Firestone Building Products Unveils 2015 Master Contractors
Firestone Building Products Co.
LLC announced 256 firms in the United States, Canada and
Mexico that achieved the 2015 Master Contractor Award. These top
contractors have proven their excellence in installation, quality
of work and customer service. Collectively, they installed more
than 300 million square feet of warranted Firestone Building
Products roofing systems in 2014.
The Master Contractor Program presents three distinct
industry honors annually: the Master Contractor Award, Inner Circle
of Quality Award and President's Club Award. The Platinum Council
Award is bestowed biyearly.
Master Contractor Award
Master Contractor Award recipients are selected based
on the total square footage installed and quality points
accumulated for outstanding inspection ratings on systems covered
by the Firestone Building Products Red Shield Warranty. Those
include: RubberGard EPDM, UltraPly TPO, asphalt and metal roofing
Master Contractors are also eligible to earn points
in the sustainability category. The program recognizes Firestone
Building Products' SkyScape Vegetative Roof System, PLATINUM PV
Program and SunWave Daylighting System.
To meet the award requirements, contractors must
complete a minimum of eight Red Shield warranted jobs in 2014 and
earn a Preferred Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) that did not exceed
three times the average QIR for Red Shield Licensed Roofing
Contractors. QIR is determined by the annual number of quality
incidents per million square feet of roofing under warranty.
Inner Circle of Quality Award
Master Contractors are eligible for the Inner Circle
of Quality Award by installing a minimum of eight warranted
Firestone Building Products roofing systems in 2014 and four roofs
per year for each of the prior four years; maintaining at least 2

warranty; and achieving an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of
1.25 or less.

Contractors earning this prestigious designation have accrued the
highest number of quality points for superior inspection ratings
and total square footage of Firestone Building Products Red Shield
warranted roofing system installations during the past year.
Platinum Council Award

contractors significantly exceeding the minimum points needed to
qualify for the Master Contractor Award and consistently
demonstrating outstanding performance over a two-year period,
placing them among the top 32 contractors for that time.
