Members of the community gathered on Friday to welcome Shep’s Commercial Roofing to Helper. Newly crowned Miss Carbon County Celeste Smith along with members of the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce were in attendance to welcome Chris Shepardson’s new business.
Shepardson, the owner of Shep’s Windows and Doors, has been working in Carbon County since 1993 installing windows and doors in homes and businesses in the community. Now, he has become the only certified roofing applicator in Utah and Nevada for GSM Iron Centry Coatings and has acquired the exclusive distribution rights for their roofing products.
Shepardson believes he can help all business owners, both large and small, to save tens of thousands of dollars by using this unique roof coating system when needing to replace their roof and stop leaks completely. Besides avoiding the replacing of an older commercial roof, Iron Sentry Coatings has been laboratory tested to have a solar reflectivity rating of up to 87% for extraordinary energy savings over other traditional roofing applications. Shepardson is prepared to coat over tar roofs, comp roofs, old vinyl sheet roofs and all kinds of metal roofs, even rusty roofs.
By next year, Shepardson plans to dedicate an investment of several million dollars to open another warehouse and roof coating supply company in Las Vegas. With a home office in Helper, Shepardson believes his hometown will benefit greatly through the new Shep’s Commercial Roofing, LLC.
Shep’s Windows and Doors as well as Shep’s Commercial Roofing can be contacted at (435) 472-1552. The business is located at 435 North Main Street in Helper.
