Roscoe, Ill.-based Martin Exteriors announced it received two What Rocks Awards, sponsored by the Rockford Register Star, in the categories of Best Roofing Contractor and Best Siding Contractor. This is the second year in a row the company has been named Best Roofing Contractor in northern Illinois.

Now in its 23rd year, the What Rocks competition takes place annually to celebrate the best businesses and services in the Rock Valley region, as nominated by and voted on by Rockford Register Star readers. There were more than 150 categories in arts and entertainment, food and drinks, goods and services, health, recreation and fitness, and more. From the more than 20,000 businesses in Rockford-area, the top three nominees were selected in each category.

“We’ve worked so hard to get to where we are right now and we are extremely thrilled to be named Best Siding Contractor and Best Roofing Contractor in northern Illinois,” said Martin Exteriors President Justin Martin. “We appreciate the community’s support, and we are honored that our residents know we do good work and that we are extremely trustworthy. Winning What Rocks validates the hard work and quality job we put in for our customers, day in and day out.”

A virtual award ceremony was held on Nov. 17 to recognize the winners. Martin Exteriors is a family-owned and operated business formed in 2006 to ensure local residents receive high-quality roofing and siding at a reasonable price. In addition to What Rocks, the company was recently named on the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies in America, reporting 662% revenue growth and ranking at 745.
