Program launched to set applicators apart in the industry
MONTREAL (April 16, 2019) – Today, at Canada’s premier roofing exposition – ROOFTech – IKO, a global leader of residential roofing shingles and commercial waterproofing and roofing products, launched its new IKO Approved Applicator Program (IAAP) for commercial contractors. IAAP helps roofing contractors increase business competitiveness as registered IKO product applicators. The program’s two-level registration process revolutionizes a contractor’s tool bag, equipping them with the confidence and credibility that specifiers and architects value.
Through successful completion of IAAP training programs and the full registration process, contractors receive recognition on IKO’s commercial website and can apply for IKO’s extended limited warranties on behalf of their clients. Designers and building owners also find, as they’re able to qualify a contractor’s credentials, confidence knowing that each approved contractor they hire is trained in IKO’s specific application standards.
“Our IKO Approved Applicator Program is designed to produce high-quality, IKO – approved experts for architects and specifiers, providing all parties the confidence they need on their projects,” said Jay Simpson, regional manager for IKO’s commercial division, Canada Prairies. “With two levels of registration, this program equips independent contractors, while offering their project partners and clientele top-tier value with the quality training each independent contractor receives.”
Industry experts – from building owners to designers to contractors – each reap their own set of perks with IAAP. Workmanship review and specialized training are provided for roofing contractors. And, building owners and designers enjoy confidence from the vetting process. In addition, IAAP members receive remarkable benefits, including authorization to apply for Limited Labour and Membrane Warranties or IKO Diamond Shield Warranties for roofing applications, as well as a three-year validation.
Contractors ready to elevate their roofing system application for commercial projects can inquire about the IAAP by contacting their local IKO commercial representative.
