Employee training is the most important component to a successful business plan and often times is the most overlooked. We recognized early on that our employees hold the key to our quality and overall success. That’s why we continue to invest in training and education. The roofing industry is constantly changing, pushing the limits of technology and the discovery of new building materials. The only way to keep up is to stay educated, we do this with a combination of in-class and hands-on courses. Last week, we spent a day with Carlisle SynTec Systems, a worldwide leader in commercial roofing and waterproofing systems. This course provided continued education to a group of estimators and focused on the latest changes to EPDM (rubber) roof systems. These roof systems have been around for over 30 years, yet they continue to change and improve as new products are developed. Carlisle is on the leading edge of using manufacturing technologies to produce products that increase labor savings while achieving higher quality finished roofs.
We had an unexpected guest (Squirrel) show up to our training, he proved to be more agile than even our most seasoned roofers!
