Staff report

Professional Roofing Services Inc. of Mount Airy was recently honored with two awards recognizing its work.

Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, a manufacturer and supplier of building products, presented the 2017 Silver Master Contractor award and the Inner Circle of Quality award, both of which are “distinguished honors in the commercial roofing industry,” according to Firestone.

“The local Mount Airy firm is in the top 5 percent of Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors to earn the distinction,” Firestone said in announcing the recognition.

The annual Master Contractor Program honors top Firestone Building Products contractors “for excellence in roofing system installation, quality of work and customer service. This year is special for the Master Contractor program, as it marks the 30th anniversary of Firestone Building Products recognizing licensed roofing firms throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico,” the firm continued in a written statement.

“For 30 years, our contractors continue to prove they’re among the best in the industry. The Master Contractor award reflects their hard work and attention to detail,” said Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products. “This esteemed Master Contractor distinction is among the longest running and most desirable recognition in the commercial roofing industry, and we’re honored to be partnered with these reputable firms.”

Silver Master Contractor award winners are judged on the basis of total square footage installed and quality points accumulated for inspection ratings on installations covered by the Red Shield Warranty.

Contractors had to complete a minimum of eight Red Shield warranted jobs in the 2016 calendar year, be in good financial standing with Firestone Building Products, and have a Preferred Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) that did not exceed 2.5 times the average QIR for Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors. QIR is determined by the annual number of quality incidents per million square feet of roofing under warranty.

“Furthermore, the Inner Circle of Quality award recognizes an elite group of Master Contractors who maintain at least 2 million square feet of Firestone Building Products roofs under warranty with an annual QIR of 1.0 or less,” the company said.

Professional Roofing Services Inc. is a family-owned and operated commercial roofing contractor located in Mount Airy. “They are a service oriented company with experience in all types of commercial roofing systems. Their roofing experts are highly skilled and have all undergone rigorous training,” Firestone said.
