GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, is proud to have received its tenth distinguished Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes, the country’s largest privately held builder. GAF received the coveted “AA” score, achieving top scores in quality and service, and is one of only 15 suppliers out of the 200 evaluated to be recognized with this honor. Winners compete against every sector of the building materials industry.
Each year, David Weekley Homes challenges its entire Supply Chain to provide the highest level of quality products and superior service through a unique evaluation that quantifies its National Trading Partners’ efforts in achieving excellence. Companies that provide an optimum combination of quality and service according to the results of this evaluation process are recognized with a Partners of Choice Award.
“It is truly an honor to again receive this distinguished award from a company that measures world-class performance,” stated Paul Bromfield, senior vice president of marketing and business development at GAF. “At GAF it remains our focus to produce the highest-quality products and to offer the best service to our customers, making recognition in these areas particularly gratifying.”
“The pursuit of world-class excellence is a journey and not simply a point in time. It starts with commitment from a supplier’s leadership, and continues through the successful management of the distribution channel,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes and chief architect of the home builders’ evaluation platform. “By winning our award for the eighth time in 10 years, GAF has proven they are a world-class provider in delivering quality products to David Weekley Homes.”

Founded in 1886, GAF is 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. GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles, which then evolved with the introduction of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System by extending the Lifetime coverage beyond just the roofing shingles.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, providing superior durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of natural resources. The company also developed single-ply and asphaltic roofing 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.
