Esteemed honor for Outstanding Workmanship
Oreland, PA, May 15, 2009 — Russell Roofing, the region’s leading residential and commercial roofing service contractor, announced today that they have been awarded a 2009 Gold Circle Award Honorable Mention for Outstanding Workmanship: Steep Category from the National Roofing Contractor’s Association “NRCA”.
Russell Roofing received the award for installing a roof and gutter system for Keystone Hospice. The project, which also included extensive carpentry work, was a complete restoration of this 142 year-old Victorian mansion. The residence offers a place where terminally ill patients can live out their days in a comfortable, home-like environment, surrounded by family and friends.
Prior to its use by Keystone Hospice, the building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, had been neglected for over 75 years and was severely deteriorated. Russell Roofing installed a complete roof and gutter system, which involved the removal of several kinds of steep slope including slate and asphalt shingles. Russell Roofing then fabricated complex copper, which was installed over flashings, window wells, gutters and downspouts. All work was completed during winter months while Keystone Hospice was fully staffed and operational.
“After an extensive selection process, we chose Russell Roofing to assist in the renovation of the Keystone House because of their expertise in historic restoration,” says Gail Inderwies, President and Executive Director of Keystone Hospice, “We are profoundly grateful to Russell Roofing for their superb craftsmanship, dedication to authenticity, and compassionate consideration of the people who depend on us for comfort and of our staff who provide their care.”
The Gold Circle Awards program annually honors NRCA members and affiliate organizations from around the world. Recipients are recognized by their peers for significant contributions to the roofing industry in one of four categories: workmanship, innovation, service to the community, and service to the industry.
