Try-Lock Roofing


Try-Lock Roofing, Inc., of Tonawanda, New York, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Try-Lock Roofing as one of the “elite of the elite” residential roofing contractors in the United States.

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer and only GAF Master Elite® Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must meet specific criteria in at least one out of three different pathways: the Performance pathway, where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection; the Reliability pathway, where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection; and the Service pathway, where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

Try-Lock Roofing has been a GAF Master Elite ® Contractor since 1999; the company received the President’s Club Award due to its excellent performance in 2016. To become a Master Elite ® Contractor—a status that less than 2% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve—a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing, maintain insurance (in states that require it), have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
