We are proud to announce that our Bade Roofing Team was honored with three prestigious industry awards - the Firestone Inner Circle of Quality Award, the Versico Excalibur Reward, and the Versico Gold Medal Quality Award.


The Firestone Inner Circle of Quality Award is one of the most prestigious honors in the commercial roofing industry awarded through Firestone Building Products. Contractors receiving the award are recognized at Firestone's annual Master Contractor Event. Additionally, award winners are eligible to participate in Firestone's Community Service Program and Inner Circle Insurance Program.

In order to qualify for the award, master contractors must:

  • Install a minimum of four, eight (8) warranted roofs in a year and four warranted roofs per year for each of the four prior years
  • Maintain at least two million square feet of roof under warranty
  • Achieve an annual Quality Incidence Rating (QIR) of 1.25 or less
  • Achieve Master Contractor Status


Bade Roofing was also honored with two awards from Versico Roofing Systems (manufacturers of single-ply roofing systems) - an Excalibur Reward and a Gold Medal Quality Award. With the Excalibur rewards program, points are awarded to Versico-authorized contractors for each square foot of both warranted and non-warranted roofing materials that they purchase and install according to Versico's high quality standards.


Versico's Gold Medal Quality Award identifies the Versico contractors who have set themselves apart by providing high-quality installations on a consistent basis. The award recipients demonstrate to the public, their clients and their colleagues that they take pride in their profession and are dedicated to raising the bar for performance within the industry, according to Versico program documents.

The minimum requirements for a Versico Gold Medal Quality Contractor include:

  • A minimum of three years as a Versico-authorized roofing contractor
  • Must meet certain volume requirements in terms of square feet installed and number of projects
  • Have three consecutive years of warranted installations
  • Have fewer warranty claims, repeat inspections, and dollars spent on warranty repairs than a majority of Versico-authorized roofing contractors


"We are proud to honor the most elite group of roofing professionals that contribute to our commitment in providing services that promote outstanding craftsmanship and long-term quality. Our Gold Medal Quality Contractors achieve outstanding inspection ratings on a job-by-job basis and are evidence of the high standards that we set for all of our contractors and system installations," says Versico Roofing Systems.


Bade is a multiple year recipient of the Firestone Inner Circle of Quality Award and a multiple year recipient of the Versico Excalibur Reward.
