With Technology and Premium Offerings That Can Boost Your Sales This Year

This season, there are more opportunities than ever to incorporate technology and premium products into your sales & business processes to give yourself an edge over the competition.

State of the Art Roofing Technology

trudefdurationflex2SBS Shingles were first introduced in southern and coastal markets many years ago as a class-4 impact-resistant solution to hail and harsh weather. In the last few years, their flexibility and granule retention characteristics have made them an attractive performance upgrade here in the Midwest for homeowners that don't want to put on another roof. Atlas and GAF have had SBS shingles available in our market for years; CertainTeed introduced NorthGate two years ago and Owens Corning has introduced Duration Flex this Spring. Wimsatt stocks them all and we are happy to provide samples, literature, and education to demonstrate the advantages of SBS shingles to your clients.

Versico-APEELIn our industry, good labor is in short supply. Versico Roofing Systems has demonstrated a steady commitment to developing innovative labor-saving technologies that will save low slope roofing contractors time and money on the job. CAV-Grip adhesive primer a quick application with a spray gun that can save up to 60% labor time compared to traditional bonding adhesive. The RapidLock roofing system is an adhesiveless attachment system using Velcro brand securable solutions with no temperature restrictions, no VOCs, no odors, and - best of all - an incredible 80% labor savings (compared to traditional bonding adhesive) for fully attached EPDM and TPO membranes. Finally, Versico's APEEL technology covers TPO with a protective film that is removed upon job completion to reveal a clean and aesthetically pleasing finished product without the need for pressure-washing the roof.
