For many years, the polymer coatings and sufacing industry has needed an organization structured to raise the standards of the industry by bringing together manufacturers, architects, engineers and contractors first to set quality standards and secondly, to bring about the training necessary to implement higher standards. Those who design and specify understand that it does make a difference what materials are used and who does the application. Architects must have a high degree of confidence in the product and the applicator of that product to insure that the desired end result is achieved. Manufacturers must understand that the times and the industry demand higher quality standards and they must insure that those who install their products operate at the elevated level. Roofing Contractors must have the skills required to achieve higher quality workmanship and there must be an ongoing means by which craftsmen can keep pace with design and product. PCSI offers this.
