Collectively, the winners installed more than 240 million square feet of warranted Firestone roofing systems on new construction and reroof applications in 2012. “While Firestone has a long history manufacturing top-quality roofing products, we rely on our trusted network of licensed roofing contractors to showcase their performance. We congratulate these winning Master Contractor firms for demonstrating quality workmanship and dedication to installation excellence,” said Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products. “This select group has truly raised the quality benchmark for commercial roof installations and service.” Established in 1988, the Master Contractor program annually presents three distinct industry awards: Master Contractor AwardThe Master Contractor Award recognizes top Firestone licensed contractors for the total square footage of quality roofing systems installed and Quality Points accumulated for receiving outstanding inspection ratings on Firestone Red Shield® warranted RubberGard™ EPDM, UltraPly™ TPO, UNA-CLAD™ metal and asphalt-based roofing system installations.
