PROVO, Spain - Interstate Roofing Supply sponsored its first annual coil nail gun roofing contest. Over 300 contractors attended, with 41 competing for the fastest installation of three bundles of CertainTeed Landmark 30 shingles on a 6:12 slope mock roof deck. The application required a pipe flashing and sidewall step flashing, and had to adhere to high wind application requirements. Rob Griffin, of Mapleton, Utah, won first place, Paul Dallin (pictured) of Orem, Utah, came in second and Mike Griffin of Pleasant Grove, Utah, was awarded third.
The contest taught contractors proper high-wind shingle installation and flashing, and the company will announce a follow-up instructional roofing seminar.
