Academy Roofing is a local roofing contractor based in Aurora, Colorado. They have built a reputation over their nearly forty-year history as one of the premier roofing companies in the state. And they love students from Pickens Technical College’s Construction Technology and Property Maintenance programs.
Both the Construction Technology and Property Maintenance programs at PTC prepare students to work on properties in various ways. Construction Technology is taught by Greg Shamburg, who has spent the last twenty-nine years teaching at PTC. After learning in Shamburg’s classroom and by working on real projects, many students become cost estimators, building inspectors, construction managers, and specialized tradesmen and women. Students can earn both their Construction Technology Certificate and their Advanced Methods Certificate in construction after completing their course in Construction Technology.
PTC’s Property Maintenance program gives students the entry-level skills to perform inspections, complete preventative maintenance, and complete repairs on residential and commercial properties. After completing their Property Maintenance course, students can earn a Property Maintenance Certificate, which they can use to find a job in the construction or maintenance fields.
Academy Roofing looks for skilled workers in the construction field to give their community the best possible service in the roofing industry. In the state of Colorado, having a sturdy roof you can rely on is essential. For both residential and commercial customers across the state, Academy Roofing is there to help choose the right plan for their needs and budget.
According to Academy Roofing, “Your home is your castle. You want to make sure it’s not only up to code but will last for as long as you own your home. In addition to new roof replacement and repairs, we offer a wide selection of products…”
These products include gutter installation and cleaning services, insulation installation for roofs, walkable deck systems, and more. This wide range of services and products demands professionals familiar with working on these kinds of projects. Students in PTC’s Property Maintenance and Construction Technology programs come out well-equipped to handle these projects and more.
Many of Academy Roofing’s customers are businesses throughout the state. Academy needs workers who can work with asphalt roofs, tile roofs, metal and fabricated metal roofs, metal wall panels, and more. Academy knows it can rely on students from PTC because they come from their Construction Technology and Property Maintenance courses with a well-established background in working with all of these materials.
An important part of any construction or maintenance job, especially with a local company, is customer service and communication. PTC students learn how to provide inspections and cost estimates while providing customers with their best, most cost-effective options. Working alongside other students and with the instructor builds teamwork and communication skills that go a long way in any construction job, especially roofing jobs with Academy Roofing.
Academy Roofing is one of the many local businesses lining up to hire PTC students. They know that PTC students come with experience and skill, and they are happy to help local workers find local jobs.
