Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 1, 2017 – Advanced Roofing of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Advanced Roofing 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.
Advanced Roofing has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2002; 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.
Although it is the largest commercial roofing contractor and solar installer in Florida and among the top contractors in the country, Advanced Roofing still maintains the small touches that are hallmarks of old-fashioned customer service. “One of our cardinal rules is to stay in communication with our customers,” states vice president Danny Stokes. “When a customer calls, our standard procedure is to return that call the same day and within four hours. We get back to the client right away.”
The company regularly pulls off seemingly impossible feats, such as replacing roofs without disturbing the people inside. “We achieve this in different ways; sometimes, we’ll work at night or during off hours–that’s our magic, our ‘secret sauce,’” continues Stokes. “Ninety-five percent of our work is re-roofing occupied buildings–whether they’re office buildings, high-rise condominiums, governmental buildings, or colleges and schools. In the past, we worked on a city hall and a federal courthouse–and those judges and public officials don’t like to be disturbed while they’re working! We did the same thing with the Fort Lauderdale Federal Courthouse.”
Advanced Roofing holds the distinction of being a sole-source provider. Stokes explains: “There’s a lot of different stuff on a roof–air conditioning, electrical work, and so on. We are state-licensed to work on all of that, and we do all of the work in-house. Our air conditioning division, in operation for more than 20 years, also does lightning protection and has a general contractor’s license to handle structural repairs. We are truly a ‘soup-to-nuts’ company.”
After its previous acquisition of Roth Brothers of Tampa and with offices in Miami, Palm Beach, Jacksonville, and Orlando complementing the main office in Fort Lauderdale, Advanced Roofing’s service area covers nearly the entire state of Florida. “Ninety percent of our revenue comes from South Florida,” adds Stokes, “but more is beginning to come from other areas, thanks to our branch locations.”
As a full-service company doing repairs, preventative maintenance, restorations, and re-roofs across a wide-ranging geographic footprint, Advanced Roofing is poised for future growth and recognition. “In the last several years, we’ve won or placed for awards from the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Association and the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association,” concludes Stokes. “This year, we’re looking for continued growth. With our mottos of ‘Do what you say you’re going to do’ and ‘Do it right the first time,’ success and growth are a whole lot easier!”
