Reviews from contractors and building owners across the U S:
“In 1980 I attended a warranty training class at Conklin for the first time, which was nothing more than a seminar on what the new white roof coatings were and where they might fit. As we have grown in the coating market, the training programs have grown. The information that we go through today is about what we have accomplished in the last thirty nine years of successful applications. I am proud to be part of the training staff at Conklin today because we can share the things we have learned over the past thirty nine years, both good and not so good. Between the experience of the trainers and questions asked from the contractors in attendance you will receive the best training in the Industry from those who were part of pioneering the white roofing revolution.” Stan Volkman, MN Conklin Contractor
“Being responsible for the maintenance of many roofs across the US, it is our task to always search for ways to improve the process of galvanized roofing. Our main goal is a pleased customer. To make sure we’re doing our best, we did a test a couple of years ago. It consisted of coating a 200,000 square foot roof. To test our system properly, half was done with our new corrugated metal, on top of which stood a fine silicone coating, and the other half was done with the Conklin MR system. When observing the results a year later, we’ve seen that the silicone roof counted six leaks altogether. The Conklin roof didn’t have a single leak. ” Charles France, Roof Planner Fortune 200 Company
“I started Stout Construction in 1983. In 2005 we added Conklin roofing systems and started Stout Roofing and Coatings to our construction business to install Conklin roof coatings in Havana, Illinois to help meet the needs for our commercial building owners, and solutions for their flat, metal and low slope roofs. Conklin Roofing Systems solved roofing issues on commercial roofs for our customers better than we ever expected. We seldom receive a call back on a roof after we have applied a Conklin roofing system on.” Mike Stout, IL Stout Roofing & Coatings
“In 1980, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas began reroofing their facilities using polyurethane foam. Texas A&M kept careful records on the performance of their new roofing system and found they have reaped reductions in maintenance costs as well as decreased energy expenses. Now with over 7 million square feet of polyurethane foam in place, Texas A&M uses nothing else for new or remedial roofing.” Texas A&M University
