At Choice Roof Contractor Group, we help to connect industrial and commercial clientele with capable roofing contractors who excel in full-scale roofing services. Our team recently sat down with the Vice President of an Austin, Texas based company rooted in 40+ years of roofing, construction, and insurance restoration expertise. Their company principal has helped 10,000+ property owners over three decades.
During our conversation, we discussed the effectiveness of Conklin roofing products and how they stand out in the crowded fluid applied roof products market. Mike also shared how Choice Roof is providing Horizon’s team with a level of mentorship, technical support, and overall assistance that is hard-to-find in the commercial roofing industry.
Choice Roof Contractors Testimonial Highlights
Here are the highlights of the discussion:
Our product manufacturer partner, Conklin, stands out with its roof coating systems. With 15 years in the roofing industry, Mike has worked with a wide range of roofing product manufacturers. Prior to Choice Roof, he had used other coating products and found them to be lacking in a number of ways. They were not properly mixing, their configuration was watered down, or they were hard to work with.
He had heard about Conklin’s strong product performance and efficacy. And after apply the products himself and going through Conklin’s extensive two-day applicator training, it confirmed his perception: they were of good, dependable quality, had a very thick consistency, and were easy to use.
Conklin’s applicator training equips roofing applicators to offer more value to their clientele. With other roofing product distributors, Mike recalls the extent of their applicator training. In many cases, these sessions consisted of little more than a couple of hours of product demonstration. Afterward, product representatives would be available for technical support, but not always have a history of product use themselves.
Unlike other roofing product manufacturers, Conklin offers a much more thorough, detailed roofing systems training over two days. In this period, roofing contractors are given in-depth classroom and hands-on education in all components of each Conklin roof system. This equips roofing contractors with greater product knowledge and expertise. Because of this higher level of professionalism and product competency, it strengthens their value to industrial and commercial customers.
Choice Roof Contractor Group offers powerful mentorship, technical support, and more. Aside from high-performance Conklin products, our nationwide network offers access to veteran roofing professionals who are experienced with Conklin products. This life time mentorship is extended at no cost. Mike discussed how this is a great asset to Horizon.
Under our nationwide model, our roofing mentors are individuals who are real, experienced product applicators themselves. It adds a level of depth to the Conklin training, technical support, and product assistance which Horizon can now access. And these roofing mentors can be quickly reached for questions via phone, texting, email, social media, or other communication. They will even offer on-site help with bidding, roof walkthroughs, and actual roofing jobs themselves.
Choice Roof helps roofing companies strengthen their competitive edge. Our nationwide contractor network offers a full-scale of exclusive member benefits. With these, Mike feels really confident about taking Horizon’s commercial roofing division to a new level. Having met Choice Roof’s co-founders personally at the training, he reinforces how much our core team is dedicated to supporting each member for success.
Our experienced mentors and valued partners allow members like Horizon to be more competitive. With access to durable, long-lasting Conklin products and a strong knowledge of how they outperform competing roof systems, they are ready to strengthen their business presence in commercial roofing. And they are well prepared to provide high-quality commercial roofing services to building owners.
