Lemus Construction, Inc. has received the GAF President’s Club Award, the most prestigious contractor award offered by GAF. This highly-coveted award recognizes Lemus Construction 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® Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of installation excellence, consumer protection, and installer training.
Lemus Construction has been a GAF Master Elite® Contractor since 2008; the company received the President’s Club Award due to its excellent performance in 2016. To become a Master Elite® Contractor—a status that less than 2% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve—a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing, maintain insurance (in states that require it), have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
Only a handful of contractors nationwide qualify to earn the GAF Master Elite designation, but even fewer of those are companies that perform a full range of exterior services. Lemus Construction is one of those rare companies. “We specialize in outstanding exterior renovations,” says Victor Lemus, president. “We are roofing contractors, which is why we received the GAF award—but our services also include siding, windows, doors, insulation, gutters, skylights, decks, and stone service. We work in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and we’re fully licensed and insured.”
As a recognized leader in providing services for residential and commercial properties throughout the greater Philadelphia area, Lemus Construction has amassed a list of highly satisfied customers. “They say that they like our company because we offer the best combination of certified labor,” states Lemus. “We have the most advanced and cost-effective materials and the best warranties to protect our customers’ long-term investments.
“All employees undergo ongoing education and training for adherence to safety standards and to meet any new installation guidelines from manufacturers, which happens when new materials are introduced and technical specifications change.”
Lemus Construction is also heavily involved with charitable endeavors. “We donate $100 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every roofing or siding project that we do,” says Lemus. “We also work with Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, providing services at cost or sometimes even pro bono.” The company also works with Veterans of Foreign Wars and with local veterans.
“Our new challenges,” concludes Lemus, “are multicomponent projects and achieving steady growth in talent, improved installation methods, and new equipment with advanced training.”
