Milan, IL – May 26, 2017: The Acri Company

The Acri Company of Milan, Illinois, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes The Acri Company 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: the Performance pathway, where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection; the Reliability pathway, where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection; and the Service pathway, where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

The Acri Company has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2003; the company received the President’s Club Award due to its excellent performance in 2016. 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, maintain insurance (in states that require it), have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.

Ranked by Qualified Remodeler magazine as #107 of the top 500 remodeling companies in the United States, The Acri Company has been satisfying clients since 1967. A family-owned-and-operated business, the company offers interior and exterior home-improvement services across Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

More than just a roofing contractor, The Acri Company provides a full range of home improvements, including replacement windows, vinyl and steel siding, bathroom remodeling, fiberglass and steel entry doors, all-season sun rooms, decks, kitchen remodeling, and gutter protection. The company utilizes only the highest-quality subcontractors who have current and verified liability insurance.

With its Customer Referral Program, the company offers incentives to existing customers while serving new ones. If a newly referred customer make a minimum purchase of $1,000 in services, The Acri Company sends the referring customer a check for $100. Existing customers may make as many referrals as they like.

The Acri Company is a zero-debt company; it owns all operations buildings, vehicles, and equipment. A wholly-owned financial division gives customers an option for project financing other than typical banking institutions.

Previous customer testimonials include such sentiments as “Thank you for being perfectionists at your job!” and describe how proud the homeowner is to display the Acri sign in the front yard. With such a history of satisfied homeowners, The Acri Company can assure prospective clients that it is truly a “one-stop source” for their home-improvement needs.
