Elite Exteriors is led by a team of consummate professionals that operate under many of the same leadership principles our founders learned from their history of service to our nation:
Persistency paid off for Kohler with the Harbour Point project. To get the homeowner association to change their rules and allow DaVinci products on the list of allowable roofing materials, he had to meet with each individual homeowner in the community. Only a unanimous vote could change the covenants.
Once that vote was achieved, Russell Morris was the first homeowner to gain a new DaVinci Select Shake roof. Hail damage ruined his 19-year-old pine shake roof. He was more than ready for a new, hassle-free composite roof.
“Working with Elite Exteriors was very easy,” says Morris. “They did 99% of the legwork with my insurance company and the bank engineering inspectors. Originally the insurance company only wanted to repair the roof. Elite Exteriors showed them that the roof could not be repaired without causing more damage. They showed them why and how the roof had to be replaced. Overall, the team was very professional, considerate and highly efficient.”
Within a matter of weeks Morris had his new Aged Cedar colored roof overhead. “Three homes on my street have used the same product,” says Morris. “All of them have definitely improved the curb appeal of the street.”
According to Morris, the aesthetic appeal and functional practicality are great benefits of the new synthetic shake roof. After that, as icing on the cake, he believes the new DaVinci roof has increased the overall value of his home by about 10%.
Elite Exteriors is a veteran-owned company with locations in Atlanta, GA and Greenville, SC. The company provides residential and commercial roofing throughout the southeast. Kohler shared some insights about his career and bringing composites into his roofing mix to increase sales.
Q: How did you get started in the roofing business?
A: I was actually an insurance adjuster. I saw the opportunity to help homeowners from a roofing and construction standpoint and made the switch to roofing.
Q: What makes your company recommend DaVinci products over competitive composite products?
A: DaVinci has been the leader of synthetic shake and slate year after year. The product has stood the test of time. The support from the manufacturer is great, and the appearance of the final product really sells itself.
Q: How have DaVinci products helped increase sales for your company?
A: Offering DaVinci has helped us add an additional 7 figures to our bottom line at the end of the year. It really helps distinguish us from the competition. It’s taken our company to the next level.
Q: When selling DaVinci products to a new customer, what are the features and benefits that customers react best to?
A: Maintenance free, Class 4 impact rating, Class A fire rating, lifetime limited warranty, shake without the hassle. They also like that if they present these features to their insurance company --- especially the Class 4 and Class A ratings --- that there’s a high chance of lowering their insurance premiums.
Q: What’s your dream roofing job?
A: Graceland. How cool would it be to say you got to re-roof Elvis’ house?
Q: Finally, if you absolutely had to change professions tomorrow, what do you think you’d do?
A: No doubt … I’d go back to being a United States Marine!
The integrity of your roof is integral to the overall integrity of your home. While Elite Exteriors can tackle a wide variety of roofing projects to extend the life of your home, our company specializes in specialty roofing systems, such as cedar shake, slate, and synthetic roofing materials from DaVinci Roofscapes. Our innate understanding of insurance policies and how the insurance industry works makes us the ideal partner for homeowners in need of a roofing replacement or repair. In addition to improving the integrity of your roof, a specialty roofing system can significantly boost your home’s value, curb appeal and longevity. Rapidly rising in popularity, composite roofing systems in shake or slate are specially engineered to look natural while being lightweight, resisting impact, maintaining their color and being fire-resistant to last for decades longer than a traditional roof. Over time, they can save homeowners significant money on maintenance and replacement costs.
From office buildings and manufacturing facilities to retail strip centers and apartment complexes, Elite Exteriors brings our roofing and insurance expertise to the commercial industry. If a repair is all that is required to maintain your roof’s integrity, an exceptionally durable commercial roof coating may be the ideal solution. If we believe a simple repair won’t do, we’ll be happy to communicate that fact with your insurance company. During the roofing replacement, we’ll do our level best to ensure there’s no disruption to your business day, while protecting the underlying structures and interior of your business.
