Executive Council Commends Leaders of Elk Sales Force

August 10, 2005—Dallas—ElkCorp (NYSE: Elk) subsidiary Elk Premium Building Products, Inc., (Elk) today announced the members of the 2005 District Sales Manager (DSM) Executive Council, honoring Elk roofing products’ elite sales force for excellent overall sales performance.

Honored with selection to the this year’s Executive Council are: John Ainsworth, Central Florida; Louis Gentry, Louisiana; Michael Hayden, Iowa/Nebraska; Jay Mangel, Southeast Florida and Richard Thompson, South Carolina.

Four of last year’s Executive Council members who have been honored again with positions this year are Kory Kelly, Washington/Montana/Idaho; Robert Marek, South Carolina/Georgia; Gunner Smith, Middle Tennessee and Arty Vasquez, Southwest Florida.

The nine individual DSMs from around the country were selected through an intensive screening process to hold the position in the Executive Council for one year. Not only were the DSMs required to be in the top 10% of the sales force, but they also had to meet other strict criteria to qualify, including a strong contractor commitment and success with the Elk Peak Performance SM Contractor Program.

The Executive Council is designed to honor excellent salespeople and tap into their valuable knowledge of Elk core customers: the contractor, distributor and builder. The Executive Council will contribute their hands-on customer expertise to upper management and many company departments, serving on several special projects throughout the year.

Curt Barker, ElkCorp senior vice president of sales and marketing said, “The sales professionals on the Executive Council were our best this year based on very difficult criteria. Their constant commitment to their customers’ needs and dedication to the Elk brand are invaluable assets to the company. Their efforts made a marked difference in their territory and to overall company sales. They will continue to make significant contributions to Elk in the coming year. Congratulations to them all.”
