America's #1 Metal Roofing Contractor Network
Grows by Over 25%
Fayetteville, NC -- Already America's #1 factory trained residential metal roofing contractor network, Union Corrugating's MetalPro program has seen a record number of new members in 2013. MetalPro helps new and experienced metal roofing contractors refine their skills and stay up to date on the latest installation procedures.
"Contractors are on the front lines of the metal roofing market, and they are seeing an increased interest and popularity of residential metal roofing," said Jason Thornton, Union's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "As a result, we decided to look at how we could add training sessions to the MetalPro program to assure our contractors stay ahead of this increasing market."
The MetalPro program provides training on the latest products and installation processes and techniques with a focus on residential applications. It also provides members with sales and marketing information they can use when talking with homeowners. Jason added, "In 2014, we will be conducting a minimum of one MetalPro session each week for the entire year. We've also added more advanced training so that existing members can continue to learn."
The Basic MetalPro training class is required for all new members. In addition, Union has added new classes to the 2014 schedule, including:
MetalPro Standing Seam Installation – Session focuses on all three types of our standing seam products -- screw-flange, clipped, and mechanically seamed.
MetalPro StoneShield Installation – Session focuses on installation of our StoneShield stone coated shingle products.
MetalPro Sales Training – Session covers product features and benefits as well as best practice sales techniques for selling to homeowners.
