Deckorators® Introduces Pro Contractor Summit

Trip adds signature incentive to Deckorators Certified Pro program


Grand Rapids, Mich., July 6, 2017 – There’s an exciting new incentive available to contractors who partner with the leading brand in composite decking, railing and more. Deckorators®, a top brand of Universal Forest Products (Nasdaq: UFPI), has introduced the Deckorators Pro Summit, an all-inclusive trip for top-selling members of the Deckorators Certified Pro program.


The 2018 Deckorators Pro Summit trip will be offered to the top 10 Certified Pro contractors with the most 2017 Deckorators sales recorded to their rewards account between Jan. 1 and Nov. 30. They will be invited to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for three days and two nights of education and leisure at Bahia Mar Resort, Feb. 26 - 28, 2018. Deckorators will cover all airfare, lodging, transportation and meals for each qualifying Certified Pro.


The annual Pro Summit adds to the package of incentives and rebates already available in the Deckorators Certified Pro program, which is designed to increase contractors’ professional business opportunities and drive deck sales and installation services.


“We created the Deckorators Pro Summit because we value the loyalty and input of our Certified Pros,” said Chris Camfferman, director of category marketing for Deckorators. “We’re proud to offer a signature incentive that makes one of the industry’s best loyalty programs even more rewarding.”


Deckorators Pro Summit educational activities will include a panel discussion and an exclusive preview of new-for-2018 Deckorators products. Attendees can also earn a continuing education credit hour from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), and American Institute of Architects (AIA) by completing a separate course on-site.


Besides offering education, the Pro Summit will also feature recreation on the beautiful South Florida coast, including reef fishing and dinner at a waterfront catch-and-eat restaurant.


The Deckorators Certified Pro Program encourages contractors who use Deckorators products to become trained as specialists. Upon completion of their training, Certified Pros earn points by tracking the Deckorators products they purchase for their projects. Points are redeemable for promotional items or cash back.


Certified Pros also receive a preferred contractor listing on, have a direct line of communication to the Deckorators team and are the first to know about new products and promotions prior to launch.
