Insurance Claims Specialist
If your commercial roof needs repair from hail damage, or if your property experienced fire or water damage, we are specialists in all phases of the restoration of your property. From providing an expert analysis of the damage, writing a full report and estimating the extent of the damages, as well as working directly with your insurance carrier / adjuster to insure your property receives the proper settlement, we do it all. Many times, customers are forced to complete their commercial roof repairs based on what the insurance adjuster wrote in their estimate, while never realizing that the initial offer by the carrier can be negotiated up or substantially increased depending on how the settlement estimate is written. One reason is because most Dallas roofing contractors do not have the knowledge, skill or experience to work the claim properly. We use the same “database system” that insurance carriers use to calculate the damage; however, we know how to write each classification using the system’s components and scope options within the estimating program to increase the available funds for our customer. We will show you how by providing you with a detailed comparative analysis that highlights where the insurance either got it right or wrong in their estimate. About 95% of the time, we see the claim funds increased substantially for our clients because of our knowledge, skill and expertise in working within this estimating system. We are very successful in this process and it makes a huge difference in the claim settlement.
Different Types Of Roofing
- Modified Bitumen Roofing
- Elastomeric Roofing
- Built-Up ..(BUR)
- TPO Roofing
- EPDM Roofing
- Commercial Metal Roofing
- NovaTuff Epoxy Coating
Polymer-modified bitumen or modified bitumen (MB) sheet membranes were developed in Europe in the early 1960s and have been in use in the U.S. since the mid 1970s. Polymer-modified roof membranes are composed of reinforcing fabrics that serve as carriers for the hot polymer-modified bitumen as it is manufactured into a roll material. MB roof system membranes are composed of multiple layers, much like BUR membranes. MB roof systems typically are installed as a two-ply system and almost always are fully adhered.
There are two types of MB roofing membranes:
SBS polymer-modified bitumen membranes
commonly are installed in hot mopping of asphalt (similar to BUR systems) or cold adhesive. Some SBS modified membranes are self adhering; that is, they contain an adhesive backing.
APP polymer-modified bitumen membranes
typically are heat-welded or torch-applied. Consumers should be cautioned that NRCA does not recommend torch-applying a modified bitumen membrane sheet directly to a wood deck.
Surfacings for MB membranes include aggregate surfacing, mineral surfacing, metal foil-laminate surfacing and smooth liquid-applied surfacing. A roof system composed of a built up roof membrane with 2 plies or 3 plies and a polymer-modified bitumen membrane cap sheet is commonly referred to as “hybrid” system. NRCA considers this type to be a polymer modified bitumen membrane system.
Elastomeric roof coatings have been used since the early 1980s. A long-term, economical roofing solution often overlooked is Elastomeric roof coatings. These coatings, applied to traditional roofing systems, comply with new regulations or help a building obtain ENERGY STAR® or LEED Green Building Rating System® certification. Building owners and facility managers nationwide are realizing the lasting benefits of elastomeric roof coatings. These durable, liquid coatings prolong the life of the existing roof. In fact, elastomeric roof coatings can be used over multiple roof types, including BUR, modified bitumen, metal, cement and EPDM. Many white-coated roofs exist today with excellent adhesion and high solar reflectance – more than 20 years after their initial application.
An elastomeric roof coating creates a uniform, seamless surface that remains flexible even at low temperatures. It expands and contracts with changing weather conditions, protecting a roof’s surface from the sun’s damaging rays. This enables the coating to handle the continuous thermal stresses over the lifetime of the roof. Its adhesion characteristics enable the coating to remain attached to the roof in wet or extremely windy conditions. Such a coating employs technology (to resist dirt pick-up) that helps maintain energy-saving reflectance qualities, as well as a bright, clean appearance.
On existing buildings, elastomeric roof coatings do not add “dead load” or weight to the roof. The roof coating can be applied without being counted as an additional layer for code purposes. This mitigates the cost of disposal from tear-off and contributes to dollars saved by the building owner.
Built-up roof membranes, referred to by the acronym BUR, have been in use in the U.S. for more than 100 years. These roof systems are commonly referred to as “tar and gravel” roofs. BUR systems generally are composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane. The number of plies in a cross section is the number of plies on a roof: The term “four plies” denotes a four ply roof membrane construction. Sometimes, a base sheet, used as the bottommost ply, is mechanically fastened. Built up roofs generally are considered to be fully adhered if applied directly to roof decks or insulation. The reinforcing fabrics also are called roofing felts or ply sheets. Roofing felts are reinforced with either glass-fiber mats or organic mats. Felts are produced in a standard width of 36 inches and metric width of about one meter.
The bitumen typically used in BUR roof systems is asphalt, coal tar or cold-applied adhesive. The asphalt or coal tar is heated in a kettle or tanker and then applied by mop or mechanical spreader. Asphalt is a petroleum product refined from crude oil; coal tar is derived from the distillation of coal. Cold-applied adhesives typically are solvent-based asphalts that don’t have to be heated in a kettle or tanker.
Surfacing for built up roof systems include aggregate (such as gravel, slag or mineral granules), glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, hot asphalt mopped over the entire surface, aluminum coatings or elastomeric coatings.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO, is part of a diverse family of rubber-like materials based on polypropylene and EP rubber polymerized together using a state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. Unlike other popular thermoplastic roofing membranes (PVC), TPO does not contain chlorine or plasticizers. Without chlorine being added, it can be classified as an environmentally safe “green” product. It is also 100% recyclable. In addition, the lack of plasticizers enables sheets to wear longer and not harden or become brittle over time. Flame retardants, light stabilizers, antioxidants, light absorbers and pigments are blended to create a sheet that is “Title 24” compliant. The white TPO roofing membrane typically has a reflectivity rating in the high 80% range when installed, and after 3 years still maintains a rating in the low 80% range.
In commercial roofing applications, the TPO membrane is installed using mechanical fasteners and plates placed along the leading edge with the next sheet lapped and then hot air-welded together. Hot air robots make larger jobs very quick with welds that are consistent. One of the major benefits of TPO is that the welded seams actually become stronger than the sheets themselves, making for an ultra-strong roof. TPO is suitable either as an overlay or for use in a complete tear-off. Sheet thicknesses range from 45 mils to 80 mils, with the 60-mil sheet the most popular. Because TPO roofing material is manufactured in wide sheets, labor requirements are reduced, especially on larger roof installations, which can result in significant cost savings, making TPO an economical choice. Completely odorless, TPO is good choice for situations where fumes would be a problem and roofs that have limited access. Manufacturer material and labor warranties for TPO roofing range from 10 to 20 years.
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM is available in both black and white, and is sold a broad variety of widths, ranging from 7.5 feet to fifty feet, and in two thicknesses, 45 and 60 mils. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape. The material can be loose laid and ballasted with rock or pavers to hold the membrane in place. It can also be fully or partially adhered as well. Seams and the membrane are adhered with contact adhesives, with seams sometimes joined with a sealant. Toppings may or may not be required by the manufacturer in many cases.
Metal is energy efficient. Standing seam roofs can be insulated with almost any amount of insulation. Add the radiant barrier effect to this and they are the most energy efficient of any system. Fiberglass blanket insulation is installed directly under the panels and stretched over the supporting structural members to reduce energy costs and dampen noise. Foam insulation blocks can be used between roof panels and substructures to prevent thermal loss, with a natural radiant barrier effect, and are long lasting, resist decay, discoloration and mildew. Metal roofs come in several types. Concealed fastener systems include mechanical lock and snap-lock assembly systems. Double-lock, batten seam, and t-panel are among the most common concealed fastener panels.
NovaTuff Epoxy Coating is a flexible two-part epoxy designed to protect a variety of surfaces including rubber, concrete, foam, plywood, metal and petroleum-based surfaces. It is especially suited to applications where surface movement may defeat the protection of a rigid coating.
NovaTuff Epoxy Coating is excellent for waterproofing EPDM, TPO, PVC, built-up, single ply, polyurethane foam, concrete, and metal roofs. The flexibility retained by NovaTuff Epoxy Coating allows for surface movement caused by thermal shock to most structures.
NovaTuff Epoxy Coating can be applied to EPDM, TPO, PVC, built-up, single ply, polyurethane foam, concrete, and metal
