Roofing Contractor Magazine's award goes to IKO ShieldPRO plus+ TM Member Tim Leeper Roofing
KANKAKEE, IL, Oct. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - IKO, a global manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing shingles and related roofing products, is very pleased to announce that a valued member of the company's ShieldPRO plus+ Program has earned national recognition as this year's recipient.
Tim Leeper Roofing in Old Hickory, Tennessee, was declared the winner by Roofing Contractor Magazine and a panel of industry peers.
"The selection process is quite rigorous," IKO's Director of Marketing, Carol Perkins explains. "Roofing Contractor judges all nominees against a list of criteria based on their integrity, core values, beliefs and attitude as well as their contribution to their community, relationship to the roofing industry and their commitment to customer service."
Tim Leeper Roofing is going into its 12th year of business. Leeper says, "It's important for a young company to build trust with homeowners, so I aligned myself with reputable suppliers and pursued certifications from the very start.
"Then, in 2011, one of my managers suggested that we get involved with the IKO ShieldPRO plus+ Program and become a Certified Contractor."
Leeper goes on to say that a year or so later, his area was devastated by a storm and his company was able to meet the huge local demand for reputable roofers and roofing products. That's when his business really grew and established itself.
"IKO delivers a quality product that we can recommend to homeowners with confidence. And the ShieldPRO plus+ Program offers us support and tools to help us build our business."
John DeRosa, National Manager of Sales Training & Development at IKO concurs. "Our ShieldPRO plus+ Program is specifically designed to go beyond mere technical product knowledge. We give our Program Members the training and latest tools they need to help them improve bottom-line profitability. Their results and success are important to us.
"At IKO, we're all very proud that one of our many ShieldPRO plus+ Certified Contractors has achieved this national recognition for having demonstrated excellence in the roofing industry."
Perkins sums it up as a very big win for all concerned. The full story of Tim Leeper Roofing will be featured in the November edition of Roofing Contractor Magazine.
