New Britain, PA – June 10, 2017 –
Matrix Roofing Systems, Inc., of New Britain, Pennsylvania, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Matrix Roofing Systems as one of the “elite of the elite” commercial roofing contractors in the United States.
GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Select(TM) Contractors can compete for its commercial President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a commercial 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.
Matrix Roofing Systems has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2007; the company received the President’s Club Award due to its excellent performance in 2016. To become a Master Select(TM) Contractor–a status that less than 1% 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.
A small or unnoticeable roof leak can turn into an expensive and disastrous problem, but Matrix Roofing Systems has a solution. “Clients can enroll in our Preventative Maintenance Program,” according to president Jeff Hartsock. “It’s an important part of a customer’s asset management. Our program is designed to maximize roof life expectancy, lowering costs and increasing return on investment. It minimizes potential property damage, mitigates risk and liability, and limits disruptions to business operations.”
The company’s experienced inspectors leave no stone unturned while performing their in-depth surveys of customer roofs. Faulty conditions are documented and photographed, enabling Matrix to submit customized repair and maintenance recommendations. Areas of inspection include the field of the roof, flashings, penetrations, drainage areas, gutters and downspouts, masonry, insulation, and the roof deck.
Matrix also checks for roof problems that don’t originate within the roof itself. “Many leaks originally perceived as roof leaks are not the results of roof deficiencies,” explains Hartsock. “Water may enter through part of a building’s masonry, such as coping stones, joints, and cornices. Our inspectors can diagnose these problems. We can perform appropriate repairs to caulking, coping stones, and brick and stone pointing; we also do masonry waterproofing.”
“Our dedication to staying abreast of technical advancements within the industry allows us to continually strengthen our expertise and deliver exceptional service,” says Hartsock. Having extensive experience with commercial, industrial, institutional, and multifamily buildings, Matrix is certified by major materials manufacturers and is licensed, registered, insured, and OSHA-compliant. The company is a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association and holds an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.
With its ongoing commitment to providing value-engineered solutions and offering superior products, Matrix has developed a respected reputation. “Our team understands that roofing issues don’t happen only during business hours. We’ve seen it all,” concludes Hartsock. “We’ve got a track record for reliability and quality, and we work at a reasonable cost. That’s why we’re the top choice of hundreds of business in our area.”
