Raleigh, NC – August 15, 2017: Baker Roofing Company
Baker Roofing Company of Raleigh, North Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Baker Roofing Company 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 demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Consumer Protection, and Installer Training.
Baker Roofing Company has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2001; 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.
In business for 100 years, Baker Roofing Company is now the third largest roofing contractor in the United States. Holding tightly to its century-old promise of “Always good work,” the company has been installing, repairing, and replacing commercial roofs since its inception. Baker Roofing understands the complexities of the commercial roofing process and ensures minimal or no impact to its customers’ daily operations.
The company’s residential division also has been doing business for nearly a century. Baker Roofing works on all types of residential roofing systems, as well as installing and replacing siding, windows, gutters, and doors.
As the company has grown, it has kept up with changes in the industry. Baker Roofing is committed to sustainability in both its service offerings and its operational and business practices. In recent years, the company has launched a renewable energy division that installs and services photovoltaic, solar thermal, and wind-power systems. It also offers vegetative roofing solutions for residential, commercial, and government facilities. Baker Roofing has employees qualified in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), a green-building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. The company utilizes renewable-energy and daylighting systems on some of its warehouse facilities and recycles old shingles and discarded roof insulation.
With its long history in its home market area, Baker Roofing cherishes its community relations and continually looks for new ways to give back. It has worked with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County for several years. The company also supports and participates in the fundraising endeavors of organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, the Salvation Army, and Jobs for Life. Baker Roofing is a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association, is certified by multiple materials manufacturers, and is a multi-year recipient of the Angie’s List Super Service Award.
In 1915, founder W.P. Baker hung a sign in what was then known as Baker Rawls Tin Shop; the sign read: “We shall do good work. At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always good work.” Today, the current management still displays that sign in the Raleigh headquarters as a daily reminder of the values that continue to drive Baker Roofing to ongoing success.
