Brad Sutter ◆ FRSA President’s Report

Thank You for Your Support at the 91st Annual Convention and Trade Show Greetings to our Members and Suppliers: Summer is here and with it the unpredictable weather and storms that fuel and complicate our business. Hopefully, our contractor members are taking the necessary precautions and steps to prepare for the weather on a daily basis by following good summer roofing practices (more tarps!). Another component of being prepared for the summer is having a disaster FRSA President Brad Sutter, preparedness plan in place Sutter Roofing Company of both personally and for your Florida business. Many of you are also aware that the Disaster Preparedness and Response Committee (DPRC) is one of the committees that meet at every FRSA quarterly board meeting. This committee has been in place since the hurricane season of 2004 and has spent thousands of hours working towards better practices and awareness for our members and the communities we serve. The current Chairman of the committee, Charlie Kennedy, from Gainesville Roofing recently attended the Governor’s Hurricane Conference in Ft. Lauderdale along with FRSA Technical Director, Mark Zehnal, CPRC. Through interaction at events like the Hurricane Conference, DPRC members have established many ties with agencies and individuals in the emergency management community around the State. These contacts have enhanced the visibility of our Association and increased the awareness of our activities to help our members with storm preparedness, response and recovery. By attending the Governor’s Conference over the last five years, we have also been able to network with other disaster preparedness and aid organizations, which has opened doors to educational and funding opportunities. We plan to continue our efforts to educate our members and the State’s consumers about the importance of being prepared for the storms that affect us. The critical need to have a plan for storms cannot be more clearly demonstrated than the recent tornadoes and storms in the Midwest. Those that took heed and moved to more solid structures certainly fared better than those that did not. Being prepared and having a plan can save the lives of you, your family and your employees. Wind mitigation, on the Florida Building Code books since 2005, is another critical area that contractors need to understand and

embrace as part of the service that we offer the citizens of Florida who dwell in houses built before 2002. See the article on page 10 to learn more. Support This Year’s Convention and Trade Show As most of you are aware, we are closing in on our reorganized Convention and Trade Show. We are very happy to report that the projections for exhibitors, attendees and educational opportunities all exceed last year. We strongly encourage all of our members to attend this year’s show to experience a more efficient format and expanded educational sessions. If you work in the roofing and sheet metal industry in Florida, you don’t want to miss this opportunity. It’s also important to note that this Association needs the support of its members to continue our work that benefits members. FRSA stands behind our contractors and associate members and is always on point with building code, workers’ compensation insurance and the many other issues that affect our members. FRSA has your back and for that it deserves your support and attendance at this year’s Convention! The Trade Show and Convention are the number one revenue driver for the Association. Without successful attendance, it would be impossible for the Association to continue to provide the level of service members receive. You will find a listing of this year’s exhibitors starting on page 13. As you can see, we are very fortunate to have the top manufactures, distributors and associates displaying at this year’s show. We all appreciate the generosity we find in this industry. Please make plans to visit those exhibitors whom you do business with and thank them for supporting our industry and FRSA. Without the support and patronage of these exhibitors and our members, the Convention and Trade Show would not be possible. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to delivering a 91st annual Convention and Trade Show that is fun, educational and one of which we can all be proud.

Contractors Protect Homeowners by Embracing Wind Mitigation Codes By Mark Zehnal, CPRC, FRSA Director of Technical Services Since the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons that saw seven storms hit Florida, each with winds of at least 105 mph, the weather has been comparatively calm in the State. As a result of Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Dennis, Katrina and Wilma, the Florida Legislature injected wind mitigation requirements into the 2004 Florida Building Code. Those code changes took effect in November 2005 and were intended to save lives and reduce property damage. While modifying the Code was a necessary first step, actual changes on the ground require the involvement of industry professionals. Implementation depends upon roofing contractors and building officials, along with the insurance industry, who must educate homeowners on the requirements and benefits involved in the expense of bringing a home up to code. Among roofing contractors and building officials, adoption has been mixed. We will not know just how mixed until the next major storm hits a populated area of the State. The fact that we are in the longest hurricane dry spell since the Civil War era means we probably won’t have to wait much longer to find out. One thing is certain, roofing contractors stand on the front lines of the battle to provide wind mitigation improvements to older houses. We fulfill our responsibility to serve Florida home owners and also create opportunities for increased revenue by understanding and embracing wind mitigation as part of the service we offer. Florida Wind Mitigation Genesis The 2004-2005 hurricane seasons produced some of the costliest storms to ever hit the United States. Five of the ten most costly US hurricanes ever struck during those devastating seasons. Here they are from costly to most costly: Name Rita Charley Ivan Wilma Katrina

Damage $11.8 billion $15.8 billion $19.8 billion $20.6 billion $105.8 billion

Year 2005 2004 2004 2005 2005

States Affected FL/LA/TX FL FL/AL FL LA/MS/AL/FL

After Charley initiated the 2004 season by ripping through the State with 130 mph winds, it became evident that homes constructed prior to the implementation of the 2001 Florida Building Code were particularly vulnerable to high winds. In the Spring of 2005, the Florida Legislature introduced “wind mitigation” stipulations into the Code that only took affect after a second round of costly hurricanes struck the State in 2005. What is Wind Mitigation?, published by Florida’s Foundation, states “wind mitigation specifically targets the structural and non-structural [building] aspects that prevent or lessen 10

damage caused by high winds that occur with storms.” Or, in code language, “building envelope”. These “aspects” include: ♦♦roof coverings, ♦♦roof decks, ♦♦roof-to-wall attachments, ♦♦roof geometry, ♦♦secondary water resistance and ♦♦exterior openings. To a roofing contractor, the fact that five of the six items included in wind mitigation fall within their domain will not be lost. This is why roofing professionals have a primary responsibility and opportunity when it comes to making wind mitigation happen. When an older house is being re-roofed, it only makes sense to make the homeowner aware of whatever mitigation improvements are needed and allow the homeowner to choose whether or not to proceed. For the homeowner who is having an old roof ripped off, he or she could save significant money by using a roofing contractor who is knowledgable enough about wind mitigation to make sure the proper improvements are made. The only difference is that in the roofing world, Florida Building Code requires the work to be completed, with an exemption or two. Here are some of the stipulations of the wind mitigation code that are required when a home that was permitted prior to March 2002 (under the unified Florida Building Code) gets a new roof: For homes valued at less than $300,000: ♦♦the deck nailing pattern needs to be brought up to current code and ♦♦hurricane clips or straps that connect the roof to the walls must be installed. The Code includes an exception that stipulates that if the cost of performing roof-to-wall connections is more than 15 percent of the total cost of the re-roof, the owner may choose not to have the work performed. However, for homes valued at $300,000 and more, or if $50,000 or more work is performed, the above exemption is not allowed. For homes $750,000 and above, in addition to the above requirements, the exterior windows and doors must be mitigated with either shutters or impact resistant glass (for windows) and reinforced doors, including garage doors.

Distinctive TAMKO Heritage® Architectural Shingles Offer Contractors More Options TAMKO’s Heritage® laminated asphalt shingles are a favorite with many homeowners and feature a wide range of colors and styles. Choices range from traditional Heritage Classic colors to the more vibrant beauty of America’s Natural Colors (ANC). Heritage® Woodgate® shingles distinctively take the classic qualities of Heritage one step further. Designed with a wider cut that conveys a rugged yet refined woodshake look, Woodgate shingles feature the same double layer construction of durable fiberglass mat found in all Heritage laminated asphalt shingles for strength and Class A fire protection. “TAMKO’s Heritage Woodgate laminated asphalt shingles are the perfect choice for homeowners who want the quality and reliability of a Heritage shingle with a contemporary look that showcases the appearance of natural wood,” said Stephen McNally, TAMKO’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Heritage Woodgate is available in five standard colors including Black Sage, Cabin Wood Brown, Weathered Wood, Antique Wood, Rustic Redwood and Cedar Wood. Three distinctive colors are also offered specifically for the Florida market: Desert Sand, Driftwood and Olde English Pewter. These colors offer a fresh look that will appeal to customers. “Combined with the unique design, the color choices for this region help houses stand out in their neighborhood,” said Jerry Roe. “Other shingles are more uniform. Woodgate is a good choice for customers who want to be different.” In order to help customers visualize how Heritage Woodgate shingles will look on their roof, TAMKO offers StyleSelect Roof Viewer. This interactive online tool helps demonstrate the color and finished look of the shingle. It also enables customers to select a roof that is similar in shape and style to their home, giving them an idea of how their finished roof may appear.

A Unique Choice TAMKO’s Heritage Woodgate laminated asphalt shingles are a popular product for many contractors who are looking for a different option to offer their customers. “Heritage Woodgate has a different look than the ordinary architectural shingle,” said Jerry Roe, owner of BRC High Tech Roofing in Jacksonville. “This helps us to be more competitive and appeal to a wider customer base.” The distinctive look of Heritage Woodgate also applies to the colors that are made with a unique color blend that complements the expansive look and allows for more dramatic color distribution across the shingle. Woodgate shingles feature an enhanced shadow line to further intensify the rustic shake-like beauty, as well as a random-cut sawtooth design that helps prevent unsightly zipper patterns on the roof.

Value of a Limited Warranty In addition to adding curb appeal to the home without the high cost or liabilities associated with wood shake, Heritage Woodgate shingles also offer a 30-year limited warranty. However it is more than the length of the limited warranty that matters - it is the length of the full start period, which is the amount of up-front protection in which both shingles and the labor to install the replacement shingles are covered. Woodgate offers a 15-year full start period, which adds to the overall value of the limited warranty. See Woodgate’s limited warranty for complete details. Woodgate’s limited warranty applies to more than just residential construction. TAMKO’s longest up-front protection applies to multifamily construction as well. Just because a structure is multifamily, does not mean it should have diminished limited warranty protection. Not all shingle limited warranties are created equal. Nowhere is this more evident than with multifamily housing. Woodgate also has a 15-year limited warranty against damage from winds up to 110 mph with standard application. This can be increased to 130 mph when applied in accordance with TAMKO’s high wind application instructions. High wind application requires the application of shingles in accordance with application instructions. This includes installing shingles with six fasteners in the locations specified for high wind and using TAMKO starter shingles including sealant strip at the eaves and rakes. Heritage Woodgate shingles also meet ASTM D 3462 at the time of manufacture and are MiamiDade County approved.


The Value of Being a Pro TAMKO also provides an opportunity for contractors to offer additional warranty coverage on Heritage Woodgate shingles at no additional cost to their customers by becoming a TAMKO Pro. The Mastercraft Limited Warranty Enhancement available exclusively to TAMKO Pros on purchases of Woodgate increases the full start protection period by 15 years to an overall 30-year period and doubles the one-time transferability period from 5 to 10 years. Becoming a certified TAMKO Pro will help to establish industry credibility for businesses by aligning them with a leading manufacturer. In addition to the enhanced limited warranties, TAMKO Pros receive more Choice Rewards incentives on Heritage Woodgate and other shingles including Heritage Vintage and Heritage shingles. Working Together A dependable roof is made of more than shingles with a unique colors and a unique design. To ensure that homeowners get the most out of their Heritage Woodgate shingles, TAMKO offers a complete line of roofing products that work together to enhance protection. The primary design of a roof system includes features that match weather conditions in the area. In hurricane-prone areas, winddriven rain is a common cause of roof leaks. Using products such as TAMKO’s self-adhering SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) -modified underlayments along rakes and eaves, as well as in valleys, creates a durable barrier to help prevent water from penetrating the wood roof deck and entering the home. It is important that this layer is strong. Fiberglass re-enforced SBS modified products used in TAMKO’s rain protective underlayments, are stronger and provide better tear resistance than standard saturated felt. TAMKO’s fiberglass re-enforced SBS underlayments also have a high temperature resistance up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. This helps protect the integrity of the product in environments that are prone to heat. Synthetic underlayment options are also available. Tam-Shield synthetic underlayment comes in a light-gray color which provides a cooler working surface when installing as opposed to traditional black felt. It may be exposed to UV rays for up to 180 days and is a lightweight product with more coverage per roll. Tam-Shield features lay lines and cap-nail locations printed on the underlayment for ease of installation. It is Miami-Dade County and Florida Building Code approved. Application Benefits Heritage Woodgate shingles are applied using the same application methods as Heritage and Heritage Premium shingles using a 4-cut no waste method to start the first 10 courses of shingles. After installing the underlayment and starter course shingles – begin the first course using a full 39-3/8” Heritage Woodgate shingle. Start the second course by cutting 10-3/8” from a full shingle to form a shingle 29” long. For the third course cut a 23” long shingle. Use the remaining 16-3/8” shingle to start the fourth course. Use the remaining 9-3/8” piece to start the fifth course. Repeat these steps for the next five working the way up the rake edge of the roof. Making these four cuts to begin the first 10 courses, with no waste, and no shingle pieces falling to the ground to pick up later reduces wasted material, and eases application with fewer cuts and less clean-up.

Wind Mitigation, continued from page 10

Two Groups of Professionals on the Front Lines The Florida Legislature established re-roofing as a trigger when older houses needed to be mitigated against high winds in order to protect lives and property from unnecessary and avoidable loss or damage. Two groups of professionals possess the responsibility to help homeowners adapt wind mitigation requirements: building officials and professional roofing contractors. The homeowner will typically have little or no knowledge of the requirements until their insurance company requests a mitigation report, so the contractor should be prepared to educate them and explain the rationale for the additional costs. Building officials should be asking questions when the contractor files a permit.

Another trigger, founded upon economics (and so less likely to be affected by negative inertia), originates from the insurance industry. As the insurance industry has dealt with the reality of a post-Andrew world, it has looked more carefully at the damages that can reasonably be expected from hurricanes in a State that has continued to grow in population. One insurance industry expert, for instance, estimated that a storm the caliber and location of Andrew would cause approximately five billion dollars in insured losses. The actual losses were three times that. More recently, the storms of 2004-05 gave the insurance industry the opportunity to see the differences in the number and severity of wind-related damages they could anticipate between newer houses built under the Florida

♦♦When was the house originally permitted? ♦♦What is the insured value (or property tax value if no insurance)? ♦♦What, if any, mitigation work has previously been performed per previous permit documents? These questions and others will help to determine what mitigation work needs to be performed and whether or not the homeowner can be exempted as far as Code is concerned (there are other concerns as we will see). If these two groups of professionals properly address wind mitigation concerns, the intent of the mitigation legislation will be effective. The next time a major storm passes through the State, we will have the opportunity to see to what degree the government and the industry has been doing its job. A More Sensitive Trigger Best intentions do not always translate into action. For a number of reasons professional contractors are not always as quick to adapt to “new” issues such as wind mitigation as they could be. The perception that it is an added burden or an attitude that “it’s not how we do things” can retard progress in protecting Florida’s citizens from the next storm. Wind mitigation requirements, however, are not going away anytime soon and the contractors who adopt them into their standard business practices will provide the service they should and realize additional income opportunities.

Every sales person, new or old, will be a #1 closer when you arm them with the confidence of an EagleView Report. Full color, high-resolution photos and accurate measurements for roof, walls, windows and doors will launch any sales team into higher closing rates by providing the confidence and more importantly, the time needed with the homeowner to close the deal. Spend time selling, not measuring. EagleView It!

Building Code and older construction. Understanding the financial liabilities involved when providing wind coverage for houses not built to current code requirements, insurance companies are requiring mitigation in order for homeowners to receive premium discounts or, in many cases, wind storm coverage at all. In a white paper on the economic effects of hurricanes, the Insurance Information Institute notes, No other state has Florida’s hurricane history or exposure to loss. Florida accounts for the highest percentage of historical losses for catastrophes: 17 percent of all U.S. insured catastrophe losses from 1980 to 2010, or $62.6 billion out of $379.1

billion in losses. By comparison, Texas is ranked second, with 11.2 percent of catastrophe losses for the same 30-year period, and Louisiana is ranked third, with 9.7 percent. Many Florida-based insurance providers, including Citizens, that underwrites more than a fifth of all Florida homes, require a wind mitigation inspection to be conducted and the necessary improvements to be made in order for wind storm damage coverage to be written for a house. The inspections are good for five years but without one, a homeowner may be unable to protect his investment from loss caused by wind events. On the positive side, the required improvements will make the house a better defense against the elements when the next windstorm strikes, potentially saving lives and mitigating damage caused by such storms.

Pet Project

Wind Storm Deductibles One result of Hurricane Andrew regarding home insurance was the advent of the wind storm deductible. Here’s an example of the increased potential cost to the homeowner from the same white paper mentioned above, Hurricane Andrew and Insurance: the Enduring Impact of an Historic Storm: With a $500 standard deductible, for example, the policyholder must pay the first $500 of the claim out of pocket. The same policyholder with a house insured for $300,000 with a 5 percent deductible would pay $15,000 of a claim.

In this example, the homeowner would be on the hook for $15,000 – 30 times more – than before Hurricane Andrew. With this in mind, it is easier to explain to a homeowner the financial benefits they may realize with wind mitigation improvements to their home. Having home insurance does not necessarily mean avoiding significant deductibles and by taking steps to mitigate such damage, the homeowner benefits. Find Out More Damage to a house’s roof during wind events often determines the extent to which the entire house sustains damage. If the roof is breached, the damage tends to go from manageable to very significant. Roofing professionals armed with the correct information and with the will to do so stand in a position to provide valuable and even life-saving service to homeowners.

Gulfeagle Celebrating 40 Years of Quality and Value Presented by Gulfeagle Supply, Sapphire Sponsor of the 91st Annual FRSA Convention and Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Expo Since the inception of our business in 1973, Gulfeagle Supply has taken pride in delivering the highest quality and best value to our customers. This philosophy has helped us grow into an industry leader, distributing a wide range of roofing and building materials currently throughout the nation. Gulfeagle Supply, headquartered in Tampa, has created a roofing materials supply business model designed to weather economic dips and dives – in part because of an aggressive expansion and roll-up strategy. Gulfeagle Supply has had a steady thirst for acquisitions and continues to pursue acquisition opportunities. The business model has fueled its fast growth; Gulfeagle Supply was ranked 14th fastest growing business in the Tampa Bay Journal’s 2012 Book of Lists publication and the company employs almost 900 across the nation. Startup Company Founded Eagle Supply of Tampa was the primary supplier of roofing and other building materials in the 1960s. Eagle Supply was founded in 1905 and received its factory shipments of materials by railcar. “They would then deliver by truck to dealers throughout the state,” Jim Resch, founder of Gulfeagle Supply, recalls. Resch remembers making sales calls in the Tampa area in the early 1970s and was in the process of working with a new account when fate stepped in. “My distributor prospect was a new startup business that was formed by a group of salespeople who had just left Eagle Supply,” Resch said. “One week later, I returned to Tampa with a carload of samples and literature to set up the new distributor, only to find that the principals of the new startup got a case of cold feet and fled to other greener

pastures.” When Resch returned to his Atlanta home, he discussed the events of the day with his wife, Molly. “We decided that with limited funds, a little home equity and some help from the small business people that the time had come to form our own business, which we named Gulfside Supply.” With limited delivery equipment, Resch says he employed an experienced inside salesperson, as well as a young rookie, to operate the small rented warehouse facility. “My skills were basically in sales due to the excellent training provided at the time of my hire with the Barrett Division of Allied Chemical,” he said. “So I hit the road in southwest Florida selling and delivering and, of course, collecting when necessary. Resch’s early experiences as the owner of a fledgling company quickly taught him people buy from people. “Many of my early customer friends are still doing business with us today, or in some cases their children or grandchildren.” Our Core Values Gulfeagle Supply is dedicated to providing our customers with quality products and excellent service. We strongly believe in the importance of: accountability, safety, relationships, and the development of people, and therefore have identified them as our core values. These core values provide the solid foundation that will continue to steer our company’s growth in the years ahead.

Kids to the Rescue At the September board meetings at Inverness, the Spouse Committee decided they would collect can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Returning home, Julie Manson mentioned the project to daughter-in-law Cherish Manson, a teacher at Buffalo Creek Middle School in Parrish. Cherish came up with the idea of challenging her students to collect the can tabs for this very worthy cause. And collect they did. Julie could not believe her eyes when Cherish delivered the stash of tabs collected. At the April board meetings in Gainesville, two large file boxes along with five buckets, all filled with tabs were presented

to the committee. “To fill those containers to the top with those tiny tabs is truly an amazing charitable accomplishment and we extend our thanks to the wonderful children at Buffalo Creek Middle School,” stated Lisa Pate, FRSA Executive Director, “the back of my car was filled to the top bringing the tabs back to Orlando.” FRSA President Brad Sutter sends his thanks and congratulation to the kids for a job well done. “It certainly is great seeing these students come through for such a fine charity. We’ll make sure that everyone knows about Buffalo Creek Middle when we present the tabs at this year’s convention.”
