FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Edmond, OK – June 30, 2015: Van De Steeg & Associates
Van De Steeg & Associates of Edmond, Oklahoma, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Van De Steeg & Associates 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.
Van De Steeg & Associates has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2002. 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.
Van De Steeg understands that each job comes with its own distinct challenges. “We treat each project with the attention it deserves,” says manager Erik Van De Steeg, “whether it’s replacement of a few shingles or the roof of a commercial multiplex. When we put on a roof, we install the manufacturer’s entire system–felt, ice and water shields, ventilation, shingles, and ridges. And because all our roofing materials are GAF-branded, we’re able to offer longer warranties that are guaranteed by the manufacturer.”
Repairs, maintenance, tear-offs, and reroofs are commonplace in the company’s home location. “Oklahoma’s severe weather systems can cause roof failures,” states Van De Steeg, “as can poor prior workmanship, defective materials, failure to perform regular maintenance, and improper specifications of the roofing system. We can perform regular roofing inspections, not only to estimate needed repairs but for early detection of leaks and failures before they become major (and costly) problems.”
A full-service company, Van De Steeg & Associates also provides construction and repairs in gutters, siding, windows, masonry and poured concrete, carpentry, painting, and steel buildings. “Not only do we provide a variety of services,” adds Van De Steeg, “but we have a focus on quality, as well. Our shingles are hand-nailed. We place a high priority on cleanup during every stage of the roofing job. We have on-the-job supervision for each project, as well as final quality inspections. Customer service–before, during, and after the job–is a priority with us.”
That attention and care carries over into the community and throughout the staff. Van De Steeg supports Breast Cancer Awareness and makes regular donations to Habitat for Humanity. “The President’s Club award is a direct result of the phenomenal support we receive from our team,” explains Van De Steeg. The company has won the The Oklahoman’s Reader’s Choice Award for the past five years and is a current nominee for the 2015 award.
Going forward, the company has plans to better serve customers with a new showroom. “Our old offices are being remodeled, so we’re moving a short distance to a larger office with a showroom,” concludes Van De Steeg. “Homeowners can inspect our materials and use virtual programs to assist in selecting the desired color and style of shingles. It’s another way to show our customers how we strive for quality and workmanship in every project, from start to finish.”
