— 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.
