The Right Hand Tool for the Right Job

Technology and automation is great but sometime so is a good, old-fashioned hand tool.

By Heidi J. Ellsworth.

We all know how important having the proper tools is to complete a quality job quickly.  In today’s world, too often we are looking at technology to provide the needed tools.  But it is important to remember that it is a balance between the world of technology and old-world craftsmanship.

In roofing, it is still about the craft.  We are an industry of men and women who take immense pride in a job well done.  Standing back and looking at a new roof, well, it is a thing of beauty.  At the Coffee Shop, we are incredibly proud of our roofers and the industry that makes beautiful new roofs possible.

We also enjoy sharing some of the more interesting parts of this industry.  One such company that we would like to spotlight is Wil-Mar Products.  It was founded by a roofing contractor, W. R. “Bill” Merrin in 1990.  He saw a need in the industry to seal the vent pipe to a roof flashing and eliminate mastic and taping. His first product, The Pipe Collar, was invented and patented.

Today Wil-Mar Products is led by Bill’s wife, Marianne Sumter and they have been a loyal advertiser with RCS for years.  We would like to highlight another invention from Wil-Mar, The Roofers’ Saw, that was co-designed by Bill and Michael Steele.

This saw is used for removing broken shakes, shingles and slate. It cuts off the fasteners quickly without damage to adjacent material.  It is the perfect tool to keep in your tool belt to cut nails and staples fast with a pull stroke and it is self-feeding.  With this beauty in your tool belt you can increase productivity on repairs and re-roofing, saving you and your crew time and money.

The hand saw consists of a 25″ wood handle and a 27″ removable and replaceable saw blade.  It is a simple tool that makes the job easier.  Isn’t that what it is all about.  At the Coffee Shop, we love bringing you these cool tools.  Thank you Wil-Mar Products!
