RT3 Member Cognitive Contractor Launches Data-Driven Customer Acquisition Solution for Contractors

The company delivers industry-specific sales & marketing technologies backed by the science of data.


Cognitive Contractor, a pioneer in the application of data-driven customer acquisition solutions to the contractor industry, formally launched its end-to-end sales and marketing solution to the roofing and solar sectors.

Developed by roofing, construction, and technology entrepreneur Josey Parks, this purpose-built solution helps companies prioritize their sales and marketing efforts to focus on the leads that are most likely to become customers.
“Our technology can accurately predict your next sale,” explained Parks. “Now, sales teams are equipped with the knowledge they need to ensure they are knocking on the right doors and not wasting valuable sales hours or marketing dollars on people who will never convert. We also back their sales efforts with multi-channel marketing campaigns that pre-set appointments, so sales reps just have to show up and close. And every campaign is tracked, reviewed, and refined, to continually improve results.”

Cognitive Contractor uses data analytics to build profiles of a contractor’s ideal core customer. Their AI-based technology uses this information to analyze the market and predict which leads are most likely to buy. Leads can also be filtered based on their highest potential value or lifetime value to hit specific revenue goals. When combined with the company’s highly targeted and personalized multi-channel marketing campaigns, contractors report closing rates that increase by double digits.

The company’s analytical approach to data-driven lead generation and engagement produces powerful sales numbers for contractors who use the solution, including Parks’ own companies. “Data is powerful. When you analyze your customer base, you can identify common attributes among your best performing customers. Then, you can use that customer profile to identify similar targets in your market,” Parks explained. “Cognitive Contractor is far more advanced and deliberate than traditional lead generation services, where sales teams scramble to respond first—even when a lead doesn’t fit the company’s ideal customer profile. We are leveraging technology to help contractors be more strategic and successful in their prospecting efforts.”

Steve Soule of CMR Construction & Roofing said, “Cognitive Contractor has completely changed the trajectory of my company. They have transformed our entire approach to customer acquisition to be targeted and refined. Data-based insights from Cognitive have charted our course, and their continuous guidance has brought us even further than I could have imagined.”

Roofing industry seeing material prices rising

By Heidi J. Ellsworth, RCS Partner. 

Prices are expected to continue to rise through 2021. 

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the U.S. in spring of 2020, the roofing industry had to adapt and adjust their business operations. As manufacturers were forced to slow or stop production and shipping became a challenge, contractors found it harder to get much-needed materials. Now, roofing companies are experiencing price increases for all types of building and roofing products.   

The lumber industry continues to see price increases and according to the National Home Builders Association, “Lumber prices increased 14.9% in August, marking the largest four-month gain since such data was first recorded in 1949 and the second-largest gain since seasonally adjusted data became available in 1975.” 

Shingle allocations and price increases have also been prevalent throughout 2020 due to high levels of storm-related re-roofing and limited raw materials. According to a roofing contractor’s website, “This week a roofing manufacturer put out a 4-6% price increase effective August 17 which follows two other shingle manufacturers with 2-7% increases and a fourth manufacturer following with their increase.” 

A key component used by most manufacturers is asphalt which is seeing its own price increases. According to Bud Polston of United Asphalts, there are widespread price increases with asphalt due to how it is processed. The demand for gasoline has been uneven in 2020 and jet fuel has seen a huge decrease in demand. According to Deloitte Insights, “Demand for gasoline has risen as more cars have returned to the road and as shops, retail stores and restaurants have reopened. However, demand for jet fuel has remained anemic, with U.S. demand still half of its pre–COVID-19 levels, as many people defer air travel.” 

The lack of demand for jet fuel has a trickledown effect on the amount and cost of producing/refining asphalt. According to information gained by United Asphalts from a refinery source, “Covid related lockdowns nationwide are impacting primarily gasoline and jet fuel (both lower demand and lower pricing). Most refineries cannot make asphalt and resid (oil products that remain after petroleum has been distilled) without also making gasoline and jet fuel and it appears that black oil production across the U.S. has decreased as a result. This is leading to higher market prices for resid and asphalt on account of the decreased production and to incentivize more production. Although the market price has increased, it is still not high enough to offset our incremental production costs of asphalt and resid.” 

This is not something that roofing manufacturers are pleased about but it is a fact that there will be price increases and roofing contractors should be aware. The Associated Builders and Contractors Chief Economist, Anirban Basu stated in a recent press release, “This dynamic (of building material price increases) is already observable, for example, in the prices of softwood lumber. As America’s single-family housing construction boom continues, many builders are ordering softwood lumber. With suppliers collectively lacking the near-term capacity to easily fill these orders, prices were spiking for much of 2020. Similar conditions may influence other commodities later this year as global growth accelerates. This means that contractors need to think long and hard about the existence and structure of escalation clauses as they negotiate future work.” 

In November and December of 2020, United Asphalts was hit with significant increases to the price of raw materials. They recently announced, “We are forced to increase our prices by an average of 10% in all markets for many reasons, including the ongoing ripple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

So, although many manufacturers must pass on price increases, they are more committed than ever to extreme customer service. “We are working with all of our customers for long-term forecasting our roofing asphalts so they can bid and complete jobs profitably,” stated Polston. 

And this is being found in the metal industry too. Roof Hugger recently announced, “As most of you are aware, several costs increase in steel have been announced in addition to some constriction in material availability. Roof Hugger, like many other fabricators, has found it necessary to pass along a portion of these material increases. We have done our best to minimize the increase and we are carefully monitoring our inventory levels.”  

They continue, “Please take note that with the uncertainty of steel costs, pricing will be good for a period of 14 days from the quote date and subject to review, thereafter, please qualify your proposals to reflect these limits. Roof Hugger is still committed to providing the best customer service and product quality as we have always been known.” 

Now more than ever a strong relationship with your manufacturers and distributors is essential. Good communication on upcoming material shortages, allocations or price increases is crucial to roofing contractor’s business.  

Vinyl Sustainability Council Presents Vinyl Recycling Award to RT3 Member Sika Sarnafil and The AZEK Company

The Vinyl Recycling Award recognizes efforts of recyclers and product manufacturers with operations in the U.S. that find new solutions and/or markets for reclaimed PVC materials, increase use of recycled content in their products, and/or engage in partnerships with companies in take-back programs.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), a self-funded business council advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry, presented the 2020 Vinyl Recycling Award at its annual meeting to The AZEK Company, of Chicago, Illinois and Sika Sarnafil, of Canton, Massachusetts.

“The need for more sustainable practices continues to grow, and vinyl value chain members are committing every day to increasing their use of recycled materials,” said Jay Thomas, VSC Executive Director. “This year, I was impressed with how many award entries demonstrated increased use of post-consumer recycled vinyl, including AZEK and Sika. But what truly made these companies stand out in their nominations was how they demonstrated that using recycled materials is at the core of how they do business. I am extremely pleased to be able to recognize both of these companies with our 2020 Vinyl Recycling Award.”

The Vinyl Recycling Award recognizes efforts of recyclers and product manufacturers with operations in the U.S. that find new solutions and/or markets for reclaimed PVC materials, increase use of recycled content in their products, and/or engage in partnerships with companies in take-back programs.

AZEK’s TimberTech® Initiative
The AZEK Company is a leading building product manufacturer with a premier line of capped PVC deck boards, known as the TimberTech AZEK decking product line. Aligned with the company’s mission of offering customers beautiful, low maintenance building products, while converting the industry to a more sustainable future, AZEK undertook the challenge of increasing usage of recycled materials in manufacturing this product.

By working closely with their research and development team and recycled PVC suppliers, and in partnership with subsidiary Return Polymers, AZEK was able to increase the recycled material composition of total board weight from 30 percent to 63 percent recycled content, with 47 percent sourced from external post-industrial and post-consumer materials.

This year, AZEK expects to divert more than 300 million pounds of waste from landfill, exceeding their 2019 landfill diversion.

“We greatly appreciate this recognition from the VSC as we continue our mission to convert the building products industry from its uninspiring past to a dynamic and sustainable future,” said Bruce Stanhope, Ph.D., AZEK’s Vice President of Research & Development. “To accomplish this, it takes reimagining current products to find ways to make them better. As we all know, sustainability is a journey, and we will continue to push the boundaries of our recycling capabilities and innovations.”

Sika Sarnafil’s Rogers Centre Project
Sika Sarnafil is a prominent roofing manufacturer, with a commitment to post-consumer roof recycling. Its Sarnafil and Sikaplan single-ply roofing products contain a UL-certified 10 percent recycled content.

Sika Sarnafil was called upon when the Rogers Centre, in Toronto, needed a roof repair. The stadium featured a 30-year old Sarnafil PVC roof that was still performing well, but the building suffered structural damage from massive chunks of ice falling from neighboring office towers.

“Our ability to recycle the existing PVC roof was one of the key drivers in the building owner’s decisions to replace it,” said Bill Bellico, Sika Sarnafil Director of Marketing & Inside Sales. “And we were able to completely recycle the 460,000-square-foot roof membrane and put it back into new Sika roofing products. It is satisfying to see our 30-year-old Sarnafil roof come full circle and get a new life as a roof membrane that will protect another building. Thank you to the VSC for recognizing this project as an award winner.”

The new PVC roof installed also contained a UL-certified 10 percent recycled content and should help protect the stadium for more than 30 years.

“Sika Sarnafil’s story speaks to the durability and resilience of PVC, which in itself epitomizes sustainability,” Thomas said. “Having a roof that continues to perform over decades and in extreme temperatures is notable, and their submission highlights that recycled content is long-lasting and can be used in such applications.”

Photo shows the original Sika Sarnafil roof that was first installed in 1989. This roof was fully recycled when the new system was installed.


About the Vinyl Sustainability Council
The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), founded in 2016 in partnership with the Vinyl Institute, is a council created to advance the vinyl industry’s efforts in addressing sustainability. The VSC is a collaborative platform for companies, organizations and other industry stakeholders to come together to create a sustainable development path for the industry.

Roofing Technology Think Tank Announces 2020 Innovator of the Year

The award recognizes a roofing contractor who contributes to the advancement of the roofing industry.

York, Pennsylvania, December 8, 2020 –- Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3), a group of progressive roofing professionals focused on technology solutions for the roofing industry, awarded the 2020 Innovator of the Year award to Scott Riopelle, the owner and CEO of Denver, Colorado-based Interstate Roofing. The award was announced during the virtual 2020 Best of Success Conference.

“It’s clear that Scott is an early adopter and eager to integrate the latest technologies into Interstate Roofing,” stated Anna Anderson, CEO of Art Unlimited, Award Task Team Leader and RT3 Board Member. “To eliminate any chance of bias, our panel of judges did not know the names of the persons or companies that they were reviewing. They ranked nominations based solely on the technological information provided on the nomination form.”

According to the nomination, Scott was one of the first contractors to adopt using EagleView measurement reports as a standard in his business, as well as Xactimate and Scope Assist. “Technology is the new future in the roofing industry,” stated Scott. “By providing aerial and mobile access in seconds it is going to save time and be more cost effective for the jobs. I will never forget the first time I saw Xactimate. I was blown away by how far we have come in the last decade.”

Scott shared that Interstate Roofing has begun using virtual reality and augmented reality in their business. “This technology speaks to the new generation of contracting salespersons. It has increased our retention base by allowing multiple avenues of education, while providing another way to evaluate the skills of a contractor before we finalize a contractor agreement or put them in the field blindly. What this caused is a more loyal base of employee and contractor alike,” he explained.

He also is willing to share knowledge and help others in the industry, often presenting and educating other contractors, even competitors on how to implement technology into their businesses. “Due to the pandemic we have been forced to look at digital technology from a different perspective. I see the challenge and accept it as a good thing. It is not always about growing more jobs but defining the good jobs from the bad ones and keeping the crews safe,” he said.   

Interstate Roofing is a member of the Colorado Roofing Association, National Roofing Contractors Association and Scott serves on the board for the Western States Roofing Contractors Association. Interstate Roofing is rated in the highest tier with manufacturers such as Owens Corning, Versico, Boral Steel, GAF and CertainTeed.
