Graves Bros. Home Improvement of Rochester, NY, has received GAF’s 2017 President’s Club Award. A GAF Master Elite(R) contractor since 2013, has provided roofing, remodeling, and solar services to the greater Rochester area since 1977.

Rochester, NY – May 23, 2017 –

Graves Bros. Home Improvement Co. of Rochester, New York, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Graves Bros. Home Improvement 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.

Graves Bros. Home Improvement has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2013; 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.

Combining quality, service, and support, Graves Bros. Home Improvement is nationally recognized in the industry. “We can handle multi-phase jobs, whereas many of our competitors perform only limited or single services,” says president Charles Graves.

Proud to offer services in roofing, siding, windows, doors, insulation, remodeling, and solar, Graves Bros. is one of the largest and oldest home-improvement contractors in its market. “We have a very low turnover in our office, sales, and production staff,” states Graves. “Our sales force offers a thorough and comprehensive home presentation and analysis for a client’s roofing, siding, and window projects, using the new Hover and Eagleview software products on their tablet and laptop computers. Whatever clients’ home-improvement dreams are, our consultants help design a solution that meets their needs, both aesthetically and functionally. And we give a free written estimate that describes each project in detail.”

“We support our local neighborhood association and are actively involved with our local Upstate Building Industry Alliance,” adds Graves. A Rochester “Top 100” company, Graves Bros. is one of Qualified Remodeler magazine’s top 500 companies in the nation and an EPA-certified lead-safe firm. The company holds an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Going forward, Graves Bros. aims to maintain its leading role in the local home-improvement market and increase its market share in the solar panel field. “We’re a one-stop shop,” concludes Graves, “and take care of all facets of the project, from roofing to remodeling–so clients don’t have to juggle multiple contractors. Our clients feel we offer them the best value, which is a combination of price, quality, and the assurance that, if there is a problem, we’ll resolve it in a timely manner. For nearly four decades, Graves Bros. has had a reputation for quality and integrity, so customers can be sure we’ll be here to stand behind our work.”
