Roofing Success Story: How Jeremiah Broz Is Bringing Change To The Roofing Industry And What It Means For The Homeowners!

Recently, the CEO of Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar, Jeremiah Broz, was invited to a podcast by the Roofer Marketers to talk about how he started out in the roofing industry, his journey to becoming a top solar roofing contractor, and some of the unique strategies his company employs to succeed.

Learn how Jeremiah Broz went from a roofing novice to a successful business owner in a matter of years, despite some significant challenges.

How Jeremiah Got into Roofing

The success story of Jeremiah Broz is an inspiring one. He started off working in a construction services company. Later he owned two floors covering international franchises and even worked as the youngest vice president for College Pro Painters. Jeremiah was also a part of some re-bath franchises.

It was not too long before Jeremiah realized that his real passion was in roofing. He saw roofers going door to door, and he thought this could be a great opportunity as he could earn good money and spend quality time with his daughters.

Jeremiah took a leap of faith and started a roofing business with his friend in Denver. The setup quickly got busy, but later they had a falling out, and Jeremiah had to start from scratch again.

This time, he went ahead and did everything on his own. He put all his focus into building his company – Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar, where he sold solar products to roofing contractors.

Jeremiah’s Focus on Making Roofing More Efficient

His idea was to change the roofing industry and make it more efficient and greener. He wanted to offer consumers something different; something that enhances their homes and saves them money on their energy bills.

The rise of solar energy and government tax credits gave him the perfect opportunity to do just that. Jeremiah’s business quickly took off. He started getting more and more roofing contractors as clients. Before he knew it, Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar were one of the most well-known solar companies in town.

How Does Jeremiah Distinguish His Business from Others & Offer True Value to His Customers?

When a hailstorm hits and everyone is rushing to get their roof replaced, that’s when Jeremiah shines. His team helps homeowners maximize insurance proceeds and replace their roofs as quickly as possible, all while providing the highest quality workmanship.

What’s best, they do not remove shingles or tear your roof off like most other contractors! Instead, Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar install stone-coated steel right over your old roof, and on top of the steel, they install solar. This protects your home, adds value, and helps you save money on your electric bill.

All this is done after the approval of the HOA and insurance companies to do a layover system.

Jeremiah’s Take on the New Roofing Materials and If They Are Worth the Investment

As the world progresses, so does the roofing industry. New materials are constantly being developed and released, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest and greatest. So, is it worth it to invest in these new materials?

Jeremiah thinks the high initial investment is worth it for the long-term benefits only if the manufacturers warranty their roofs for the same length of time as traditional materials. Additionally, it’s definitely worth the investment if the roofing material can withstand baseball-sized hail.

Of course, there are other factors to consider, such as proper installation to ensure the roof lasts as long as possible.

Learn How Re-Roofing and the Solar Installation Process Work Together in Case of Storm Damage

Jeremiah believes in assessing each roof on a case-by-case basis to determine the extent of storm damage. He understands what the homeowner goes through when their home is damaged. This is where Jeremiah’s experience and expertise in the roofing industry come into play. He can help homeowners navigate their options and make the best decision for their homes.

The process of not removing the old roof and installing stone-coated steel on top of the old roof is the best way to go. The weight of the stone-coated steel will hold the old roof in place and give the home the strength it needs to withstand high winds and hails.

In addition, Jeremiah recommends installing solar to help offset energy costs. Solar panels can be installed on top of the new roof, providing a further layer of protection for the home.

In short, the tax credit that comes with a solar installation, the insurance proceeds from having a new roof, and the financing available for both make this an ideal time to invest in solar for your home. This is how Jeremiah brings value to his clients.

Do the Changes in Tax Credits in the Upcoming Year Have You Thinking About Solar? Don’t Worry! Jeremiah Has It All Sorted Out.

The tax credit, which is 26% right now, will shrink to 22% next year and will diminish in a few years. But when you finance the solar options, you have dealer fees – a closing cost for a mortgage. This dealer fee for the longest programs is, ironically, 26%, the same as the federal tax credit, i.e., 26%.

So, if the dealer fee and the federal tax credit stabilize at 26%, you have no net change!

What Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar Guarantees

  • They warranty your property for 25 years.
  • They guarantee that the solar system will produce the same amount of energy that they promise.
  • They guarantee that when they redo your roof, it will not leak.
  • They will always have your back, and you can rely on them to come out and do inspections, check your invertors and equipment, and ensure you’re getting what you need out of your solar system.
  • They are also realigning their sales commission. Instead of the customer paying their salespeople, they have figured out how to give it back to the customer and then back into a service program for 25 years.

This is what Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar are all about. They own your roofs and will maintain them for the next 25 years.

The Concept & Benefits of the 25-Year Subscription Service Model for Roofs

At times, various accidents leave your roofing in shambles, and often this is not covered by your insurance or by the roofing company’s warranty.

This is where the 25-year subscription service comes into play, as Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar will be there to fix your roof and have it running like new in no time. What’s best, you won’t even have to spend anything but still have that sense of security that the roof and the solar are entirely taken care of.

Jeremiah also discusses the 18-point inspection checklist that the company uses to make sure that a roof is in good condition.

The checklist includes checking for signs of failure on a roof, flashing, pipe collars, trimming, and more. They also ensure the critter guards are in place and effective and that the gutters are draining correctly.

In addition, their team is proactive in communicating with customers whenever something needs to be addressed. They perform bi-annual inspections every two years to prevent any problems and ensure their customers are always in the loop.

Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar provide a PDF file with the 18-point inspection pictures to support their findings. They also take the time to explain everything in detail, so there are no surprises.

They also provide windows, mods, gutter, and solar panel cleaning services at a fraction of the cost to help keep your home in top condition.

Their goal is to serve their community with the best possible service, and they are up for any challenge.

How Jeremiah Is Calling on All Roofing Companies/Contractors to Become a Part of the Solar Revolution in the Roofing Industry

Jeremiah Broz wants roofing companies to have their employees install solar. He wants to teach them how to recruit, hire and train solar labor, put them on their payrolls, and orchestrate the logistics of solar installation.

Jeremiah plans to partner up on the procurement side and help out by procuring products, suitable inverters, optimizers, panels, racking, railing, licensing, permitting, and design. The roofing company will also learn how to market, sell and install. In addition, they will serve their customers for 25 years – that’s a significant part of the program.

What Does All This Mean for the Homeowners?

Jeremiah sees the potential for solar to be a game-changer for the roofing industry. At the same time, it also brings value to the customer.

When a roofer is also a solar installer, they can offer their customers a complete solution for their energy needs. They are also liable and accountable for any damage during the installation process.

This way, there is no finger-pointing if something goes wrong, and the consumer can enjoy the benefits of solar without any worries.

Why Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar Is the Win-Win Option for All?

Energy Advantage Roofing and Solar provides solar installations and roofing services so their customers can get the best of both worlds. They are available for their customers whenever they need them and are always ready to help.

When discussing partnerships with our roofing companies, Jeremiah says, “In any partnership, my philosophy is always like I don’t care about the contract of the term of how we are obliged to one another. I want to make sure that my partners have a good value proposition that makes it worthwhile for both of us to monetize this relationship while not robbing who’s paying the bill – the community”.

This is the grand vision of Jeremiah Broz, and he’s not stopping anytime soon.
