Roof Project of the Year: JBK, Inc. Roofing Division

Project: Lynn Camp Elementary School

Roof leaks had started to interfere with the daily activities of Lynn Camp Elementary School in Corbin, Kentucky; administrators knew it was time for a new roof. To maintain the building’s current design and blue color, Brandon Keck JBK’s President, presented a metal retrofit option using the Duro-Fleece® membrane with the Duro-Last Vinyl Rib system – more than 52,000 linear feet of rib was installed. By utilizing this system the project was completed in only 90 days, several months sooner than a new metal roof would have taken.

JBK, Inc. was also as presented the “Platinum Contractor Award” by Mitch Guettler, Duro-Last’s Quality Assurance & Warranty Services Manager. This is the highest quality distinction given to contractors from Duro-Last and has placed JBK, Inc. in the top 3% of Duro-Last contractors consistently installing the highest quality roofing systems in 2016.

In achieving Platinum Contractor status, JBK had met the following qualification criteria:

  • Install a minimum of five commercial jobs within the calendar year
  • Total combined square footage minimum of over 500,000
  • All projects must be inspected, graded, and warranted by a Duro-Last Quality Assurance Tech Rep with a score of 95 or above out of 100.

These inspected roof installations scored in the ‘outstanding’ category.  In other words, JBK has worked its way to be the “best of the best” through commitment to quality, dedication to detail, and hard work!
