FleeceBACK Champion award to Academy Roofing and Sheet Metal

Carlisle SynTec along with Luna & Associates presented the FleeceBACK Champion award to Academy Roofing and Sheet Metal of Des Moines, IA. Academy Roofing & Sheet Metal won the award for being the contractor who installed the most FleeceBACK membrane in the United States.

Brian Krumm and Nick Parenza are the owners of Academy Roofing and Sheet Metal. They were both on hand to pick up their FleeceBACK Champion belt. Rob Mulaney and Matt Weatherly with Luna & Associates presented the award.

Brian and Nick chose to use FleeceBACK 145 EPDM, which is classified as an ultra-performance style membrane and is the thickest single ply membrane manufactured. This FleeceBACK membrane selection enabled their customers to get a high-performance roofing system with a lower installed cost compared to standard membrane and coverboards systems typically offered. Along with the cost savings, Brian and Nick provided their building owners coverage for 4″ hail, 32-man hours of accidental puncture repairs, and an 80 mph wind speed warranty that are not available with non-fleece membranes.

Congratulations to Academy Roofing and Sheet Metal, the one and only reigning US FleeceBACK Champion!

Denise Shibley and Rob Mulaney, also owners of Luna & Associates, will continue to lead the company to great things along with Matt Weatherly and Greg Luna.

Here’s a little introduction about Matt. Congratulations Matt! You will do powerful things!!!

Matthew Weatherly began his roofing career in 2001 with Right Roofing in Des Moines, Iowa, as a residential roof laborer and shingle applicator.

In 2005, he transitioned into the commercial roofing industry working as a service technician for Wood Roofing Company in Des Moines. While pioneering the roofing industry, Weatherly simultaneously excelled as a student-athlete at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. In 2010,

Weatherly graduated with a degree in Biblical Counseling, but moved deeper into the realm of roofing when Wood Roofing Co. promoted him to a project management/sales position. As such, he managed production roofing projects, sheet metal projects, and sold repair work for Wood Roofing’s service division.

In April 2011, he surged into outside sales with ABC Supply, where his focus centered on selling residential and commercial roofing products to contractors in Des Moines and surrounding markets. Within a year, he had reached the top of the ranks, becoming the #1 sales representative at the ABC Supply in Des Moines location in sales volume and gross profit. Then, in the spring of 2013, he became the youngest member on the Luna and Associates team, managing commercial roofing sales in the state of Nebraska.

During Weatherly’s time as an associate, Carlisle Syntec sales grew in the state of Nebraska consistently year over year. This growth was achieved through a strategic alignment with distribution partners and a focus on tailoring solutions to the needs of roofing contractors while simultaneously engaging in the architectural community.

Matthew Weatherly became the fourth partner of Luna and Associates in May 2020 and on January 1st , 2022, he was named President of the company. With his new role, Weatherly’s focus has extended beyond the Nebraska territory and is now responsible for overseeing sales, operations and vendor relations throughout all Luna and Associates’ territories.

Congratulations, Matt!
