Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, recently presented Honolulu-based Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii, Inc. (CRW) with a 2011 Firestone Partner in Quality Award for its dedication to roofing system excellence. CRW was among 206 companies throughout North America to receive this industry acknowledgement. Tim Dunn, president of Firestone Building Products, said: “Firestone strives to provide high-quality products and superior warranty programs, but a vital factor in our success is our network of exceptional commercial roofing contractors. Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii, Inc. consistently upholds high industry standards, demonstrates outstanding workmanship and is a prime example of top quality commercial and industrial roofing installations that Firestone can stand behind.” The Firestone Partner in Quality Award is presented to contractors who installed a minimum of four warranted Firestone roofs in each of the past five years, maintained at least 1 million square feet of Firestone roofs under warranty and achieved an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 2.0 or less. The Firestone QIR measures each contractor’s quality performance based on warranty repair incidences per million square feet under warranty.
