Murrells Inlet, SC – May 30, 2017 –
Contract Exteriors of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Contract Exteriors 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.
Contract Exteriors has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2014; 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.
As a replacement contractor, Contract Exteriors is not merely a roofing or siding company; rather, it is a full exterior replacement company that specializes in the entire envelope of a home. “While most companies can focus on only one exterior item, we have the staff and technology in place to assist customers with any exterior needs,” according to William McCourt, vice president of sales and marketing. “Contract Exteriors holds the highest designations within the remodeling industry; we’re a GAF Master Elite contractor, a Certainteed Select Shingle Master, a James Hardie Elite Preferred Installer, and an AZEK Platinum Contractor. And we’re the only company in the Carolinas to hold all of those certifications.”
“Our customer experience department is a key difference,” adds McCourt. “This is an amazing group of employees, dedicated to ensuring that customers’ needs and requests are met and hand-holding them throughout the entire remodeling process. We never cut corners on projects, and we truly treat each home with the same standards we would expect on our own properties.”
The company has a strong passion of providing service within the communities where its employees reside. “We partner with various food banks, veterans organizations, and the March of Dimes,” says McCourt, “and we sponsor local youth programs and schools.” The company is affiliated with the Chambers of Commerce of Conway, Georgetown County, Little River, Myrtle Beach Area, Wilmington, and Charleston Metro. It is a member of National Association of the Remodeling Industry, National Roofing Contractors Association, Certified Contractors Network, and the Home Builders Associations of Charleston, Horry Georgetown, and Wilmington-Cape Fear. The company is a Habitat for Humanity roofer, works with the South Carolina Safe Home program, and is part of AZEK’s Helping Hand program. It is an EPA-certified lead-safe firm, a recipient of GuildQuality’s 2017 Guildmaster Award, and accredited by the Better Business Bureau, holding an A+ rating.
Going forward, the company wishes to continue focused growth in the markets it services and to continue receiving industry awards for customer service and quality. “As we continue to expand throughout the Carolinas, we’re always looking at what markets would be a great fit for us and how we could best service the customers in those areas,” concludes McCourt. “Customers hire us due to our unwavering commitment to quality and customer experience. We’re transparent throughout the entire process, educating homeowners on the products we use and the services we’ll be performing. An educated customer is our best customer!”
