Firestone Building Products Company LLC, a leading manufacturer and supplier of a comprehensive “Roots to Rooftops” product portfolio, recognized 133 firms across the United States, Canada and Mexico with the 2015 Partner in Quality Award. The annual award honors an elite group of Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors for a high level of craftsmanship and the skill set required for superior roofing installations.

Firestone Building Products Red Shield Licensed Roofing Contractors are required to complete extensive product installation training. As a testament to their 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. To qualify, winners had to:

  • Install a minimum of eight warranted roofs in 2014, and four warranted roofs per year for each of the prior four years
  • Maintain at least 1 million square feet of Firestone Building Products roofs under warranty
  • Achieve an annual Firestone Building Products Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 1.25 or less (QIR measures each contractor's performance based on warranty repair incidences per million square feet under warranty).

As part of the program, winners are 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 recognize what it means to go above and beyond, and we hold our contractors to a high standard,” said Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products. “The Partner in Quality Award gives these talented and hard-working contractors the praise they truly deserve.”
