World renowned Olympic gymnast Mary-Lou Retton likes to tell her motivational program audiences how her famed Olympic coach Bela Karoli, used to literally brainwash his talented performers with an acronym he would recite regularly: Together Everyone Achieves More. Delmarva Roofing & Coating, Inc co-owners Sheldon Swartzentruber and Verle Schlabach might not have made Karoli’s Olympic Gymnast Team, but they are certainly living proof of the Together Everyone Achieves More way of thinking. The two boys grew up across the fields from one another—Verle’s family with a hog farm and Sheldon’s family with a dairy farm, and experienced both their fathers using Conklin products (circa 1976, before Conklin formalized their Roofing Systems business). They attended school together, and dabbled in various construction projects, both on their farms and off, before settling–independently—on becoming roofing specialists. Because they both had the practical skills, and trusted one another, they would often work together on one another’s roofing jobs. These exposures set the foundation for a lifelong friendship built on teamwork, and a successful business partnership built on friendship, trust and mutual respect.

What we do

In 1995, Sheldon and Verle introduced DURADEK® to their product/service lineup and now devote a considerable portion of their business to supporting their full-time crews that install this superior high-style decking protective product to (both new construction and renovated) small residential and large industrial and corporate outdoor living areas. “We are different from the typical roofing business where roofers go out into the market, find a different product for each job, scramble together some training on how to use and apply the product, and then install it,” says Sheldon. “We start with the best. We’re trained to use and install these superior Conklin products. We can answer any customer questions about them, and are happy to provide fully transparent information on product features and benefits,” adds Verle.
