More Contractors Buying Online

Roof Saver More Buying Online
December 13, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

By Lauren White, RCS Reporter.

Online shopping is changing the way that contractors get ready for the busy spring roofing season.  

In the digital age, contractors are turning towards online sales more.  A study done by The Farnsworth Group found that 95% of professionals, “...purchase building products online or research building products online...with 78% [of professionals] doing so at least once a month.”  Companies are noticing the increasing demand from contractors to be able to purchase materials online.

One such company, Blocksom & Co., the manufacturer of Roof Saver ridge vent, teamed up with BuyMBS.com to offer contractors the option to easily buy online and is offering free shipping.  This environmentally friendly product provides contractors with a cost-effective solution for steep slope ventilation. Buy a pallet of Roof Saver to keep in your warehouse so you’re prepared at all times.  When you buy it online it ships to you for free, making it a convenient purchase.

Andy Swan, President of Blocksom & Co., wanted to make Roof Saver ridge vent available anywhere and everywhere.  He started working with Modern Builders Supply (MBS) out of Ohio.  His products were stocked in their stores, but when he saw that they added an ecommerce site that anyone could buy from, he knew that’s what he needed to get Roof Saver available nationally.  “Our product is perfect for this platform,” continued Swan.  “The product is light and easy to ship.  We found that MBS was able to ship by the box or by the pallet, solving a longtime problem for our contractors.  They can get Roof Saver direct to the job in the exact amount needed or delivered by the pallet to the warehouse.  It is making a big difference.”

When installed properly, Roof Saver ridge vent, acts as the intake for an attic ventilation system.  Every day a family of four produces two to four gallons of water vapor from cooking, bathing, and laundry inside the home.  That’s 14-28 gallons of water vapor per week. To avoid trapping that moisture and causing mold and mildew growth, ventilation is a necessity.

“Roof Saver ridge vent is a flexible material that is intended to be installed in conjunction with eave, cornice, or soffit vents,” as explained in the Roof Saver ridge vent eBook.  The combination of these two types of vents allows for natural ventilation to occur in enclosed attics and rafter spaces.  Since Roof Saver is installed under roof shingles, it’s a more visually appealing venting option compared to pot vents and fans.

“Roof Saver is a cost-effective solution for ridge ventilstion and when it comes to roofing, price is important,” stated Dan Lieske, E-Commerce Manager for BuyMBS.com.  “We focus on getting the best pricing for our customers and Roof Saver is a great solution. We can ship a pallet directly to a commercial or residential property. Shipping is free, making it the most cost-effective solution out there.  We can ship it by the box or by the pallet, with the contractor seeing substantial savings when buying by the pallet.”
