Tri-County Roofing & Siding Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2018 President’s Club Award


Ladson, SC – June 13, 2018: Tri-County Roofing & Siding

Tri-County Roofing & Siding of Ladson, South Carolina, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Tri-County Roofing & Siding 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.

Tri-County Roofing & Siding has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 1997. 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.

Some contractors, like Tri-County Roofing & Siding, know the ins and outs of the roofing industry and have the track record and the certifications to reflect it. “Tri-County is about staying power,” according to founder Dale Hawkins. “We partner with and educate our customers. We’re about local values and giving back to the community. We’re about honesty and professionalism. Our customers get more than our services; they get a sustained relationship with us, reflected in our follow-up and our ability to respond to future needs.”

As a multigenerational family business, Tri-County Roofing & Siding intrinsically understands construction issues that are unique to Charleston and the South Carolina coastal region. “We employ the knowledge, techniques, and education that enable our customers’ roofs and homes to weather the coastal storms,” explains Hawkins. “Storms with high winds and driving rains can rip through the Charleston and Savannah area in an instant. All types of roofs are vulnerable to damage from these storms. High winds can tear off shingles, bend metal, and send flying debris that can puncture roofing.”

Tri-County Roofing & Siding is skilled in the installation, maintenance, and repair of shingle, metal, and slate roofs, as well as commercial roofing systems. “Our experienced and trustworthy contractors are factory-certified for all roof systems,” says Hawkins. The company adds curb appeal and increases energy efficiency with siding and insulation services, as well as the installation of windows, skylights, and gutters. Tri-County Roofing & Siding operates a 24-hour emergency roof-repair program, with service vehicles that are fully equipped for any type of roof system and service experts to quickly stop leaks, prevent further damage, and assist with interior cleanup.

The company understands the value of community. “We and all of our employees live in the area,” states Hawkins. “Generosity strengthens a community, and a vital community is important to everyone.” Tri-County Roofing & Siding sponsors community events and organizations, such as Little League teams and high-school football games. It has worked with Habitat for Humanity and Debi’s Kids, partnered with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, and supported breast-cancer fundraisers. The company participates in GAF’s Roofs for Troops promotion and holds an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.

“We won’t try to sell a customer a new roof if it is not needed,” concludes Hawkins. “Customer satisfaction is our number one goal and our professional guarantee. As I have said to employees and customers, time and time again: As long as people have roofs over their heads, we will be there to put them on.”
