Assurance Elevated - IKO Integrity Roofing Contractor Testimonial

Dale Faulkenberry, owner of Integrity Roofing & Contracting, operating in the Mobile and Baldwin County areas of the Gulf coast, provides a contractor testimonial for IKO. Dale discusses how violent thunderstorms, hurricanes and even tornadoes, have brought about changes in local roofing codes and standards to help homeowners waterproof their roof and allow it to be able to withstand extreme wind-loads. Integrity Roofing & Contracting has had to evolve with the changing roofing codes and standards, and has been relying on new roof waterproofing products introduced by IKO for all projects including low-slope roofs. One such products is IKO's GoldSeam deck seam tape which allows Dale's team to tape the seams and joints of the decking, as well as along the gap between the fascia and the roof deck. The Integrity Roofing team also uses IKO's EdgeSeal to help prevent wind uplift and blow-off along the eaves and rakes. The product adheres top and bottom, bonding with the drip-edge, ice and water membrane and the first course of shingles to create a unified barrier against extreme wind-loads. Dale has confidence that she can provide her customers a complete waterproof roof with the products offered by IKO.
