Buffalo, NY – June 21, 2016: The Kaz Companies

The Kaz Companies of Buffalo, New York, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF has to offer: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes The Kaz Companies 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 demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Consumer Protection, and Installer Training.

The Kaz Companies has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2008. 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.

As full-service home-improvement specialists, the folks at The Kaz Companies are experts in every sector of home renovation. “We’re differentiated,” explains president Richard Kazmierczak, “by the fact that everyone here becomes trained and skilled in the department where he or she works. Roofers install only roofing, kitchen and bath installers remodel only kitchens and baths, and so on. Would you want a roofer installing your tile floor or a window installer putting on your roof? Of course not.”

With specialties in kitchens, bathrooms, basement and interior remodels, additions, independent-living renovations for the disabled, roofing, siding, windows, doors, and garage doors, The Kaz Companies provides full service to its customers under one reliable name. “People trust us–and they should,” states Kazmierczak. “Our sales team starts the process by selling people only what they really need. Sometimes, the truth hurts, and so the cost winds up being a bit more–but our customers receive a much better value. Our production team follows up with quality workmanship, communication, and cleanup.”

Customers aren’t the only ones noticing the professionalism at The Kaz Companies. The company’s reputation has earned it recognition from industry publications and civic organizations. Angie’s List has awarded the company its Super Service Award for five consecutive years. The company is a member of Building Performance Institute Accredited Building Analysts, Building Shell and Heating Specialists, West Seneca Chamber of Commerce, Professional Roofing Advisory Council, and Professional Siding Advisory Council. Accredited by the Better Business Bureau, where it holds an A+ rating, The Kaz Companies also helps out in the community; it has completed a number of roofs for Habitat for Humanity and has assisted a local food pantry with an expansion project.

Going forward, the company intends to maintain its momentum. “We had a good year in 2015, and we added new personnel who value our team mentality and company values,” concludes Kazmierczak. “Those team members and their pride in the brand are what make the difference at Kaz. Our goal is to make all customers into referring customers–people who are proud to tell others about the good experience they had with us. As we like to say: ‘We’re a customer-service company that happens to do home improvement!'”
