La-Rich Receives GAF's Prestigious 2018 President's Club Award

Plainville, CT – June 5, 2018: La-Rich LLC

La-Rich LLC of Plainville, Connecticut, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes La-Rich 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.

La-Rich has been a GAF Master Elite(R) Contractor since 2007. 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.

A prospective roofing customer should have full trust and confidence in his or her selected contractor. In central Connecticut, the contractor to trust is La-Rich. “Your roof protects your house, so you should expect perfection,” according to manager Scott Deprey. “When it comes to your home, you cannot afford to take a chance. You’re going to be spending several thousand dollars on the project, so you choose a contractor who is proven and capable. We’ve done more than 5,000 roofs over the last three decades, delivering high quality at fair and reasonable pricing. It’s the best of both worlds.”

A superior installation or repair begins with quality products. “We use GAF roofing products,” explains Deprey. “Why? Quite simply, they are the best.” He continues: “A quality roof requires a lot of effort and attention to detail. We use synthetic underlayment, beneath the shingle roofing–it has exceptional dimensional stability, better than felt. We install an ice and water shield, which forms a waterproof barrier where ice most often builds up. Chimneys are common locations for leaks to form, so we ensure that the chimneys are correctly flashed with lead, using the techniques endorsed by the National Roofing Contractors Association and our suppliers. We also flash around vents and drain stacks. Finally, we use an eight-inch drip edge to prevent water from running under the edges of the shingles.”

More than just a roofer, La-Rich also installs and services siding, decks, and replacement windows. “We use only the best in vinyl siding,” says Deprey, “as well as quality window and door products to provide beautiful accents and to lower energy bills. We’re equally proud of our reputation for high-quality deck construction and design.” The company is also well experienced in insurance restoration work and commercial contracting needs, with a large crew that specializes in roof repairs and upgrades for apartments and condominiums. La-Rich holds an A accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.

Because remodeling is a major undertaking, La-Rich works closely with customers to help them meet their dreams. “Whether customers are considering additions, kitchens, bathrooms, basements, or other home improvements, we’ll comfortably guide them through the process,” concludes Deprey. “Our experience and expertise provide the customer with a stress-free job. We offer a great job at a reasonable price–expect it!”
