Benjamin Obdyke Incorporated, a leading provider of roof and wall products to the residential and commercial construction markets, is pleased to announce its participation in the 2015 Katz Roadshow. Designed to educate construction professionals about new products, installation techniques and building practices, the Katz Roadshow will visit 24 locations during the 2015 tour.
As part of the day-long clinics, master craftsmen Gary Katz and Mike Sloggatt will walk participants through a series of demonstrations. The Roadshow crew will address moisture management by detailing best practice installation techniques, including the use of products such as Benjamin Obdyke’s Slicker® Classic Rainscreen with Huber’s ZIP System pre-weatherized sheathing product. A number of other construction practices and concerns will be discussed, including framing, finishing and product durability.
Billed as “a unique, strategic partnership of leading manufacturers and installation specialists,” the yearlong lumberyard tour will crisscross the U.S. and make stops in 17 states. The show’s namesake, Katz, has devoted a lifetime to expanding the importance of proper craftsmanship. A frequent contributor to a number of popular trade magazines, Katz has authored three books and a DVD series. A 30-year veteran of the construction industry, Sloggatt is a regular seminar presenter at industry tradeshows as well as a frequent attendee at association meetings of regional builder and material groups and lumberyards.
“The Katz Roadshow is dedicated to educating the industry about installation and product best practices,” said Tara Murray, Marketing Manager for Benjamin Obdyke. “We are proud to have the opportunity to help improve the quality of workmanship in our industry.”
