that; combine that with the referrals customers get from friends and relatives, add in the value we offer, and top it off with the quality products and our warranties. That’s a recipe for success.”
Mostly focused on residential roofing, Roofing by Curry also works with other types of roofs and materials. “As GAF contractors, we do a lot of shingle work,” explains Curry. “We also work with metal and cement-tile roofs. We do some low-slope roofs and some commercial, an area we’re moving into more. We’ve also done some more complex projects, with multi-units and homeowner associations. Mostly, though, we’re focused on marketing and branding for residential consumers.”
The company assigns a high value to honesty and responsibility. “We desire to do jobs right for our customers,” says Curry. “The employees are important; we care about our people, who care about what they’re doing. We tell customers ‘Why Worry, Call Curry!’–it’s on our website! It’s not just a catchy line that people remember–we take it very seriously.”
Roofing by Curry cares about the community, too, participating in GAF’s No Roof Left Behind(TM) program. “It’s been a blessing to us,” states Curry. “Twice a year, one finalist from our community is chosen to get free new roof with a celebration event afterwards. At first, we had the good feeling that we were helping folks; then, when we saw the positive effect we were having, filling real needs in the recipients’ lives, it became more significant. After that, I noticed something among the staff here; the program has had a profound effect, that we were serious about our values and mission statement. We’re actually a different type of company now–I saw a return from that program that was much more than what we expected. It’s something we always wanted to do, and No Roof Left Behind gives us the exact tools we need to do it!”
“Going forward, we plan to continue refining our production processes and to increase our New Construction division,” states Curry. The company desires to improve in all aspects of its business, particularly in safety, taking on larger projects, and developing areas of in-house expansion. “Our authenticity draws people,” concludes Curry. “When we installed one of the free roofs, the homeowner noticed our crew laughing and having a good time while they worked. She said, ‘That’s impressive, because they look like they really enjoy what they’re doing.’ That is truly what we really want, and having a customer say it really blessed my heart!”
