GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has just announced its 2013 “Text-For-A-Bike” sweepstakes, starting May 1 and running through July 31. Similar to GAF’s 2012 truck promotion, professional roofing contractors or builders/remodelers in the United States can enter to win a great ride — but this time, it’s one of five custom Orange County Choppers (OCC) motorcycles built exclusively for GAF!
It’s easy to enter by texting GAFBIKE to 41411 from your mobile phone or by visiting www.GAFTextForABike.com. A grand prize winner will be selected from each of GAF’s five sales areas. In addition to the bikes, GAF will be awarding 10 Visa gift cards for $500 each and 50 Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grills.
As in 2012, GAF is sponsoring events at select distributor locations across the country to support the promotion. Contractors who attend these events will be treated to a lunch from GAF and be eligible to win lots of local prizes, including gift cards, hats, and t-shirts. One lucky contractor at each location will leave the event with a flat-screen television, and two at each event will win a tablet computer! The events will also feature one of the five OCC Choppers, so contractors can get a closer look at the grand prize.
Participating distributors will reach out to invite local contractors and feature signage announcing the events. Contractors should also check the GAF Facebook page at www.facebook.com/gafroofing to find out when events are coming to their area.
Professional roofing contractors, builders, and remodelers can sign up for FREE at www.GAFpromoclub.com to keep up to date on exclusive GAF promotions, member rewards programs, contests, sweepstakes, business-building tips, industry news, and much more.
Founded in 1886, GAF has become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple for contractors, specifiers, and property owners alike. In 2011, GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles and, in 2012, it introduced the GAF Lifetime Roofing System.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF has developed Advanced Protection Shingle Technology, which provides superior durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of scarce natural resources. The company has also developed single-ply and asphaltic membranes with superior durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.
GAF also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 125,000 professionals. CARE’s mission is to help professional contractors and distributors build their businesses through sales and management education, and to provide product and installation training to contractors, distributors, architects, property owners, and related industry personnel.
