Ever wish that you could work around the solar panels when installing a new roof? Any building owner with roof leaks or hail damage and a roof-mount solar system certainly does!

Pioneer Roofing and Specialties, has been voted Las Cruces’ Best Roofing Contractor 5 years in a row by the readers of the Las Cruces Sun-News and I am guessing that their pioneering efforts like those seen on this completed SureCoat Roof System project are partly to blame!

Mario Moreno, owner of Pioneer Roofing, and his crews have sold and installed dozens of SureCoat Roof Restorations this coating season throughout the city of Las Cruces alone! Mario has three crews and SureCoat roof installs booked well into spring of 2015.
Just look at the perfection of this roof on the home of the Eric and Donna Johnson in the Horseshoe neighborhood of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Mario and his crew installed a complete SureCoat Roof Restoration while the Johnson’s solar system stayed in place on their roof! Eliminating removal of the solar energy system alone saved these homeowners thousands of dollars and the more panels on the roof, the higher the cost of disconnection and reinstallation. Look at this case study performed on the South Coast AQMD. The cost to disconnect and reinstall just one of their solar systems was estimated at $80,000.

This roof turned out to be a Latent Hail Damage case which required a Forensic Specialist to diagnose. When originally inspected, the claim on this hail damaged roof was minimal only paying for a few damaged parapet wall areas. Concerned that they were in need of a more thorough evaluation, Mr. Eric Johnson, PE, both a Professional Engineer and practicing professor at NMSU, further pursued his claim with State Farm Insurance. It was then, that State Farm called in a Forensic Specialist from Colorado.
