SMA Exteriors & Restoration Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2018 President’s Club Award


Maple Grove, MN – December 24, 2018: SMA Exteriors & Restoration, Inc.

SMA Exteriors & Restoration, Inc., of Maple Grove, Minnesota, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes SMA Exteriors & Restoration 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 (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.
