Chantilly, VA – May 23, 2017 –
Northern Virginia Roofing of Chantilly, Virginia, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Northern Virginia 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 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.
Northern Virginia Roofing has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2006; 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 demonstrate proper licensing, maintain insurance (in states that require it), have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
With two divisions (residential and commercial) installing roofing, siding, gutters, windows, and doors, Northern Virginia Roofing is a company that does it all–including helping to replace the roof of the Pentagon after the 2001 terrorist attacks. “It’s not something a lot of people know about us,” according to John Francis, owner and chief executive officer. “It was done at no cost to the taxpayers. Northern Virginia Roofing and other contractors around the country rallied together to restore a national symbol.”
The company has installed more than 40,000 projects since opening for business in 1963. “We’ve been in business long enough to service three generations of a family,” explains chief operating officer of NV Roofing Commercial Services Paul Dow, “and 50% of our business is either repeat or referral. Many of our crew members have been with us for 11 years; we’ve received 31 national awards for training, installation, and consumer protection; and our owner and CEO is a familiar presence on television and radio. We’re a prominent company with a rich history.”
Communication is important at Northern Virginia Roofing. “When a homeowner starts a project with us, we assign a project manager to that customer, so he or she has a direct point of contact,” says Dow. “Nobody ever complains about a lack of communication with us–we over-communicate! Whether it’s an announcement that we’re coming to start the job or a notification that something has changed, the homeowner is always kept in the loop.”
In addition to its contracting services, the company has a separate division that conducts home energy audits. It has also participated in GAF’s Roofs for Troops promotion.
Going forward, Northern Virginia Roofing expects continued growth and success. “We would like to expand our reach,” concludes Dow. “We always want to grow and serve new customers. Our values are foremost in everything we do–as our owner, John Francis, says, ‘We haven’t lived up to our expectations until we’ve exceeded yours!’”
