JC Roofing & Insulating is a certified contractor able to install GAF, Genflex, Firestone, Johns Manville and FiberTite commercial products, and is the largest TPO installer in the Midwest.
“We’re not stuck with one product. We’re certified to install about any roofing system there is, from single ply to built-up roofs,” he said. “We will give you what you want.”
Cain said advances have been made in roofing technology to enhance the longevity and quality of flat roofs.
For example, cool roof or white roof membranes reflect heat; they don’t absorb it, keeping a building cooler in the summer.
“It costs more to cool a building than it does to heat it, so it makes sense to use a cool roof rather than a black rubber roof,” he said.
Solar technology can also be built into a roof, and JC Roofing received training to install that.
There are many applications for single ply flat roofs. Single ply membranes are an inexpensive alternative for additions and sunrooms, mobile homes and campers to prevent leaks. They are harder to puncture, will hold up in hail storms, and are often put together without the use of chemicals to avoid harming the environment.
“People complain that they don’t like their flat roof because they have problems with it. If you install a flat roof right, you won’t have any problems with it. Some flat roofs are warrantied up to 35 years. If installed properly, and maintained, depending on what you buy, a flat roof should have an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years,” he said.
If you have a flat roof that needs to be repaired, JC Roofing can do the work on it.
“We’re so diversified that we can do what you need us to do. We can repair a hot roof, built up, single ply, TPO, PVC or FiberTite roof with the product it calls for. We have the knowledge and experience to repair those types of roofs,” he said. “We’re schooled in everything.”
