Johns Manville (JM), a leading supplier of commercial roofing products, today announced their Pinnacle Council and Summit Club members for 2014. These Peak Advantage program members met rigorous criteria with regard to quality installation practices, maintenance capabilities and commercial roofing knowledge to qualify for these elite statuses.
