S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Kicks Off Annual Food Drive to Benefit the Maryland Food Bank, Sets Goals Even Higher

SYKESVILLE, MD — November 16, 2005 –S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (www.skroofing.com) continues its tradition of giving by kicking off their first Holiday food drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (www.mdfoodbank.org).

Now in its second year, S&K’s has even higher expectations than they did for their inaugural drive last year. Last year’s goal – 500 pounds of food and non-perishable goods – was exceeded by 68 pounds, thanks to the generosity of S&K’s staff, vendors and customers. This year they’ve increased the goal to 700 pounds. And to up the ante, S&K will match each pound of food donated with a $1 donation. For every dollar contributed to the Maryland Food Bank, they are able to provide the equivalent of between 6 and 9 meals to Maryland’s needy families and individuals.

S&K chose the Maryland Food Bank because of its long-standing reputation for helping thousands of people in Maryland each week through food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, low-income day care centers, after school programs, senior centers, rehabilitation centers and other food programs. In addition to providing food, the Maryland Food Bank offers ongoing support, services and education to the community food providers in their network.

“S&K has been privileged to have worked with so many generous and kind customers, vendors and staff in our 25 years”, said Maija Kropp, Vice President of S&K, “We look forward each holiday season to giving back in whatever way we can. Because of the success of last year’s drive, this year we’re starting a little earlier and setting our goals even higher. The Maryland Food Bank is a great organization that feeds more than 45,000 of needy Marylanders each week – participating again this year is really a no-brainer for us!”

Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items can be donated at a drop box located at S&K’s office at 1341 W. Liberty Road in Sykesville, just across the street from South Carroll High School. Most needed food items include canned meat, tuna, salmon, ham and chicken, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, cereal, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, and soups. Non-food items also needed include diapers, toilet paper, feminine hygiene items, and plastic/paper plates and cups.

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Growth

Drives Move to New Location

SYKESVILLE, Maryland, November 8, 2005 – In this, the year of their 25th Anniversary, it seems appropriate that S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows, would choose to expand their offices to a new, more spacious location. Appropriate, yes, but not planned – a theme that has been consistent throughout S&K’s amazing 25 year history.

“Growth and success has always been our goal, but I can’t say that there has been a master plan,” says Don Katzenberger, owner and Chief Operating Officer, “other than doing everything in our power to meet and exceed our client’s expectations. We’ve done that well over the years, and the increase in business has resulted in additions to our staff, services and product lines. So when the opportunity to move to a new, larger location came up this year, we acted.”

Now operating throughout Maryland, S&K (www.SKRoofing.com) started out as a local roofing company, but quickly transformed to meet the needs of their growing client base and the expanding Maryland housing market. They are now one of the most successful and fastest growing leaders in the Maryland home improvement industry with an estimated $15M in projected revenues in 2005.

S&K Vice President and CFO Maija Kropp adds, “Don is being modest, but he is right. While there is no ‘master plan’, there are well thought-out and wonderfully executed activities that happen on a day-to-day basis that contribute to our success. We are based 100% on meeting the needs of our clients, which includes high quality work, superior products, expert craftsmanship and a knowledgeable office staff. We have also implemented a number of ways of reaching Maryland homeowners including a useful website, money saving coupons and referral programs.”

What they are doing is working. The increase in business has resulted in the expansion of their headquarters in Sykesville, Maryland, to a new 7,800 square foot location on Liberty Road. The “new” building for S&K is 3 miles east of their existing location at 5399 Enterprise Street in Eldersburg. The building was formerly occupied by the Country Companions store.

S&K will be renovating the building this Fall and expects to move in January, 2006. Renovations will include upstairs offices, a 2,000 square foot lower level Home Improvement Solution Center, as well as two lower level retail store locations.

A State-of-the-Art Home Improvement Solutions Center

Perhaps the most exciting part of the expansion is the Home Improvement Solutions Center. On the inside of the Solutions Center, S&K plans to construct “working models” for many of their products including roofing, siding, gutters, windows, doors and decking. The Solutions Center will be open on Saturdays for homeowners’ convenience, and will feature a private conference area where homeowners can discuss home improvement plans and ideas with S&K’s experts with product samples on hand.

The exterior of the building and Solutions Center will also feature many of the products that S&K offers including metal roofing, architectural windows, doors, siding and maintenance-free decking.

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows Celebrates 25th Anniversary

By Expanding to Include Home Additions

SYKESVILLE, Maryland, Feb. 9, 2005 – Most people start in business hoping to work their way up. But not Don Katzenberger. He started on top – actually on the roof! – and has worked his way down, and around, and inside out . . . over the past 25 years making S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows one of the most successful and fastest growing leaders in the Maryland home improvement industry.

“Back in 1980, we set out to build S&K as a local a roofing company, and by all measures, we’ve been very successful,” said Mr. Katzenberger.

Now operating throughout most of Maryland, S&K (www.SKRoofing.com) completed more than 3,000 roofs in 2004, and provides a wide range of exterior home improvement services, including siding, windows, doors, gutters and downspouts, custom trim and wraps, and even decks.

“Now, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2005 S&K is experiencing a significant increase in clients wanting to add on to their homes instead of moving,” said Mr. Katzenberger. “To meet this demand, and to continue the rapid growth we’ve experienced over the last few years, S&K has now established a home addition department which provides all the services needed to design and build high quality additions.”

S&K Vice President and CFO Maija Kropp adds, “In today’s market, our customers tell us that they are very satisfied with the location of their homes and are savvy enough to know that they get more for their money by improving, not moving. Some want modern amenities such as home offices, home theaters, and workout rooms, while others want an extra bedrooms or family area. Whatever their needs, wherever they are, S&K is here to help,” she said.

Business Boom

Mr. Katzenberger said that the home improvement business “isn’t what it used to be . . . it’s changed for the better. Quality of work and reputation are everything,” he asserted. “Your reputation follows you everywhere. If you build a good reputation, you’re successful. And if your reputation isn’t so good, you’re either in court or out of business . . . or both.”

“Today,” he said, “home improvement businesses must have the ability to meet the demands of increasingly knowledgeable clients, they must be reputable, and clients must be able to find you when they need you. S&K is experiencing incredible growth as a result of creating a solid marketing and Internet presence, staying up to speed on the latest products and techniques in the industry, and leveraging the excellent reputation we’ve worked so hard to build over two and a half decades.”

“Working our way down from the roof to the entire house,” said Mr. Katzenberger, “has been the right plan for S&K to follow!”

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows “Adopts” a Soldier Through the My Soldier Program

— Owners Hopeful that Involvement Will Encourage Others —

SYKESVILLE, MD – December 20, 2004 – Several employees at S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (www.SKRoofing.com) spent much of the day on Friday, December 10, 2004, preparing packages for soldiers serving in Iraq as a part of the “My Soldier” program started at Manhattanville College (www.mville.edu/mysoldier).

S&K’s Vice President, Maija Kropp, learned about the program on Fox News, and immediately jumped on-line for more information. “The brave men and women in Iraq are in our thoughts each and every day. When we heard about the My Soldier program, we didn’t hesitate in finding out what was needed and getting it out,” said Kropp. “We wanted them to know how much we respect and admire their service to our country.” S&K hopes that by getting employees involved and by bringing the company’s participation to the community’s attention, they can encourage others to become involved in the program as well.

The My Soldier program was created by Manhattanville College student and active U.S. Army Sergeant Juan Salas. Salas, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Venezuela, served in Iraq, where he saw active combat duty and was commended for his part in saving the life of a child. For Salas, now back in the states and attending college classes, the program is a way to give something back to his fellow soldiers still fighting in Iraq. At the program’s launch, Salas spoke about his own experience in Iraq. “I was there for 14 months. It was long. But the thing that kept me going was getting letters – from kids, boy scouts, students. A letter was like a piece of gold. Something you will keep for the rest of your life.”

When signing up for the program, a soldier or group of soldiers is randomly selected by program coordinators. Information about the soldier(s) is sent to you, as well as a “starter kit” containing a red My Soldier bracelet to publicly show support for American troops, and guidelines for writing letters to deployed United States Armed Servicepersons.

Items collected by S&K for their adopted soldier included playing cards, DVD’s, toiletries, glow sticks, pens, paper and stamped envelopes, granola bars, socks, lip balm and other personal items. The team at S&K packed at total of 6 boxes, and wrote heart-felt letters to put in each one.
