ROUND ROCK, Texas — The United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors (UASRC) has announced that Owens Corning is now a premium associate member.

“Owens Corning from the very beginning has been a leader in their support for the UASRC. Matt Lawver (Contractor Services Leader) is a very active and passionate member of our advisory board. It only makes sense that OC would be the first manufacturer to offer their financial support,” said UASRC Executive Director Jacob Sachs.

The mission of the UASRC is to promote the highest ethical standards in the catastrophe restoration industry. This would not be possible without the support of its associate members.

Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt LLC is pleased to announce our premium associate membership level with the UASRC,” said Bill Mabry, customer programs leader, Owens Corning. “We are proud to support this organization and the positive efforts they contribute to the storm restoration industry.”

When asked what the motivation of the recent decision, Rich Spanton, chairman and founding member of the UASRC said, “Many of our members purchase shingles and supplies from OC, and we have several OC Platinum Contractors that are members of the UASRC. We are excited to have OC as part of our advisory board and now as a premium associate member. It shows their level of commitment to the UASRC and our mission.”

“It’s exciting to see OC as the first manufacturer to make a financial commitment to the UASRC,” said Bill Combes, director of marketing and membership. "They have always been a leader, and this is just another example of their willingness to go the extra mile to make things better for an industry that is in desperate need for positive change.”

Companies that are interested in participating in the UASRC Associate Member Program can contact the UASRC at 888-988-2772 or Associate member companies would consist of companies that support the storm restoration industry, such as roofing, gutter and siding manufacturers, roofing suppliers, aerial measurements and storm and hail reporting companies.
