The evaluation process involves a comprehensive system that enables David Weekley Homes to measure excellence among its partners. Providers that receive the highest scores throughout the year are presented with the prestigious National Preferred Partners Award. A total of 140 companies were evaluated this year, and 18% percent achieved the designation of National Preferred Partner.
In addition, the builder honored Sherwin-Williams with the Gold Star Award. This new award recognizes an outstanding supplier that has gone above and beyond in their partnership with David Weekley Homes.
Based in Houston, Texas, David Weekley Home is one of the largest privately-held home builders in the United States.
“2020 and 2021 were very unique years,” said Schiegg. “Record numbers of home sales, a global pandemic, a major freeze and significant supply chain disruptions have resulted in the perfect storm – demand that far exceeds supply. We are so grateful that National Preferred Partners like GAF have provided their expertise and guidance. They have made it possible for us to continue to provide the best in design, choice and service to our customers, despite the challenges.”
Beacon Building Products was a repeat winner of the honor. "This recognition speaks to our seamless execution, hands-on approach to partnerships, and practical innovations, such as our proprietary Beacon PRO+ digital suite of tools,” Greg Bloom, VP national accounts at Beacon said.
Weyerhaeuser received the honor for the 13th time.
“Without National Preferred Partners like Weyerhaeuser, David Weekley Homes would not be able to deliver high-quality products and exceptional customer service,” said Schiegg, vice president of supply chain services. “By constantly striving for the best, together we’re creating a world-class home building experience for our customers.”
