FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Grandview, MO – December 12, 2018: Pyramid Roofing Company, Inc.
Pyramid Roofing Company, Inc., of Grandview, Missouri, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Pyramid 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 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 Select(TM) Contractor–a status that less than 1% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing (in states that require it), maintain insurance, 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.
In the Kansas City area, roofing contractors come and go; the average lifespan of a roofing company in this part of Missouri is three to five years. Pyramid Roofing is the exception to that. “We’ve been here, under the same ownership, for more than 20 years,” according to owner Doug Galant. “When customers realize that we’ve been in the community for that length of time, they know we’re here for the long haul, and it puts their minds at ease.”
Longevity joins with other factors to make Pyramid appealing to customers. “Often, we’re recommended to a homeowner by someone he or she trusts: an insurance agent, an adjustor, a friend, or a neighbor,” says Galant. “When you combine those good referrals with competitive pricing and strong warranties–well, it’s pretty hard to beat.”
“We’re not just two guys in a truck,” continues Galant. “We’ve got a large office building and warehouse, as well as a team of professionals, including roofing installers and former insurance claims representatives. Our staff brings a lot of knowledge to the table.”
Pyramid Roofing gives back, and the company plans to deepen its community involvement going forward. “It’s important to be more established in charitable contributions to the community,” explains Galant. “We want to increase that, with more donated time this year. Each employee is challenged to pick a charity or cause and work towards that, representing Pyramid while doing so. We’ve donated to local food drives; we’ve also assisted with materials and labor to a family where the husband was being deployed for military service.” A GAF Certified Green Roofer(TM), the company is a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.
According to Galant, an increased presence in the social-media world is an important goal. “We’ve realized how important this is. We revamped our website and upgraded our television advertising, and we still continue with traditional print ads and the Yellow Pages. We actively participate on Facebook and Twitter. It’s the way of the future, and we’re keeping up with it.”
Galant concludes by affirming Pyramid’s connection to GAF. “We love to support GAF and its products–those products are our branding,” he says. “And we’re honored to be a member of the President’s Club. We’re going to keep getting better and gaining steady growth. The best way to continue on the path we’re on is to get as close to 100% customer satisfaction as possible, this year and every year going forward.”
