Versatex hits the road

Versatex will hit the road next month with a comprehensive showcase of PVC installation tips and hands-on workshops.

The Versatex Road Show will begin a tour of Southeast, including March 9 and 10 stops in Durham and Goldsboro, N.C. and a March 11 visit to Irmo, S.C.

Between this spring and the fall, nationally recognized builder Bobby Parks will bring a training center on wheels to about 100 dealer locations. Parks will conduct informal, informative demonstrations, specially designed for industry professionals, at every stop.

“In the course of about 20 weeks, we’ll roll through 27 states east of the Mississippi, ” Parks said “You’ll have a chance to see the latest Versatex products, pick up inspiration and best practices, and get to know some Versatex team members and dealers, too.”

Parks is a nationally known deck, porch, patio and remodeling contractor with more than 30 years experience. He's completed residential and commercial projects valued at more than $40 million, regularly presents building and business courses, speaks at remodeling shows, and contributes widely to trade publications. Long closely associated with Versatex, Parks has spearheaded the Road Show since 2015.

“This year the Road Show provides more value and covers more ground than ever,” said Rick Kapres, Versatex vice president of sales. “It's a whole lot more than just than a guy with a card table; you'll see real techniques, tools, products and experts. You can learn a lot just by walking through the instructional exhibits in our roomy new trailer.”
