McHenry, IL - Firestone Building Products Company LLC, a leading manufacturer and supplier of a comprehensive "Roots to Rooftops" portfolio of products, recently affirmed McHenry, IL-based Metalmaster Roofmaster Inc. as one of the nation's leading Firestone Building Products Red Shield™ Licensed Roofing Contractors by bestowing upon the company its Master Contractor, Inner Circle of Quality and President's Club awards for 2014. Of the more than 3,000 Firestone contractors nationwide, Metalmaster Roofmaster was one of only 21 to receive all three of the manufacturer's major awards. Metalmaster Roofmaster Inc. is the parent company of Sno Gem Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of snow retention and rooftop attachment products for the metal construction industry.
