During the fall of 2005, and again in 2006, the coastal states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana were pummeled by a succession of strong Atlantic hurricanes.
JP Allen was enlisted by a local firm to go down to help out with the ravaged Gulf Coast area. Stationed out of Pascagoula MS, working with PSM and in conjunction with Commercial Roofers LLC of Arlington, TX and Affiliated Companies of Dallas, TX, JP Allen provides estimating, coordination, project management, procurement, on site management, and supervision for many of the largest roofing projects under way. In addition to that, there we a myriad of smaller roofing projects and construction projects that had to be done during the over two years spent in the area.
The area of Bay St Louis, MS was close to the epicenter of land fall for Hurricane Katrina and out of that came projects such as the Hancock County Courthouse with its tile roof and hot mop roof work. In addition to that was the largest casino in Bay St. Louis the Casino Magic Hotel. The project consisted of several jobs such as green metal mansard seventeen stories in the air on a 40 degree slope, TPO roofing on the main casino, TPO roofing on the two story mechanical building, a green mansard roof on the golf club house, and Mule Hide applied coatings on the offsite warehouse and the golf cart maintenance building.
The team brings not only its high quality team to the table during a disaster, but its Resource Team:
The devastated city of Biloxi, MS in September of 2005 was trying to rebuild. Teaming with Affiliated, PSM, Commercial Roofers, LLC, JP Allen was tasked with managing and supervising the over 1,400 Squares of blue Met-Tile metal roofing that needed to be installed on the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino. This project was not started until the first of October and had to be completed by Christmas for a grand re-opening of the casino. Working seven days a week was almost the norm during this period. In addition to having to furnish and install a new roof, the team had to take off what was left of the over 1,400 squares of damaged metal roofing. The results spoke for themselves – On time as expected.
In August of 2008, the devastating Hurricane Ike came ashore just east of Houston, Texas. Our firm went down and performed a re-roof of over 1,250 square of GAF high definition shingles nailing them down to exceed the code in the area for which the property was built. The project was University Trace Town Home Association.
Our sales staff prides ourselves as being client-service oriented and our customers come first with us. Our services include commercial roofing systems, repairs and emergency repair and insurance work.
Preventative Maintenance Guidelines: Do’s And Don’ts
A building owner or property manager knows that ongoing maintenance of the roofing system is part of building ownership. To not perform the maintenance as required by the manufacturer’s terms and conditions will void the guarantee agreement and void any and all warranties related to the installation of or materials installed. Here are some things to think about if you are an Owner or Building Manager.
Perform inspections during the life of the roof but no less than at least twice a year of as required by the guarantee. The optimum time to perform inspections is at the end of winter and the end of summer when roofs have gone through the greatest amount of thermal stress.
Check your roof frequently for any trouble spots each time you are on it. Look for clogged drains in the spring and fall of the year.
Keep a file of all records and inspection reports relating to your roof and its installation and warranty.
Notify all roof top equipment service personnel to be careful handling tools and heavy equipment on the roof. Provide a plan for them to protect the roof while working. Log in all such trips to the roof.
Keep your roof free and clean of debris and potential contaminates.
Establish a rooftop control policy. Keep access doors and hatches closed and locked at all times. Advise anyone going up on the roof to be careful.
We also pride ourselves on “Honesty and Integrity” and we will work with our Clients to ensure that their project experience will be handled promptly and efficiently.
Insurance claims are one of our specialties. Claims will be handled quickly and efficiently and if the claim is roof related, we will respond immediately if at all possible. We want the “roofing experience” of our clients to be handled by our staff promptly and with the least hardship to the Owner or Property Manager during the process.
Allow unqualified personnel to work on or maintain your roof. By doing so, you've just voided the warranty.
Allow any personnel, supplier or subcontractor/service personnel to make penetrations into your roof; these are to be made by an approved roofing contractor who is certified by the manufacturer.
Power wash your roof. You may cause unintended damage and irreversible harm which may lead to an extensive and expensive patch.
Puncture the membrane for any reason without an approved roofing contractor doing the work.
Move any heavy equipment across the roof.
A good guideline for commercial roofing maintenance can be found on the Johns Manville Roofing Systems. Here you can view JM’s recommended preventative maintenance plan for a commercial roof system.
If you are an Owner or Building Manager that has a commercial membrane system similar to TPO, PVC or EPDM, you can visit one of our selected vendor sites at MuleHide.com. By browsing their website, you can better understand the differences between the three roofing types and the maintenance issues.
It is our job to make the Owner and Building Management firms understand that we are here for them. We want them to be pro-active in keeping the life cycle of their roof going to and beyond the warranty period’s end. To that end, we can work with the client to come up with a Customized Roofing Maintenance Plan for each property and tailor that to the client's yearly budget outlay for each fiscal year that the building is in warranty. By doing this, the Owner and/or Property Manager feels comfortable that the roof is being properly maintained and barring any improper work by others being done, the roof will last through the warranty period.
Let one of our Commercial roofing sales associates meet with you and tailor a Customized Roofing Maintenance Plan for your building today.
