Jobecca Innovations is a new invention company owned and operated by Joseph & Rebecca Greenway. I, Joseph started my own roofing company (Greenway's Roofing) 20 years ago and I have over 30 years of experienced in Residential and Commercial Roofing.
With that experience in roofing, and using a standard tape to mark off roof at 11 inches, or every double number (example 11, 22, 33, 44) I discovered this standard layout of 11 inches causes all rows on chalk line to be installed on 5-5/8 reveal, and all bonded lines to be installed on 5-3/8 reveal thereby, losing one-quarter inch (1/4) per every 11 inch mark, or every other line layout. Therefore myself and my crew was installing an extra square of shingles on 44 sq. ft. roof (equal to 1 or 2 rows of shingles).
Whereas, I spent my spare time working on a layout design for a tape measure with a 5-5/8 reveal that could help me, save money, save on installation time and mistakes, and minimize waste. Today, I am using the Roofers Tape. I am saving money on materials, labor, and my crew members can layout and chalk roof quickly without mistakes.
I realized this tape is a great tool for Roofers, and an excellent training tool for beginners. Whereby, I ask my wife Rebecca, to partner with me, and thereby, creating a company we call Jobecca Innovations. JBI is now working to set a new trend in the Roofing Industry by presenting this problem, and giving a real tangible solution with the Roofers Tape 5-5/8 layout reveal. Therefore, with one Roofers Tape at a time we are creating change with the installation of 5-5/8 architectural shingles, which are 90 percent of most shingles installed today.
Also, we know shingles are slow to biodegrade in landfills. One of Jobecca Innovations many goals is to provide the roofing industry two ways to save. One in $$ spent on jobs, and two is to Go Green and leave a smaller footprint by using fewer shingles.
