Oreland, PA – June 14, 2015 – Russell Roofing of Oreland, Pennsylvania, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Russell Roofing 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.
Russell Roofing has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 1998. 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.
Many contractors have worked at the sites of historic landmarks and pinnacle properties, but only a select few have done work at the White House. Russell Roofing is one of those few. “We did some custom copper work there; a tree had fallen on an 1850s lantern near one of the entrances,” explains Ron Hall, sales manager. “We couldn’t use any new materials — we had to use the existing copper, refabricate the piece, and put it back together. It was a unique and fun project for us.”
Russell Roofing could work on a historic artifact because the company does more than just roofing. “We do everything on the exterior of a building,” explains Hall. “Fiber-cement siding, vinyl siding, windows, masonry, cedar shakes and cedar craft work, and roofing — we do it all.”
The company has won five national awards from the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). “We really try to get feedback from our customers, to ensure that we’re always doing the right things,” says Hall, “and we’re always achieving 100% satisfaction ratings from them. Our approach is not that we’re a roofing company; rather, we consider ourselves a customer-service business that happens to do roofing and exterior projects.”
In addition to satisfying customers, Russell Roofing gives back to the community. The company partners with GAF’s Roofs for Troops program; it also participates in community days throughout the Philadelphia area and does volunteer work with local churches. “We sponsor baseball and other athletic teams in the community,” adds Hall. “And we’ll soon be reroofing the clubhouse of the Horsham Soccer Association.”
Going forward, Russell is extending its in-house capabilities. “Our new production manager is elevating the fit and finish on our jobs, ensuring that customers are satisfied when we do final walkthroughs,” says Hall. “We’ve also brought in a specialist for siding windows — someone with both a construction and a design background. Having a designer on staff helps customers to best determine the look they want for their homes.”
One last thing sets this company apart. Many contractors obtain the bulk of their business through referrals — but Russell Roofing gets referrals from other contractors. According to Hall, “When other contractors don’t know how to approach a job, they bring us in. Sometimes, the other roofer is scratching his head, but he knows Russell can take care of it. We’re a referral-based company, and that’s the reason people hire us: we’re the expert in roofing and exteriors.”
