Giving Back to the Community with GAF

We Love Our Community

We at Chase Construction NW, Inc. love our community, and we are always looking for ways to give back and help those in need. Our Master Elite Status gives us opportunities that we wouldn’t have as a typical roofing contractor. Not only can we provide better service to our customers, as we are held to higher standards and training, and provide superior warranties, but we can also better serve our community! Below are a couple of programs that are available to Master Elite Contractors through GAF that help us do just that.

Habitat For Humanity

GAF Territory Managers Donovan Gladstone and Tom Stancik along with 4 GAF Factory Certified Master Elite Contractors recently attended the 30 Year Anniversary Habitat For Humanity Benefit Luncheon. And we were privileged to be one of those invited. GAF partners with it’s Master Elite Contractors providing a certification called a “GAF Certified Community Contractor with Habitat For Humanity” where the contractors with this credential commit to providing free labor roofing at least 2 roofs per year and up to 4 roofs per year, and GAF provides all of the materials for the entire roof packages along with an enhanced roof warranty for free!

Hire A Hero Roofing Academy

GAF has partnered with National Institute of Training & Education (NITE) and US Military Pipeline (USMP) to build a roofing installation training program to help veterans transition to the roofing industry. They are launching this new program nationally called “Hire A Hero – Roofing Academy”. There is a labor shortage, and GAF, being an all American made product, is here to support our military as well. GAF created the “Hire A Hero – Roofing Academy” and have partnered with JBLM locally to put on 3 (3 week) roofing academy schools to train exiting military, training them to go into the roofing industry. We as GAF Master Elites, will have the first opportunity to hire these graduates of the course. This first class is running Apr. 18th through this Friday May 6th and then again in July and again in Oct. As the roofing Veterans Communityacademy was presented at the Habitat for Humanity anniversary luncheon, Donovan Gladstone mentioned “When I saw the slide, I realized maybe we can have the roofs we roof the 3rd week of every class be a Habitat For Humanity roof for a veteran.” What a great idea! 

 

Chase Construction NW, Inc. gets involved.

Hire A Hero Roofing AcadamyWe know that when you hire a veteran, everybody wins! The training that the veterans receive is making learning a solid trade, and entering an industry where they can learn sales, estimating, installation, project management, etc. easy for men and women exiting the military. For us its a no brainer, we know that we are hiring quality people, trained with the values of teamwork, work ethic, and reliability. Recently we had the opportunity to meet the participants of the very first training course! They heard from us and a few other GAF Master Elite Roofing contractors, and we were able to meet with each candidate individually as well. We are excited for this new program to really take off!
