The local Cave Creek firm is one of only 189 Firestone Building Products Red Shield™ Licensed Roofing Contractors throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico that were honored for excellence in roofing system installation.

Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors are required to complete extensive product installation training. As a testament to their level of expertise, projects are backed by the Firestone Building Products Red Shield™ Warranty. Depending on the commercial roofing system, terms of the warranty can range from five years to 30 years.

Winners were required to meet the following parameters

  • Install four warranted Firestone Building Products roofs in each of the past five years.
  • Maintain at least 1 million square feet of Firestone Building Products roofs under warranty.
  • Achieve an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 1.5 or less (QIR measures each contractor’s performance based on warranty repair incidences per million square feet under warranty).

“The Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors are some of the top roofing professionals in the industry. This is evident when looking at the number of warranted jobs the firm has completed in the last calendar year, but more importantly, the superior level of craftsmanship demonstrated in each project.
