Brentwood, MD – June 4, 2018: Harry & Sons
Harry & Sons of Brentwood, Maryland, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Harry & Sons as one of the “elite of the elite” commercial roofing contractors in the United States.
GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Select(TM) Contractors can compete for its commercial President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a commercial 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.
Harry & Sons has been a GAF Master Select(TM) Contractor since 2011. To become a Master Select(TM) Contractor–a status that less than 1% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing, maintain insurance (in states that require it), 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.
People trust their friends and families, so they also trust Harry & Sons, according to owner Harry Kalashian. “We track 100% of our jobs to find out where the lead came from. Much of our business is from personal referrals or past clientele. New customers feel that we’re an extension of the referring people, so they trust our company to work on their properties.”
A family-owned-and-operated business, Harry & Sons is a commercial and residential roofing contractor that has been serving the greater Washington, DC, area for more than 34 years. “I’ve been in the business for more than 39 years,” states Kalashian. “Two of my four boys work here as well. Our vice president has been here for 16 years, and his son is our head estimator. We’re very family-oriented.”
The company has a well-earned reputation for quality and the positive feedback to back it up. “Our ratings and reviews are consistent across the board,” says Kalashian. “In the last several years, we’ve qualified multiple times to be in the Best Pick Reports catalog, which features only four roofers. We also have an extremely high rating in Consumers’ CHECKBOOK magazine. The more customers we work with, the more they add new, positive ratings for us.” Kalashian adds: “The customers get even more reassurance from the fact that we have a supervisor on every single job. Someone is always there to answer whatever questions they might have.”
Harry & Sons works with the community, as well. “We donated windows to Omni House, a senior living center,” says Kalashian. “We installed all the windows for them.”
Moving forward, the company looks to expand. “We’d like to get bigger offices and a few more service vehicles,” concludes Kalashian. “That would enable us to service our customers better and continue with the high standards that we offer them now. The service is important; when economic times are bad, people neglect their homes–doing only small, minor repairs to roofs instead of the replacements that they really needed. As times get better, we’re here, ready to give their roofs the attention they need. New clients looking for roofing services should just check our ratings–our customers speak for us.”
