Wickizer & Associates is a manufacturers agent of quality building products. We specialize in the building science of the building envelope and represent product solutions that impact the designer, builder and the building material distributor. We work diligently to serve and support our clients in each of the three areas of the design to purchase channel;
Serving the Architect
We support the design community as knowledgeable consultants and we endeavor to remain current of the latest building science. Rather than “sell” we prefer to offer solutions to our architect clients and assist within the design and product selection process.
Serving the Builder
Getting the right product installed properly is key to the success and reputation of a builder. We offer initial training and installation support for all the products we represent. We are also very active on the job boards and can filter project leads to our builder partners.
Serving the Distributor
Supplying building products quickly and economically is critical to the success of any building product. We work with our distributors to ensure they have strong product knowledge to assist their customers, plus we help with pricing and inventory management to ensure product is turning profitably.

Independent reps typically carry complimentary product lines, which helps provide synergistic solutions during their sales/service interactions.
Independent reps are a variable cost to the manufacturers they represent. They are paid commissions only when sales are made. Also, employee benefits and employment taxes are not paid for an independent rep.
In many cases, an independent representative agency will put more “feet on the street”, in the case of larger firms with more than one selling representative.
