The 2nd Annual RCAW Trade Show

Back for a 2nd year!

Last year, the Roofing Contractors Association of Washington (RCAW) started a new tradition by hosting their 1st annual trade show, and we were there! Sponsored by some of the very companies that we work with everyday, in our opinion, the first trade show was a success. On February 16th, Washington’s roofing professionals and contractors met again at Tukwila’s Double Tree Hotel to learn about new products and programs, enjoy show specials, experience educational seminars, and snack on some yummy appetizers. Check out what happened this year below!

The Sponsors

The sponsors of this event really help make the whole thing happen. This years sponsors included IKO, Salal Credit Union, CertainTeed, NuRay Metals, Owens Corning, and DecTec. It was great to see some new information about and socialize with some of our favorite companies to work with!

The Classes

RCAW Trade Show 2017Part of the effectiveness of this annual trade show are the break out sessions. These sessions were informative and spread out throughout the day, so the participants could attend as many as they needed to. Classes included an introductory to the RCAW, fall protection training, “First Man Up” by safety matters, and more! We are excited to see what this year brought to the trade show! We were able to attend a few classes, and talk with several of the booths about new products and services. With the momentum of last years success, this year was also a memorable and educational time!

The 1st Annual RCAW Trade Show

The start of a great tradition

The Roofing Contractors Association of Washington (RCAW) recently had their first annual trade show, and Chase Construction NW, Inc. was there! Held March 25th at Tukwila’s Double Tree Hotel, professionals of the roofing industry gathered for networking, education, new business opportunities, and entertainment. We saw a lot of familiar faces and even met some new ones!

Who Was There

This event was sponsored by GAF, IKO , TAM Skylights, Malarkey Roofing Products, and Owens Corning. If those names sound familiar, its because we work with these companies everyday!

GAF Timberline HD ShinglesGAF is of course  North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing. As GAF Master Elite Roofers, we install quite a lot of their products, including one our favorite, the Timberline Lifetime High Definition Shingle! It was great to see GAF’s residential TM Donovan Gladstone, and their commercial TM Shawn Nolte!

RCAW Trade Show 2016It was also great to see our friend Steve Sloan from at IKO Industries! IKO is a world-wide leader in the roofing, waterproofing and insulation industry for residential and commercial markets. As a ShieldPro Plus contractor with IKO, we are very familiar with their products, one of our favorite is the IKO Cambridge Architectural Roofing Shingles. Cambridge’s heavy shingle weight is designed to put up more resistance against weather and the test of time. So whether you need to match the classic style of a heritage home or add contemporary class to a modern residence, Cambridge architectural roofing shingles make roof replacements an exciting endeavor!

TAM SkylightsWhen it comes to skylights, TAM is one of our favorite to install. This family owned business is located in Seattle in a 50,000 sq ft facility that produces the highest quality skylights in the Northwest. We have a ton of satisfied customers bringing the light and beauty of the great Northwest into their home, thanks to the professionals at TAM!

Malarkey Roofing and Owens Corning are two other amazing companies to work with and it was great to have a chance to reconnect and visit with their teams at this years event!

These were only a few of all the amazing industry professionals that we were able to spend some quality time with thanks to the RCAW. The night finished with MacArthur Co’s own John Cannon, aka Big John, leading his band, The Low Down Drifters, to close the night off with some amazing live music. I would say that the first of this annual event was definitely a success.

IKO Launches New Line of Shingles!

Innovative Laminated Asphalt Roofing Shingles!

Our trusted partner, IKO, has launched advanced architectural laminated asphalt roofing shingles! The new addition to the company’s line-up is said to be among the most advanced architectural laminated asphalt roofing shingles IKO has ever produced. The innovative feature of this new shingle’s advanced design is the addition of the “ArmourZone.” This is an enlarged nailing area that allows for faster installation that is easier and much more accurate. The addition of a tear-resistant, reinforced IKO Chase Construction North West Inc.woven band within the ArmourZone provides fastening strength over a larger surface area of the shingle, helping to resist pull-through. Two nailing lines, 1-1/4 inches apart, are able to guide installers to Dynasty shingles’ wider nailing surface for correct nail placement. The fastening power ensures that shingles will perform as they should against high wind and inclement weather when the nails are applied in this special “ArmourZone” area. According to Carol Perkins, IKO’s Director of Marketing, “Dynasty shingles are warranted to withstand high winds of up to 130 mph with the use of only four nails. That’s a category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane scale. And homeowners needn’t worry- the nail lines aren’t visible once the shingles are installed.”

Additional Benefits

The new Dynasty roofing product is made in IKO’s custom “Advantage” size. Installation is faster and easier due to the fact that these shingles are bigger than most competitors’ comparable products. To further enhance the curb appeal of your finished roof, the shingles also offer greater exposure. Other features of the Dynasty’s shingle construction include IKO’s tough, Fastlock modified bitumen sealant. It’s formulated to be thick and aggressive to form a strong bond. Algae Block ceramic copper-coated granules provide built-in algae-resistance as well. Perkins states that homeowners will appreciate the deep shadow bands and dimensional profile of IKO’s new Dynasty shingles. “Theres a choice of seven stunning colors: Appalachian, Sedona, Biscayne, Cornerstone, Pacific Rim, Castle Grey and Glacier. They’re all designed to complement any style of architecture and appeal to the homeowner’s personal sense of style. Dynasty IKO Chase Construction North West Inc.shingles can make a home stand out or blend into its natural surroundings.” To ensure a stunning roofline, there are also matching hip and ridge cap shingles. Along with the Dynasty shingles, they are a part of IKO’s PRO4 Roofing Components which “work together to provide homeowners with effective protection against the elements and total peace of mind.”
