Florida Southern Roofing Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2018 President’s Club Award


Sarasota, FL – September 22, 2018: Florida Southern Roofing

Florida Southern Roofing of Sarasota, Florida, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Florida Southern Roofing as one of the “elite of the elite” residential roofing contractors in the United States.

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Elite(R) Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must meet specific criteria in at least one out of three different pathways:

• Performance pathway – where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection
• Reliability pathway – where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection
• Service pathway – where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

To become a Master Elite(R) Contractor–a status that less than 2% 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.

“We value our certified contractors for raising the industry standard year after year by installing the best roofing products and systems. Our President’s Club award recognizes only those contractors who have distinguished themselves by the highest standards of excellence, customer satisfaction, and dependability,” says Jim Slauson, GAF’s VP of Certified Program & Services.

A full-service roofing contractor, family-owned and family-operated Florida Southern Roofing has been extending its values–honesty, security, and integrity–to customers since 1992. According to president and CEO Brian Wallace, “My family has been in Sarasota County for five generations. We’re proud of the work we do and the reputation we’ve built here.”

The company takes pride in being a residential and commercial specialist in metal, tile, and shingle roofing systems. Most of the company’s local competitors do not repair roofs, but Florida Southern Roofing is happy to assist with all roof repair projects. The company accepts all major forms of payment and offers financing, and it works on customers’ behalf with their insurance providers. The company has begun offering a complete office/building renovation service, including a showroom where customers can meet with roofing specialists and see the products used.

In 2016, Florida Southern Roofing launched its “Roofs For Heroes” program, which set out to donate one roof to one local hero. “After seeing the extent of our hero’s need,” says Wallace, “we reached out to our business partners, who were all too happy to contribute. It snowballed into a truly life-changing event for our first hero.” The company also donates to and volunteers at the Sarasota/Manatee Branch of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. Florida Southern Roofing is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.

Customers continue to hire Florida Southern Roofing because of the quality of its work. “We provide superior customer service, and our employees truly care about the customers we serve,” says Wallace. “However, none of that would matter without top-notch workmanship.” He concludes: “Our longevity is a big part of our success. Florida Southern Roofing has been a part of this community for a very long time, and we plan on being here for a long time to come. Our customers know they can trust us to stand behind our work.”
