Saiz Tool Company was started in 2005 with an idea that there must be an easier way to cut the thick shingles that were on the market. Being in the roofing business since 1972 I have seen many changes in the roofing industry. I can recall the days when all a roofer had was a nail pouch, hatchet, nail stripper, comp knife and a skill saw. Well those days are long gone. Now the nailing guns have replaced the hatchet and the shakes and wood shingles have gone by the way of the dinosaur.
The only thing that has not changed is the need for the good old comp knife and I believe it will be around for years to come.
All roofers will more then likely agree it has gotten harder and harder to cut the thick composition shingles with the good old Comp knife. That is why for the last 5 to 6 years I along with the support of my wife Laura, have been developing the Saiz Shingle Cutting Tool.
The Saiz Shingle Cutting Tool will be a welcome addition for the roofers to easily cut the many different thickness of the composition shingles as well as many other roofing related materials.
We were able to show the Saiz Shingle Cutting Tool at the 2010 and 2011 International Roofing Expo, which was well received by many in attendance.
