Even the best designed commercial roofing system needs to be installed with expert skill to ensure long-lasting performance. To that end, Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, recognized 256 of its more than 3,000 licensed roofing contractors throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico as 2012 Master Contractors.
Throughout the past year, these esteemed installers upheld Firestone’s high standards for quality roofing system installation and outstanding service to earn this coveted industry distinction. Collectively, the 2012 winners have installed over 220 million square feet of warranted Firestone roofing systems on new construction and reroof applications in the last year.
Established in 1988, the Firestone Master Contractor program annually presents three distinct industry awards to a distinguished group of contractors based on a variety of criteria for quality workmanship and installation excellence:
Master Contractor Award
The Master Contractor Award recognizes first-rate Firestone-licensed contractors for the total square footage of quality roofing systems installed and Quality Points accumulated for receiving outstanding inspection ratings on Firestone Red Shield warranted RubberGard EPDM, UltraPly TPO, UNA-CLAD metal and asphalt-based roofing system installations.
Inner Circle of Quality Award
Installers are eligible for the Inner Circle of Quality award by achieving 2012 Master Contractor status, installing a minimum of four warranted Firestone roofs in each of the last five years, maintaining at least 2 million square feet of Firestone roofs under warranty and achieving an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 2.0 or less. The Firestone QIR measures each contractor’s quality performance based on warranty repair incidences per million square feet under warranty.
President’s Club Award
The President’s Club Award distinguishes Master Contractors that have accrued the highest number of Quality Points for superior inspection ratings and total square footage of Firestone Red Shield warranted roofing system installations completed over the past year.
Firestone bestowed the prized Inner Circle of Quality Award to 170 firms and the prestigious President’s Club Award to 31 firms during an awards ceremony held in Waikoloa, Hawaii earlier this year. BD+C
