Deckorators® Introduces Elite Level for Certified Pro Program
February Pro Summit in Florida honors top members of growing ‘family’
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 30, 2020 – Deckorators®, a leading manufacturer of composite decking, deck railing, balusters, post caps and related products, has introduced Deckorators Certified Elite, the highest recognition level for its growing deck contractor partnership and rewards program.
Deckorators Certified Elite status is based on volume, quality, growth and partnership by market. Deck builders who achieve Elite status receive all the benefits of Certified Pro program membership, plus:
· Elevated representation on Deckorators.com.

· Eligibility for Certified Pro Spotlight video and social media promotion.

Certified Pros now earn 3 percent back in rewards points for all Deckorators purchases logged to their account — an increase of 1-2 percent over past rewards depending on the product category.
Also new for 2020, U.S.-based Deckorators Certified Pros now have the option to take advantage of discounted leads through the Deckorators HomeAdvisor® program.
“The Deckorators Certified Pro program is not just another deck contractor program — to us, it’s a family,” said Chris Camfferman, managing director, marketing for Deckorators. “We’re excited to recognize our Elite Certified Pros and offer even better rewards across the board in 2020. We truly value relationships with our Pros, and we will continue to improve the program with their business needs in mind.”

3rd Annual Pro Summit honors Top Certified Pros
Deckorators hosted its third annual Pro Summit in February at the Marriott Westshore Hotel in Tampa, Florida. The all-inclusive trip honored top Certified Pros with the most Deckorators rewards points recorded to their individual Certified Pro rewards accounts in 2019.
The mix of Pro Summit alumni and new Pro Summit attendees engaged in three days of learning and collaboration with Deckorators sales, marketing and operations leadership. The group enjoyed several social events including a VIP experience at a Major League Baseball spring training game.
“Our strategic discussions about products and new collaborative concepts were extremely productive,” said Jase DeBoer, senior marketing manager for Deckorators. “Most importantly, though, we had the opportunity to celebrate our strong partnership with the Deckorators Certified Pro family.”
The 2021 Pro Summit is planned for Phoenix, Arizona. Deckorators has plans to invite top Certified Pros beyond the Top 10, and to have representation from both the U.S. and Canada. Certified Pros can stay tuned to www.deckorators.com/pro-summit for more details.
