Owens Corning Earns 2018 Women’s Choice Award

Owens Corning announced that it earned the 2018 Women’s Choice Award, which recognizes the brand behind America’s Most Recommended Roofing Products. This designation is based on a national survey reflecting responses from thousands of women in the United States who were asked to select brands they would highly recommend to friends and family. The announcement coincides with National Roofing Week, June 3 through June 9.

“We are honored that women have expressed their confidence in Owens Corning Roofing with the Women’s Choice Award. Women have long driven design and style decisions inside and outside the home, including the roof,” says Sue Burkett, marketing manager, Owens Corning Roofing. “Women consider the functional features of a home’s roofing system that help seal and defend a home from the elements, as well as the aesthetic aspects of the roof.”

A new roof consistently ranks among the top home improvements that achieves a strong return on investment. As a home’s roof typically represents about 40 percent of a home’s exterior, the roof can play a significant role in boosting curb appeal. The summer provides an opportunity for consumers considering home improvements to view their roof as both functional and stylish.

The annual Owens Corning Shingle Color of the Year initiative, which highlights the roof as a design element, is informed by women’s influence in coordinating a home’s external color schemes. The company developed color tools, such as online style boards and visualization resources, to help consumers consider the important aesthetic aspect of a new roof.

Delia Passi, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award stated, “By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, brands like Owens Corning signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices, which is important because women’s spending power continues to grow. They currently control the majority of the purchasing decisions for consumer goods in the United States.”

This award can serve as a competitive differentiator in the marketplace.  “When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. We are pleased to salute Owens Corning Roofing for its focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide,” Passi continued.

GAF Wins Women’s Choice Award

GAF has earned the 2016 Women’s Choice Award based on recommendations from its female customers in a customer satisfaction survey conducted by WomenCertified Inc. using the company’s customer database.

For a fourth consecutive year, GAF received this award based on excellent survey scores, including the vast majority of customers rating the experience and overall quality of GAF as “extremely satisfied.” In fact, 100 percent of the female customers polled said they would definitely recommend GAF to their family and friends.

“The Women’s Choice Award’s mission is to identify which brands are most recommended by women,” says Delia Passi, CEO and founder. “By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, brands like GAF signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices. GAF truly takes ownership of its customer experience.”

“GAF is truly honored to receive the Women’s Choice Award for the fourth year in a row. We are proud that our female customers recognize our ongoing commitment to providing products and tools that women trust and recommend,” states Emily Videtto, vice president of residential marketing and new product development at GAF.

Female consumers represent a driving economic powerhouse, controlling 65 percent, or approximately $20 trillion annually, in global spending and more than 80 percent of U.S. spending, according to the Harvard Business Review and the Continuum’s Women and Children Research Group. Coupling that with a recent Nielsen report on global trust in advertising, which stated that 92 percent of consumers trust recommendations from people they know over any other form of advertising, reveals the significance of being an America’s Most Recommended brand by women.

Passi comments on how the Women’s Choice Award serves as a competitive differentiator in today’s cluttered marketplace: “When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the No. 1 consumer—women.”

“We are pleased to salute GAF for its focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide,” says Passi.
