New GAF Vendor Relationships Benefit Contractors

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, continues to offer those contractors participating in its GAF Certified Contractor Program business-building benefits through vendor partnerships. So far in 2015, the company has added four additional relationships that contractors can take advantage of to help make running a business easier. 


Roofer’s Choice Insurance is a roofing-specific insurance agency based out of Texas that offers insurance coverage in all 50 states. Its mission is to provide coverage that will protect businesses in the event of a loss. Offerings include General Liability, Workers Compensation, a full range of employee benefits, a human resources department, a payroll service, and more. Have you had claims denied or are you worried about coverage issues pertaining to your current insurance program? Roofer’s Choice Insurance offers free evaluations of your current insurance portfolio. 


Enrolling in the Contractor's Financial Services accelerated payment program provides accelerated (usually within 24 hours) and predictable A/R cash flow, generates immediate working capital to bid more jobs without incurring debt, and makes the contractor's invoicing and accounts receivable management simpler, more professional, and less costly.  


JumpHawk builds a top-ranking lead-generation website in contractors’ key markets. The company’s HawkSite technology has been tested with GAF Master Elite® Contractors with incredible results – JumpHawk successfully demonstrated its ability to deliver top organic (free) rankings for hundreds of relevant search terms. So when homeowners are searching for roofing products and services on the Internet, companies using this technology will be at the top of the ranking results.


Admirals® Bank is a federally chartered financial institution operating in all 50 states. The bank has a history of uncovering niche markets and has pioneered lending in the residential solar market. In addition, its high-touch service model and technology-empowered processes have made it a nationwide leader in home improvement lending. GAF has partnered with Admirals® Bank to offer its contractors a broad and innovative program for both home improvement and residential renewable energy customers. 


“A critically important part of our CCP offering is our vendor-partner relationships. Helping our contractors create more leads, grow their sales, and build their business capabilities is another way we can assist them,” stated Jim Slauson, vice president of GAF’s Certification Program and Services. “We are pleased to be adding these new vendors to our “Tools 4 Success” vendor portfolio to further assist our CCP contractors.”
