Commercial roofing specialist Bade Roofing is proud to announce that it has received a 2016 Firestone Inner Circle of Quality Award.

The Firestone Inner Circle of Quality Award is one of the most prestigious honors in the commercial roofing industry awarded through Firestone Building Products, a leading manufacturer and supplier of a comprehensive “Roots to Rooftops” product portfolio.
Firestone Building Product's Master Contractor Program presents three distinct industry honors annually: The Master Contractor Award, Inner Circle of Quality Award and President’s Club Award. The program’s 2016 winners collectively installed more than 309 million square feet of warranted Firestone Building Products roofing systems on new and reroof projects during 2015. Award recipients are selected based on exemplary installation, quality of work and customer service. Bade Roofing has received multiple awards from Firestone Building Products, including The Master Contractor Award in 2015.

“Our annual Firestone Building Products Master Contractor Program recognizes top-tier firms for their commitment to excellence and superior workmanship,” said Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products. “Ultimately, the winners’ attention to detail during all installation phases helps ensure long-term roofing system performance. Master Contractor, Inner Circle of Quality and President’s Club award winners represent our best partners in the industry. We are proud of all they have accomplished and look forward to continuing to see them achieve.”

In order to qualify for the Inner Circle of Quality award, contractors must have:
•    Achieved an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 1.0 or less.
•    Installed a minimum of eight warranted Firestone Building Products roofing systems each in 2014 and 2015.
•    Installed four roofs per year for each of the prior three years.

"We couldn't be more proud about receiving an honor from Firestone for a second year in a row," said David Bade, owner of Bade Roofing. "We consider Firestone Building Products to be one of the leading sources for quality roofing products. We trust them to stand behind their roofing systems."

In 2015, Bade Roofing crews installed a 115-mil, fleece-back TPO roof system base manufactured by Firestone Building Products followed by a new green roof at 700 Market in Downtown St. Louis, MO. The outdoor space incorporates landscaping, grass, seating areas, lighting, a gas fire pit and planter boxes.
