Tacoma, WA – May 16, 2017 –

Achten’s Quality Roofing of Tacoma, Washington, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Achten’s Quality 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 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.

Achten’s Quality Roofing has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2010; 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 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.

All of the company’s installers are professional roofers who are field-book-tested. Achten’s Quality Roofing does not use subcontractors; every technician is an employee, arriving at the job site in an Achten’s truck, wearing an Achten’s uniform, and with all the equipment needed to complete the project. After project completion, the company sends a quality-control professional to do a 25-point inspection, ensuring that the work meets or exceeds the customer’s expectations and is in accord with local building codes.

Founder John Achten believes strongly in giving back, so the company is quite active in the community, sponsoring local charities and scholastic organizations and helping local families in need.
