Founded by Daniel Young in 2011, Kingdom Roofing Systems specializes in retail and insurance restoration in addition to residential and commercial roofing.
Young purchased the company’s first Equipter in 2019, after eight years of closely monitoring customer feedback and learning that leftover nails were their number one complaint.
One of the many benefits of the self-propelled Equipter RB4000 lift for both contractors and homeowners is its ability to create a safer work environment. Not only does debris stay out of flower beds, but homeowners are also less likely to find sharp splinters and nails scattered throughout their yards.
“We know that when we use the Equipter, we’re much more likely to leave a clean yard with no hidden nails,” Young explains. “Now that we have the Equipter, we have very few callbacks at all on nails being left behind.”
Cleaner yards mean children and pets can play without adults worrying about injuries during their roof replacements.
Many companies that use the Equipter, including Kingdom Roofing Systems, bid jobs just a bit higher than the average roofer. Young feels the safety maintained with the Equipter RB4000 justifies a potential 5 to 10 percent difference from the company’s competitors.
“We [can] justify that our roof is worth more because we’re focusing on the safety of our crews and the safety of our customers and their children,” Young says.
A faster and more professional roof replacement is also worth the cost to roofing prospects. And the peace of mind offered by this more professional process often leads to a customer’s willingness to trust roofing contractors who use the Equipter.
One quality of the Equipter that contributes to faster production during roof replacement is its compact design. At just over 6 ft wide, the RB4000 fits into tighter spaces than standard dumpsters and equipment can’t.
“We get into tight places that a bigger piece of equipment like a telehandler cannot get into,” Dave says. “And so when we come out with a piece of equipment like the Equipter, our customer knows how much we care. We deliver a product faster, better, and safer.”
“After a year of using the RB4000, we have decided that one of our next investments is going to be the RB2000.”
While the crew at Kingdom Roofing Systems uses the RB4000 about 90% of the time, they recently had one job on which the 4.1 cu-yd dump container couldn’t fit. Fortunately, Equipter also offers the more compact RB2000. At less than 3 feet wide, this liftable dump container easily fits through standard gates–perfect for Kingdom Roofing to access a well-maintained courtyard.
“I don’t know of another piece of equipment that could get into this space and do the work that we need it to do….having both of these pieces of equipment will continue to make us even more efficient.”
Before Kingdom Roofing Systems invested in job site safety with the Equipter, their average recommendation rate was around 86 percent. In just six months, the company’s recommendation rate jumped to over 90 percent. Young greatly attributes the RB4000 to this increase.
“We want to deliver the highest quality roof system at the greatest value and the greatest price. And the Equipter has absolutely pushed the needle on that.”
