GAF Announces Its Roving Truck Promotion – Coming to a Town Near You!

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has just announced its 2012 “Text-For-A-Truck” sweepstakes, starting June 15th and running through August 31st. Similar to GAF’s 2011 truck promotion, professional roofing contractors or builders/remodelers in the United States can enter to win a Ford® F-150 truck — but this time, the company is giving away five trucks and each is filled with a GAF Lifetime Roofing System. 

Those eligible can enter simply by texting GAFTRUCK to 41411 from their mobile phone, visiting http://gaftextforatruck.com, by scanning a code that can be found on the promotional flyer, or by visiting http://m.gaftextforatruck.com from their mobile browser.  A grand prize winner will be selected from each of GAF’s five sales areas, so each part of the U.S. will have a winner.  In addition to the trucks, GAF will be awarding 10 Visa® gift cards for $500 each and 25 worksite radios. 

GAF is taking the contest even further this year by sponsoring events at 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. The events will also feature a Ford® F-150 truck  so contractors can get a closer look at the prize. 

Participating distributors will reach out to invite local contractors and will 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.
