Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 04, 2015 – Best Roofing of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Best Roofing as one of the “elite of the elite” among 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, Property Owner Protection, and Installer Training.
Best Roofing has been a GAF Master Select(TM) commercial roofing contractor since 2005. To become a Master Select(TM) contractor–a status that less than 1% of roofing contractors nationwide have achieved–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
When your business name includes the word “best,” your record and performance need to correspond. To Gregg Wallick, president and CEO of Best Roofing, it’s a fitting description for the company. “We live by that. We track every project that we do–and 75% of our business comes from existing clients or referrals. We’ve been in business since 1978 in the South Florida market, so our reputation speaks for itself.”
The attitudes and professionalism of the people at Best Roofing are key factors in the company’s success. “We’ve got a really great culture of people who have been here for a long time,” explains Wallick. “Culture is what takes over when I leave the place–those invisible values and attitudes and behaviors that just happen when the boss is not around.”
Best Roofing’s affiliation with GAF is a source of pride for Wallick. “When you’re recognized by a company like GAF–especially when that’s seen by potential new clients–it lends to our statement of credibility and trust. The President’s Club Award is a beautiful thing for us to have. Additionally, we have a really great relationship with the local GAF representatives, and their efforts make a big difference in what we do. It’s a terrific partnership.”
Wallick is bullish on growth in the company’s South Florida market. “We feel like we’re really well-positioned,” he says. “Our clients are growing. So the tide is rising with everybody, with the affiliates, with the type of clients that we work with–mostly commercial clients and property management groups. The economy in South Florida has been strong. We’re forecasting to grow 20-some percent this year. We’re on track after the first quarter.” Part of the growth that Wallick forecasts will be in Dade County, where the company is setting up a satellite office to serve the Miami area.
Giving back to the community is part of Best Roofing’s set of values. “I’ve got just a wonderful group of people that concentrate on helping non-profits with whatever helps that we can do,” states Wallick. “We do a lot of pro bono roofing work for them, helping them with roof leaks and roof replacements on different kinds of facilities. Every quarter, we set aside a certain percentage of the company profits into what we call Best Cares, a formalized process in which somebody in the company or some non-profit makes a request. We vet the requests and decide who we’re going to provide funding or work for. As of right now, I think we’ve made 11 or 12 contributions and pro bono work to different charities. We have a great process.”
“We’re very trusted in the community,” concludes Wallick. “And that’s crucial. There’s nothing like a reputation, and there’s nothing like a relationship.”
