Sarasota, FL – June 15, 2015 – Roofing by Curry of Sarasota, Florida, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: 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 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.
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 have achieved–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
Longevity and size mean stability to customers, according to Gary Curry, president of Roofing by Curry. “We’re fairly large for a roofing company with over 100 employees. We have been in the roofing business in the Sarasota/Manatee county area since 1986; prior to that I was installing roofs since 1972 in Michigan. People see our longevity, combine that with our customer referrals, add in the value we offer and top it off with 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. This year, we’ve done 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 most 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 and all company vehicles! 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 the No Roof Left Behind(TM) program sponsored by GAF. “It’s been a blessing to us,” states Curry. “We’ve done several of these roofs so far. 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 are serious about our values and mission statement. Coming together as a team to help others has made a better company, we have more purpose than just installing roofs–I saw a return from that program that was much more than what we expected.”
Going forward, 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!”
