S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Celebrates Another Successful Year Collecting Food for the Maryland Food Bank

— S&K’s Fifth Annual Food Drive deemed a success with a ton of food
donated and a $2,000 monetary donation from S&K —

ELDERSBURG, MD. January 6, 2009 – S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) announced today another successful food drive – its fifth consecutive drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org).

This year, S&K collected food and other non-perishable items at their showroom in Eldersburg from November 4 through December 18. On December 18, team members at S&K, including owner Don Katzenberger and sales director and food drive coordinator Charlie McCurry, packed up the donations and headed to the food bank. Upon arrival, the food was weighed in at just over 2,000 pounds and Katzenberger wrote a check on the spot for $2,000 and presented it to the Maryland Food Bank.

“We are on target to distribute close to 17 million pounds of food in Fiscal Year 2009. This is three million more pounds than we distributed last fiscal year. It’s wonderful to see this increase in donations, especially during these harsh economic times,” says CEO of the Maryland Food Bank, Deborah Flateman. “Demand has increased between 25-50 percent since January 2008, making all donations that we get crucial. Donations from companies like S&K really do make a difference.”

“The community support we see year to year is remarkable,” stated McCurry. “Even in tough times like these it is nice to see that people who may not have much of their own are still able to give to others.” Large food and monetary donations from local organizations like EcoStar (EcoStar.Carlisle.com), the Marquis Foundation (MarquisFoundation.org) and Brave New Markets (BraveNewMarkets.com) helped a great deal. Together with individual donations, we achieved another successful food drive,” added McCurry.

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Ranks as One of Nation’s Top Home Improvement Companies

— Maryland company ranks #42 on prestigious Replacement 100 list —

ELDERSBURG, MD. October 28, 2008. S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows, Inc. (SKRoofing.com) announced today their place on the prestigious Replacement 100 (ReplacementContractor.com), a nationally recognized ranking of leading U.S. home improvement companies, at an impressive #42.

“We are tremendously proud of our reputation in the home improvement industry”, stated Don Katzenberger, founder and president of S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows. “We are very proud of the services we provide our customers and are honored by this recognition.”

Growing in a Down Economy

One of the ways in which S&K secured a high rank on The Replacement 100 was continued growth in a down economy. Nothing comes easy in this industry and this year home improvement companies have faced some tough challenges. Along with a sharp decline in the housing market, rising fuel and energy prices are rapidly driving up the cost of building products. Contractors have been forced to pass along these cost increases to their customers causing many to suffer serious decreases in sales. S&K, however, due to some creative internal restructuring, has been able to absorb a portion of these increases in an effort to save their customers money and continue to grow.

The company also continues to grow by adapting to changing customer needs and offering more energy efficient products. “Our customers are asking for help in making their homes ‘greener’ and we are stepping up to the challenge”, stated Katzenberger. “This year in addition to new eco-friendly windows, roofing and decking, we introduced an attic insulation product which can save homeowners up to 20% on their heating and cooling bills.” The strategy has paid off. This year, S&K projects an increase of approximately 10% in sales over last year.

About The Replacement 100

Each year Replacement Contractor magazine recognizes leading U.S. companies who are engaged in the replacement of roofing, siding, windows, decks and various ancillary lines on The Replacement 100. The top 100 companies featured on the list are evaluated in terms of volume and size, or more specifically, in terms of their total revenue. Other factors are also influential in terms of evaluation, such as corporate growth and the strategic management of the company’s business. Every company on the list is considered an industry leader.

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Makes Improvements to Their Top New Business Generator

— Successful website fuels expansion and enhancements —

ELDERSBURG, MD. January 30, 2008 – S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com), known for providing quality home improvements for their clients, is making improvements of their own – to their website. The upgraded and updated site has been designed to deliver a wealth of home improvement information in an easy-to-navigate and easy-to-read design, making it a more helpful tool for homeowners.

“Our new site is more reflective of the quality of work that we do”, said Don Katzenberger, president of S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows. “These days, homeowners are not only doing their research about home improvement products, they are finding and pre-judging companies by the quality of their website. So, not only do you have to have a web presence, you’re actually starting the sales process by selling yourself through the web,” Katzenberger adds. “An online brochure just doesn’t cut it any longer.”

Messing with a Good Thing Keeps It That Way

Although the majority of the company’s business – nearly 80% – comes from repeat business and referrals, the website was successful in generating new business leads that resulted in more than $1.5M in sales in 2007. However, there have been recent changes in web users’ expectations and new developments in technology, which prompted S&K’s site overhaul. The new design, recently completed by Brave New Markets of Owings Mills, MD, includes expanded product pages and imaging, along with a cleaner arrangement of information that is easier to read and makes navigation effortless. It also incorporates a wider format to accommodate today’s upward trend in screen resolution.

Consider It Another Sales Person

Since their previous site was launched in July of 2003, also by Brave New Markets, it has remained at the top of search engines for select terms that are key to generating leads for S&K. The site redevelop effort took painstaking measures to ensure that rankings will remain high and the site productive in terms of sales leads. “Our website is close to being another member of our sales staff,” said Charlie McCurry, director of sales. “While the website can’t close a sale, it certainly can – and does – prospect and bring in up to 20 new customer inquiries every week. If each person on our sales staff was responsible for bringing in that many prospects each week, we would be that much more successful!”

Site Not Just for Searchers

The website is not only a helpful tool for homeowners, it is also a tool used frequently by S&K’s staff. For example, the company is able to provide visitors with samples of S&K’s quality work by presenting before and after pictures of clients’ homes. Additionally, product options and information on the site is used by staff to virtually walk customers through an online showroom, saving homeowners valuable time.

“Large donations from organizations like EcoStar (EcoStarInc.com), the Marquis Foundation (MarquisFoundation.org), Brave New Markets (BraveNewMarkets.com) and the Wesley Freedom United Methodist Church (WesleyFreedom.org) helped a great deal, and together with individual donations, we were able to exceed our goal for the fourth year running,” added McCurry
