INDIANAPOLIS -- Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, a leading manufacturer and supplier of a comprehensive "Roots to Rooftops" product portfolio, announced today its recognition of 133 firms throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico with the 2016 Partner in Quality Award. The sought-after annual award honors elite Firestone Building Products Red Shield™ Licensed Roofing Contractors for their high-level craftsmanship and quality-focused skill set required to achieve superior roofing installations.
Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors are required to complete extensive product installation training. They must also meet Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) criteria. QIR measures each contractor's performance based on the number of warranty repair incidences per million square feet.
As a testament to their expertise, Partner in Quality winners' 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.
To qualify, winners must:
• Install a minimum of eight warranted roofs in 2014 and 2015, and four warranted roofs per year for each of the prior three years
• Maintain at least 1 million square feet of Firestone Building Products roofs under warranty
• Achieve an annual Firestone Building Products QIR of 1.0 or less
Winners are also able to participate in the Firestone Building Products Community Service Program, which makes them eligible for a $1,000 annual credit to donate labor and materials for roofing projects in their respective communities.
"At Firestone Building Products, we hold our valued partners to a high standard," said Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products. "The Partner in Quality Award is reserved for those who achieve the highest levels of roofing quality. We certainly recognize what it means to go above and beyond and look forward each year to honoring these talented, hardworking contractors with the praise they deserve."
