In our last blog post we announced that we’d recently received an award from GAF, elevating George J Keller & Sons into the 2-star section of the GAF President’s Club. This prestigious award is only awarded to roofing contractors who are already members of the GAF Master Elite® contractor program. We get many questions about the Master Elite® program so this blog post will address some of those questions.GAF masterelite logo
