FAQ: Insurance & Hail Damage

Q: What if the Insurance Company Denies, Delays or Low-Balls?
example of roof damageA: In my experience, most of the times the insurance company does the right thing. Sometimes, the insurance company will have an “independent” engineer or roofer come to inspect the roof. That “independent” engineer or roofer may say that the roof has no damage...the insurance company may deny the claim ... The insurance company’s “no,” is not the end of the inquiry…it is just the beginning.

2. Energy Efficient: TPO White Roofing Systems are excellent reflective surfaces, reducing heat build-up both above and under the membrane.

3. Highly Resistant: TPO Membrane roofs are resistant to fire, UV, airborne bacteria, and industrial pollutants. They are resistant to tears, impact, punctures, and wind uplift.

4. Reduced Installation Costs: Because of the widths that are available, the roofs can have less seams than standard PVC sheets. Less seams means less labor, resulting in reduced installation costs.

5. Thick Top Ply: TPO Membrane Roofs have more product on top of the scrim. In fact, it is one of the thickets top lies in the industry.

6. Capabilities: TPO Membrane roofing keeps moisture out, can handle even hot sun, sand, arctic freezes, heavy downpours, and even rooftop traffic and equipment. All of these attributes makes it ideal for new construction. TPO is also lightweight, allowing retrofit installations without adding excessive weight.

7. Flexes With Temperature Changes: Because it will flex with hot and cold temperatures, it is more resistant to cracking or splitting.

8. Cleanable & Repairable: You can repair TPO membrane roofs again and again. The construction of the product allows for cutouts, alterations, and even tie-ins. Additionally, you can keep it looking new by proper cleaning.

9. High Value; Low Price: We at Curb Appeal Roofing and Construction know the very best TPO products to use for your roof. The highly evolved TPO technology allows for excellent results. Yet, we also know which products are available at the very best price!

Mule-Hide has some of the best TPO Membrane products. In this and the next two blog articles, we'll take a look at some of those products. We'll also include the basic information on a handy website page for you.

INSTALL OVER EXISTING METAL ROOF.
Did you know that you can successfully install TPO Membrane roofing products over existing squares of standing-seam metal panels? TPO Membranes and products have successfully covered leaky metal roofing and small gaps between adjacent buildings. Additional fasteners can be used to provide increased wind resistance.

PRE-TAPED EPDM FOR FAST APPLICATION OF WRINKLE-FREE SEAMS.
Our taped membrane is factory applied, ensuring uniform width and thickness of the adhesive, with no trapped air bubbles. Mule-hide's factory applied adhesive is more reliable, with 30 percent greater peel and strength. Our factory placement of the tape provides Curb Appeal Roofing and Construction with a reliably positioned adhesive. This can cut our seaming time by almost 75 percent! Cutting seaming time saves you, our customer, labor costs.

CURB APPEAL CONSTRUCTION'S WELL-TRAINED ROOFING CREWS HELP INCREASE INSTALLATION AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY.
While it is important to focus on energy efficiency, if the roofing products are not properly repaired or applied, both energy and cost efficiency go down the drain! Make certain the roofing company you are interviewing KNOWS how to install the TPO products. And, installation expertise must include TPO roofs and TPO roof repairs.

Because of Their Properties, TPO Membranes Roofs are One of the Fastest Growing Roofing Systems. They Provide Owners with Excellent Commercial Flat Roofs.

Curb Appeal Roofing and Construction is Expert in the Installation and Repair of TPO Membrane roofs.

TPO Membrane Roofing

"TPO" is short for "Thermoplastic Polyolefin" and are single-ply roofing membranes. TPO is made up of sheets that are a blend of polymers and are usually reinforced with polyester.

TPO’s properties make it highly desirable for commercial flat roofs:

  • Can repeatedly soften with heat and harden with cold without losing its flexibility (making it especially well suited for Oklahoma’s weather extremes)
  • UV absorbers protect against ultraviolet radiation
  • It provides exceptional resistance to ozone and chemical exposure
  • It's white color helps to reflect sunlight and reduce heat build-up
  • It is flame retardant (increasing wildfire risks in Oklahoma make this an especially good roofing material)
  • Has many installation advantages.
  • To avoid the expense of tearing off an existing non-TPO system, TPO sheets are available with fleece backing that can be applied over an existing concrete or granular molecule roof, or can be mopped onto an existing hot asphalt roof.
  • The seams of a TPO roof are heat welded with hot air to provide increased resistance to tearing. These qualities enhance puncture resistance, helping to protect the roof against hailstorm damage.
