Choice Roof Contractor Mentor Takes Nationwide Road Tour

“Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to stand out and try.” – Zig Ziglar

There have been many stories of how our nationwide contractor support network has been presenting life-changing opportunities. But we really got to see things in action when Senior Mentor, Sam Hostetler, took to the road for a three-week tour across the United States.

Over those many days, Sam spoke with not only people already involved, but also individuals looking to see how they could benefit from joining the network. The trip was inspiring on many levels, but especially in regards to how important it can be to commercial roofers to take full advantage of the marketing, mentorship and training opportunities offered to them, as well as the rewards experienced by Sam, as he works alongside and experiences the growth potential in each individual.

6,500+ Mile Trip Across the United States

mapFrom Montana to Texas, Colorado to Georgia; the nationwide tour presented unique opportunities to connect with many new as well as experienced contractors who were at different stages of their business involvement in commercial roofing. The roofers Sam met with became enthralled with the idea of using the Conklin coatings and membranes because of the proven track record the company is known for and they also quickly recognized the income-building potential that is attractive to roofing contractors during times when income is typically decreasing – such as off-season or as they approach retirement age. Another area that Sam found to be appealing to the roofers he spoke with on his trip is the service guarantee that is offered to contractors who choose to become a part of the Choice Roof opportunity because being able to offer this type of guarantee even when companies go out of business or change hands is a huge selling point.

Sam met with plenty of new contractors and salespeople at the two-day hands-on Conklin roof systems training, including the team from KCI Roofing, Cudeso, Bright Spot Wind & Solar, and an equipment dealer’s sales representative. These businessmen came from all over the U.S. to learn about Conklin roof products and to experience in person the important benefits of joining our network being offered to them, including:

• Free lead generation
• Lifetime mentorship
• Discounted product pricing
• Dedicated marketing support
• Advanced product knowledge
• Unique roofing sales material

Next, Sam traveled to Georgia, where he met with contractors and our partner, Spray Foam Systems. Energy efficiency is so important, especially in today’s economy, and Spray Foam Systems partnership gives roofing contractors joining the network the ability to offer spray foam roofing and insulation services. In addition, Spray Foam Systems also provides free, live technical support on their equipment and has the capability to ship immediately all ordered parts and supplies to guarantee customer satisfaction with delivery.

In Texas, Sam was excited to meet up with and to introduce the network to Cory Stone, president of Ultimate Choice Roofing in Lewisville, Texas. During Sam’s stay, Cory made the decision to add Conklin products to his portfolio. Other contractors Sam spoke with include Kyle Davis of Super Roof Man of Fort Worth, TX and Michael Rankin of Horizon Construction in Austin, TX. Sam also liaised with team members Brian Reid and Ian Myers. Sam was able to connect with these and many more high caliber people on his trip, all of whom were attracted to the exciting benefits being offered because they were quick to realize that this is the only business opportunity that allows people to go out and the more they help fellow roofers by bringing them into the network, this will in turn lead to a higher level of success for them as well.

Leaving Texas, Sam traveled to Montana, passing through Colorado along the way; meeting and greeting many more roofing contractors interested in building relationships, adding great products and services to their portfolios and receiving the mentorship and support from expert commercial roofers. Sam became convinced that building a network with the Choice Roof Contractor Group and giving as many contractors the opportunity to receive the tools, support and opportunity they need to grow their companies was the way to go for everyone involved. The networking opportunity offered allows everyone involved to make a lot more for themselves and to go further than they may have dreamed or imagined they could achieve on their own. What has been created so far is but a drop in the bucket and there is still an “untouched frontier” to develop in the roofing industry. Choice Roof Contractor Group has proven its ability to build up successful commercial roofing businesses for contractors, and expert mentorship is the vessel that will allow virtually anyone with the entrepreneurial dream to achieve their financial and business desires.

White Roof Coating Cost

Today’s blog post will be of interest to building owners and facility managers, as it provides an overview of the cost of white roof coatings. Known for their ability to “restore” a commercial roof and make it an energy-saving asset, white roof coatings are often far more cost-effective than a complete commercial roof replacement. However, when it comes to roof coatings themselves, just what costs do they involve?

When looking at the cost of roof coatings, there are a few things to keep in mind. People should think of what a roof coating job will require in terms of cost per square foot. Plus, a distinction must be made between jobs with only one roof coating application and jobs where a complete roof coating system is applied to an existing roof membrane. These factors will help in weighing the cost burdens of both options as how well each option truly performs.

According to industry experts, material costs for just a single roof coating application can range from $0.50-$1.00 per square foot. These costs will definitely vary based on location and dynamics of local roofing markets, though. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also provides a cost range estimate of $0.75-$1.00 per square foot for roof coatings on low slope roofs. Installation costs depend on your local market, the experience of the contractor, and other factors.

On the other hand, applying a complete white roof coating system on an existing roof membrane, or just “membrane coating system” for short, involves more material inputs. This comprehensive white roof coating system typically starts at $1.00 per square foot for just materials. However, it offers far more durability and longevity than a single coating application presents.

Why is the Membrane Coating System Superior to a Single Roof Coating Application?

energy saving roof coatingFor one, the membrane coating system requires more extensive preparation than a single coating application. The existing commercial roof surface must be vigorously cleansed and prepared before the membrane coating system’s primer is applied. Because of the extensive prep work involved, the membrane coating system tends to be more long-lasting than a simple coating application does.

The membrane coating system is fully adhered, has more than one layer of protection, and is capped off by a top coat which is completely seamless. On top of these features, the membrane coating system also comes with an exceptionally strong, fully-knit polyester fabric. This great-performing fabric material – known as Spunflex reinforced fabric – meets military-grade standards for performance. The Spunflex fabric is used to reinforce an existing commercial roof’s seams and exposed areas around protrusions, rooftop units, curbs, and more. The end result is that the commercial roof’s strength and durability are substantially enhanced. In turn, that dramatically improves the roof’s resistance to splitting or rupturing, even over time.

These features make the membrane coating system an exceptional waterproofing agent, give it greater longevity than other coating solutions available today, and render it a strong-performing solution against leaks and other roofing problems.

What Are Other Benefits of White Roof Coatings?

energy saving roof coatingSo, a membrane coating system will have less-demanding expense burdens over its lifetime than a single coating application will experience. With the “white” roof surface of the membrane coating system, though, what are some other benefits that building owners and facility managers can enjoy?

  • ENERGY STAR® certified roofing protection and possible tax benefits
  • Up to 85% reflectivity of sun’s heat energy and lowered roof surface temperature by 80°
  • More comfortable and cooler building interior or workplace
  • Potentially 30% savings in annual cooling costs
  • Up to 15% reduction in annual utility costs
  • Lower upkeep and maintenance costs for a building’s HVAC system
  • Lower repair and maintenance costs for damage from sun’s deteriorating effects

In fact, the Conklin white roof coating systems we apply can pay for themselves in 5-7 years with annual energy savings!

The energy-saving potential of white roofs has been well-documented. The Urban Green Council has estimated that white roofs on commercial buildings could generate 89% net energy savings. Plus, recently in 2010, it was estimated that if 85% of air-conditioned buildings in the United States had white roofs, building owners and facility owners could see $735 million in annual energy savings. There are many case studies or industry analyses demonstrating white roofs’ credibility and superiority over white roof paint as well.

Why Go With White Roof Coatings?

metal roof coatingHere are a few other reasons that put the value of white roof coatings in context:

  • White roof coatings reflect that vast majority of the sun’s heat energy instead of absorbing it
  • They offer a powerful solution to the “urban heat island effect” of concern today
  • They have “elastomeric” properties, or the ability to easily expand and contract in hot and cold temperature extremes
  • They generally do not involve roof tear-off, disposal, or other costly, time-consuming procedures associated with roof replacement
  • They are excellent resisters of cracking and weathering caused by long-term sun exposure
  • They reduce a building’s carbon footprint and lessen its reliance on the electricity grid
  • White roof coatings greatly counter the adverse effects of greenhouse gas emissions and are “sustainable” building materials
  • They lower peak energy demand in the summer season

In short, white roof coatings can enhance a building’s performance, lower its energy consumption, strengthen its eco-friendliness, and help save thousands in energy costs.
