Springfield, IL – May 26, 2017 –
Sutton Siding & Remodeling, Inc., of Springfield, Illinois, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Sutton Siding & Remodeling 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.
Sutton Siding & Remodeling has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2004; 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.
According to Trip Sutton, marketing manager at Sutton Siding & Remodeling, the company’s status as a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor is a valuable selling point. “We are currently the only Master Elite contractor in Springfield, and that’s been true since we began to earn the award. People choose us because of the value of that.”
Quality of work is also a factor in Sutton Siding’s success. “Quality comes from time and training,” says Sutton. “We’ve been in business for 70 years–the fourth generation of a family-owned business. We’re pretty proud of that. Another thing that is not very common in our area is that our roofers actually work for our company; they’re not subcontractors. People can rely on the fact that we’re properly training our people; customers don’t have to worry about subcontractors who might try to cancel insurance or cut corners or anything like that.”
Sutton Siding has a commitment to the environment. “Our roofing division is trying to work with some of the waste companies in town to see what we can do about getting shingles recycled,” explains Sutton. “We are a GAF-certified green roofer. There is currently no place in Springfield to take tough-to-recycle shingles; the closest place is about an hour’s drive from here, which makes the cost unreasonably high for consumers who choose that option. If we can get companies to bring that recycling opportunity into Springfield, I think it will help the whole community to improve.”
Giving back to the community is also important to Sutton Siding. The company donates cabinets and accessories from home remodeling projects to Habitat for Humanity. It also works with Kenzie’s Christmas Wish in memory of Mackenzie Moreland, a local-area teenager who passed away from myocarditis in 2011. The program provides Christmas gifts and clothing to underprivileged children in the area.
Going forward, Sutton Siding plans to continue with the same level of value and service. “We’re continuing to offer the great warranties and trying to become more green with the waste-management companies. We’ve also taken on a new product line, Living Space Sunrooms. It’s a high-quality product. We’ve never worked with a sunroom company before, so we’re very excited about this new venture.”
