Martin says, “Our crews are all trained directly by the manufacturer and our products all have a warranty from the manufacturer. By using better products, insisting upon a Quality Control Manager to oversee each project, and requiring continual training, we excel.”
Monarch’s success is a reflection of the many certifications and awards earned for performance, reliability, installation, service, and consumer protection. More importantly, Monarch Roofing is a GAF Master Elite™ contractor, which speaks to the quality of their work and their dependability. “Only 3% of contractors nationwide hold this distinction. Taking our training and certification further by being one of only 4 GAF President’s Club Awardees with 2 stars in both North and South Carolina,” Martin explained. Monarch Roofing is also a Haag Certified Commercial Roofing Inspector, a Certified Green Roofer, and many more.
A big shift in the roofing industry is the extended warranties on shingles, some good up to 50 years on products and 25 years on labor. Because of Monarch’s certifications, they are privileged to extend a warranty of 10 years on labor to match the warranties of contractors on new home construction. “This gives third-party accountability, and it comes with no extra cost,” Martin said. That’s a big selling point for builders.
Another area where quality work and good warranties are important is with roof replacements, which are about 60% of Monarch’s business. “Over the past several years we’ve had so many storms in the area. Hail damage, hurricanes, flooding, high winds has been hard on roofs.” A roof replacement means the old material is removed and replaced with quality shingles that give peace of mind.
A new trending product in the industry is the American Harvest architectural shingles. “The patterns are incredible, and the colors are more alive in the pebbles, especially with the Timberline,” Martin noted. Builders are using more of the designer shingles in their spec homes in order to diversify and make their communities stand out. “They’re realizing designer shingles can increase a property’s value by 7%,” Martin added.
Another exciting trend in the roofing industry is solar roofs. Monarch Roofing has been installing solar roofs for 2 years but has seen a significant jump in sales over the past 6 months. “There is no better time to install a solar roof. There are a lot of environmental credits available. Local utilities are offering percentage discounts and federal and state tax credits are often available.” Martin advised.
