Throughout 2016, we saw the industry continue to rebound, with growth in both commercial and residential construction. For us at Knickerbocker Roofing, this proved to be another successful year, as we proudly promoted workplace safety, responsible building techniques, and seasonal protection solutions. Now, our team is looking ahead as we gear up for what’s sure to be an exciting 2017.
This year we will continue our mission as top industry problem solvers, offering only the best solutions and high-quality product installation from our thoroughly skilled employees. Our biggest assets are efficiency (both in time and general roofing construction, repairs, and installation), sheet metal, and waterproofing industries through our conscientious and knowledgeable work ethic that continuously outshines our competition and meets or exceeds our clients’ expectations.
Inwardly, the Knickerbocker team sets sights on important trade shows to expand our already remarkable knowledge of the industry. And 2017 will be no exception as we’ve already hit the ground running.
To kick off the new year, our team attended the Chicago Roofing Contractors Association (CRCA) Trade Show & Seminars January 19th-20th. The 34th annual trade show was held at the Drury Lane Conference Center in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., and featured expert keynote speakers, educational breakout sessions, and nearly 200 exhibitors showcasing on the expo floor.
The sold-out 2017 CRCA Trade Show proved again to be one of the biggest events in the industry; top leaders from all around the region gathered under one roof to discuss the latest trends and innovations in roofing. Our team was particularly excited to learn about new roofing technologies and what to expect this year. Presentations topics included steep slope ventilation, equipment safety, and structural lightweight concrete research. We were happy to catch up with old customers, see new faces, and, most of all, learn from other industry professionals.
Our team can’t wait to jump into even more 2017 trade shows and seminars, giving us the opportunity to continue providing our customers with our top-tech, high-quality, reliable roofing services they’ve come to expect from our team. IRE kicks off March 1st through the 3rd! Visit the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada sponsored by NRCA. The distinguished roofing construction and maintenance event is one of the finest industry gatherings for professionals to compare and learn about new products, best practices, latest trends, technology advances, and innovations to success.
