Savannah, GA – July 15, 2016 – Metalcrafts, a Tecta America Company LLC, of Savannah, Georgia, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF has to offer: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Metalcrafts 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.
Metalcrafts has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2003. 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.
Since its inception, Metalcrafts has built a reputation on quality. In 1992, the company decided to concentrate solely on the roofing segment of its business; by specializing, Metalcrafts was able to become a full-service roof contractor servicing every type of roofing system. The company is authorized to install products from GAF and numerous other major materials manufacturers.
Serving residential, commercial, and government customers, Metalcrafts installs and services roofing systems on single-family homes, condominiums, industrial plants, commercial buildings, churches, schools, facilities for local, state, and federal governments, and buildings on military bases. The company also works with and performs maintenance for paper mills, property managers, historic landmarks and properties, retail centers, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities.
In the steep-slope segment of the industry, the company installs: asphalt, metal, and synthetic slate shingles; architectural and industrial metal roofing systems; metal roofing retrofit roofing systems; clay, tile, and slate; copper and stainless steel; and standing- and flat-seam systems. For low-slope applications, Metalcrafts installs built-up, single-ply thermoplastic, EPDM, and modified bitumen roofing systems, as well as elastomeric coatings. Metalcrafts also specializes in ornamental metal details and is one of the few companies in its market that works with zinc.
Metalcrafts has received several professional certifications from GAF. The Asphaltic Certification indicates that the contractor specializes in installing asphaltic roofing systems, and the Single-Ply Certification indicates a specialization in installing single-ply roofing systems. With the Topcoat Certification, Metalcrafts is recognized for specializing in the installation of GAF’s TOPCOAT(R) products–liquid-applied roofing restoration systems formulated to stand up to the harshest of roof conditions and provide energy savings at a fraction of the cost of a new roof. The company is a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association, the Georgia Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association, and the Savannah Chamber of Commerce
The company’s strong working relationships with more than 30 major manufacturers allow it to offer solutions that best meet customers’ roofing needs and budgets.
