Let’s Explain the Name

The most common question we get is about or name and its genesis. Let’s break it down…

Yes, it is X A P - not Zap.

XAP is the program as homeowner and property managers know the Assurance Program (AP). The X is borrowed from a certain comic book as the contractors who provide the AP are of that next stage of evolution. X is also the holding place for the company name of the provider. Say, for example, Kinderbrook Roofing joined us – they would offer the Kinderook Assurance Program (XAP).

The XAP360 LLC encompasses the components of the program to make it a nation-wide program, to develop new tools (marketing and training), and force the technology to continuously grow to meet market needs.

History Lesson

The Assurance Program was designed for by roofing industry professionals to serve one company operating in the greater Cincinnati area to grow its multi-family footprint. It took several years to develop but once released, it was an instant success. The only drawback that property management companies had was the desire to have an XAP provider in outside hubs and other states to care for entire portfolios. XAP360 was born from the need to expand into a nationwide network of restoration professionals.

Drone solutions were explored in detail until the right partner emerged, Kespry, out of Silicon Valley. With the ultimate piece of technology in place the focus switched to developing the right type of digestible reporting, adding in valuable sales and marketing solutions to help XAP contractor go to market as fast as possible.

Focusing on the Midwest at first quickly spilled over into Eastern Seaboard and as far West as Colorado. Certified providers were sharing the same successes, and a few had some valuable woes to help us course correct.

Becoming a GAF Preferred Partner and making noise at their premiere event, WealthBuilders 2019, was a great accomplishment and partnership. It has brought us more attention, contractor/provider partners, and business partners.

Currently, XAP360 is busy expanding its offerings with the XAP R for residential, developing new tools for our partners to source clients, and developing a dashboard for even more powerful reporting has begun.


The 4 core partners, Joey Michels (Pres), Leo Ruberto (Business Development), Phil Pratt (Executive Vice President), and Ryan Kasmier (Brand Mgmt/Marketing Dev) were responsible for bringing the XAP platforms to market.

The company has expanded with sales, office management, digital marketing, and other helping - none as important that the team at Kespry, XAP360’s core partner.
