An industrial coating is a great option for flat or metal roofs. Not only do acrylic and silicone roofing options lower energy bills and extend the life of your roof, applications typically cost 1/3 the price of a normal roof replacement!
Silicone and Acrylic coatings are one monolithic, seamless membrane that will eliminate any leak issues. As we normally place a coating on an existing roof, business owners can rest easy knowing they will not lose income due to lost production inside the building during the application process. The photo on the right demonstrates the immediate temperature difference a silicone coating provides.
Acrylic and Silicone coatings typically qualify for tax deductions as well!

EPDM Roofing Membranes
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) synthetic, rubber roof membranes have been used on roofs in the United States since 1960 and are one of the most common types of low-slope roofing materials. This is because it is relatively inexpensive, simple to install, and fairly clean to work with when compared to conventional built-up roofs. There are fewer odors and fumes that accompany built-up roofs which appeals to many property owners and managers. The properties of EPDM - resilience; tensile strength; elongation; resistance to ozone, ultraviolet light and ponding water – make this membrane an excellent roofing material.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Membranes
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) membranes are one of the most popular commercial roofing materials. These single ply membranes are created by using reinforcing fabric and rubber together with state-of the art technology to be considered an environmentally safe, “green” product. TPO roofing membrane is typically installed using mechanical fasteners and plates placed along the edge of the sheet and fastened through the membrane and into the roof decking. Adjoining sheets of TPO membrane are overlapped, covering the fasteners and plates, and joined together with a hot air weld. This type of system is highly resistant to wind and other weather factors.
Modified Bitumen Membranes
Modified Bitumen technology developed out of attempts to widen the serviceability range of conventional oxidized roofing asphalt. Increased resistance to brittleness at cold temperatures, greater flow resistance at high temperatures, and increased elasticity can be achieved by blending synthetic rubberized polymers with asphalt in lieu of modification by blowing processes (oxidation). The result is a membrane that combines the multi-layer benefits of a built-up roof with the installation advantages of a single-ply membrane. They are available in smooth surfaced or granulated rolls that can be heat welded, cold applied or hot applied.
Why would an insurance company ask you to provide quotes from multiple contractors?
This is a money saving tactic that helps protect the bottom line of the insurance company-but it does NOT work in favor of the property owner!
In a case where you have property damage and a claim is not warranted, such as trades related for property maintenance or repairs, (A/C, Plumbing, Electrical, Dirt work, Landscape, etc.) it absolutely behooves the homeowner to get estimates in order to save the customer money.
However-in the case of an insurance claim, a policy holder is utilizing funds that the insurance company has allowed for damage on the insured property. Insurance companies make a profit by paying out the minimum funds accepted by policy holders-it is in their best interest to offer you less than you are due!
To ensure the property owner receives everything due to them, it benefits them to hire a reputable contractor that understands the insurance process and has the knowledge to help maximize the claim in order to have their property restored back to pre-storm condition.
A good contractor will act as an advocate for the property owner, and should be willing to negotiate on their client’s behalf. Insurance companies know this, and also know that the average ‘Chuck in a truck’ (the cheapest bidder) will simply move on once the job is done. This is another reason it is good to choose a contractor who is local to your area, and not just chasing the next storm.
As far as the deductible goes, as stated in your policy, that is the agreed amount the insured (property owner) is responsible for paying to the contractor on any claims that you file for storm damage. Please see the flyer at the bottom of this letter for details.
Let’s say you get estimates from 3 contractors and you choose the cheapest price for the job, you have just now saved the insurance company money and the deductible will still come out of the lowest price. The savings are never passed along to the property owner, and the cheapest contractor does not equal the best work provided.
For example, here is a scenario where the deductible is $2,000.00:
Joe Bob’s Roofing $10,000.00
Rocking S Roofing $12,000.00
JP Allen Co $14,000.00
(Regardless of the price, the only amount that you responsible for is the $2,000.00 deductible.)
Now, out of these 3 contractors, who do you think has the best opportunity to get all the repairs taken care of for your home needs? When you choose to go with lowest price you are only saving the insurance company money.....WHY???
Here is where they get you: when you file a claim and the insurance adjuster has done his assessment, it is sent off to the insurance company for review. At this point, they implement what is called a ‘depreciative amount’ for your roof. If the roof is 5 years old and the lifespan of that roof is 20 years old, they are safely going to hold back 25% of what that roof is worth. That money is held back and can't be collected until the contractor that you have hired sends in all of his receipts, subcontractor's invoices, and a copy of the contract. Only then will that money be released to you! Years ago, insurance companies didn't do this, and they found out that certain policy holders were simply taking the money and not performing any repairs to their home. They hold back the depreciation to keep the homeowners responsible for properly maintaining the property this way.
Let me give you an idea of a payout on a claim. (Please note this is for example only.)
Value of damages: $14,000.00 = Total amount required for repairs.
Deductible: $2,000.00 = Homeowner's responsibility to contractor.
Depreciation $3,500.00 = 25% which is (RCV) recoverable on the back end.
Net Claim $8,500.00 = 1st check
This gives you $8,500.00 to get the ball rolling and another $3,500.00 after repairs are completed and documented. The $2,000.00 deductible is the only out of pocket expense for the policy holder. (We offer low monthly payment options to make the process affordable and expedite repairs.) I hope you see now why it is imperative to make sure that the claim is maximized in order for the repairs needed. Let's work together and make sure that the insurance company is fair and honest with your claim instead of saving them money. You pay them good money to take care of you, so let's hold them accountable! Remember that it is YOU, the policy holder, who is in control of the claim process, not the carrier!
