Eagle Hosts Inaugural Customer Open House at Sumterville, Florida Plant

At Eagle, it’s no secret that we are constantly looking for new ways to show our deep appreciation for our customers.

Earlier this month, we hosted our first open house event at our Sumterville, Florida manufacturing plant simply to say thank you to our valued customers and show our appreciation for their partnership and support. The fun-filled day featured raffle drawings, food trucks, educational classes and more.

The nearly 200 attendees participated in tours of the plant, product trainings, presentations, and installation demos from trusted vendors. During the event, we offered our CE course called Concrete Tile Roofing: The World’s Most Sustainable and Energy Efficient Roofing System, where eligible participants earned one AIA LU/Health Safety & Welfare (HSW) CE hour and one GBCI general hour. Also, over 60 new applicators were certified for Tile Bond by DOW at the event.

“Our Florida manufacturing facility is an impressive place that most of our customers have never seen,” said Hawk Kinney, Florida Senior Regional Sales Manager. “That’s no longer the case… A special ‘Thank You’ to the entire Eagle Team for making this event a success!”

We would like to specifically thank our trusted vendors: APOC, Bostik, DOW, East Coast Metals, and O’Hagin who participated in providing demonstrations and educational experiences for our customers, contributing to the success of our open house.

To all of our customers: Thank you! Thank you for the chance to serve you and thank you for the opportunity to provide you with the highest quality concrete tile roofs around. After 30 years in the roofing industry, our commitment is that we will continue to place a premium on building relationships with you while providing you with the best products and service on the market.

The Eagle Way: Three Core Components

When you envision your dream home, every detail matters. After 30 years in the roofing industry, we are proud to have helped countless customers create the homes they’ve always wanted. So, how have we achieved three decades of strides and success stories? Throughout our company’s journey, we’ve found there are three key components to our business: caring for the customer, empowering our employees, and producing superior products.

We’ve found that before we can help you create the home of your dreams, there must be trust. While providing quality roof tiles and expertise is what we do, fostering meaningful relationships with our customers is the lifeblood of our business – it’s the Eagle Way. We realize that trusting us with the literal roof over your head is no small thing, and we take that responsibility very seriously. It’s in our DNA to deliver our best on every single project, and we know that our customers’ trust in us comes not only from the product we deliver but from the relationships that we build. Ask any one of our customers, and they will tell you that the core of our business is not only our unwavering dedication to quality but also our lasting customer relationships.

While our approach may seem simple, it takes a top-to-bottom commitment from our staff to achieve. We understand that the best client relationships are built with employees who love their jobs. We are constantly investing in our team, supplying educational opportunities and technical training to guarantee top-notch industry knowledge and quality customer service. We take pride in being a company where people genuinely love coming to work. We know that empowering our team members and providing channels of opportunity, longevity and stability grants them the ability to better serve their clients who deserve our absolute best work. Our commitment is what enables them to build and maintain the trust of our customers, which is what ultimately defines us.

Of course, the equation doesn’t stop with our team members. At the end of the day, our quality roofs speak for themselves. As the number one manufacturer of concrete roof tiles in the nation, our dedication to our craft and products is second to none. With the largest selection of profiles and colors on the market, our customers are sure to find a roof to fit their property. Not only are our concrete tiles beautiful and sustainable, they’re also tested to the highest industry standards to ensure your family’s or your business’s safety. From fire to freeze-thaw, wind and hail, you can trust that our tiles are suited for any environment.

Since 1989, Eagle has produced superior roofing products for homes across America. With each tile and every satisfied customer, we’ve grown to better serve the next homeowner or business owner looking to elevate their space. Thank you for entrusting Eagle for 30 years, where customer service drives us and trust defines us.

2018 Meritage reNEWable Living Home Features an Eagle Concrete Tile Roof

With innovation and growth at the forefront of Eagle Roofing Products’ key objectives, it only made sense that the company take part in the Orlando, Florida 2018 Meritage reNEWable Living Home as an Alliance Sponsor. Designed with the end user in mind, this project will feature existing and proven state-of-the-art technologies in a more cost-effective manner, providing the homeowner cutting-edge features at a significantly reduced cost.

Among these advanced features is a modern-style Bel Air Dark Charcoal Eagle Roofing Products concrete tile roof. Not only is this roof environmentally friendly, durable enough to last the life of the structure and able to withstand the harshest of elements including wind gusts of up to 180mph, damage from hail stones up to 2” and is Class A fire resistant; it’s also energy efficient. In fact, the tile roof possesses inherent reflective properties that allows it to reflect sunlight and, instead of absorbing heat and transferring it down from the roof deck into the structure, releases the heat resulting in greater energy efficiency and cost savings.

The collaboration and vision of the 5,188-square foot two-story home is attributed to American home builder Meritage Homes and Hanley Wood’s BUILDER magazine. It was created to appeal to the growing demographic of the multigenerational buyer, allowing them to live more comfortably and at a lower cost. The home also features 7 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 4 garages, as well as full living quarters and multiple private entrances to accommodate all generations of a family living under one roof. 

The 2018 Meritage reNEWable Living Home will be unveiled next week in conjunction with the 2018 National Association of Home Builders International Builders’ Show® taking place in Orlando, Florida. To be one of the first to visit the reNEWable Living Home, RSVP today!
