I think I have something you will be interested in. General Electric developed a coating that goes over a warn out flat roof that makes it twice as strong as when your roof was brand-new, it has more than double the longevity it originally had, it has a better warranty and, best of all, it is A FRACTION THE COST. In short, you get a roof that is far better than brand new, but cost significantly less. If you have any interest, let me know and I will send you some information. Thank you.

David Johnson has been involved in general construction since age 15. At age 32, he started his first
company called Johnson & Bateman Construction which specialized in purchasing properties for
relocation, refurbishment and resale. In 1993 (at age 36), became the CEO/President of Eagle
Construction and Development, Inc. The company was formed in California just a few months prior to
the Northridge Earthquake. This became Mr. Johnson’s introduction to property insurance. The company
quickly became a preferred vendor for many of the major carriers and conducted both commercial and
residential earthquake repairs, as well as non-insurance related earthquake retrofit projects. The largest
included the retrofit of a fourteen story high rise building.
During this time Mr. Johnson worked closely with engineers and other expert witness consultants which
opened the doors to learning the trade procedures for forensic evaluations. Later carriers began asking
for consultation reports which opened the doors to working as a consultant on hundreds of claims.
Occasionally some of these claim had suits filed against the carriers. When that occurred, Mr. Johnson
was named as an expert witness, however, all of those suits settled before trial. Over time the company
branched out into emergency services, mold abatement and other aspects of insurance restoration,
particularly in fire and flood claims.
Starting in 2004 the Gulf States were impacted by several significant hurricanes and Mr. Johnson was
asked to join a team of specialist on many of the more significant claims. The trip was intended to last
over the summer but ended up lasting three years where Mr. Johnson was involved in settling hundreds
of claims. In 2007 the team was finally dissolved and Mr. Johnson moved to the Austin, TX area. There
he began working as a construction project manager and over the next year or so coordinated the
construction on several larger commercial buildings for Jamail and Smith Construction and Bonnet Grant
Construction. He also performed some insurance related work for Lone Star Roofing.
In 2009 Mr. Johnson formed Alpha Insurance Trade Association, a non-profit trade association of
insurance claim specialist that work primarily assist insured’s. As CEO and President, his primary duties
include training members of the association working in the insurance restoration and public adjusting
industries. The association is geared toward individual business who benefit from the networking
opportunities found in a trade association style environment.
Since the establishment of this association Mr. Johnson has once again become involved in claims as an
insurance consultant, adjuster, risk manager and expert witness work, only this time on the side of the
insured. Since the association was established in 2009 he has served insured’s and member associates in
over a thousand claims. Several legal firms have used his services and hailed his consultation reports as
the best they have seen in the industry. Regarding actual plaintiff suits filed against the carrier, the
dozen or so that Mr. Johnson has been involved with have all settled prior to going to court.
