RG America Subsidiary Retained by Midwestern Insurance Carrier

The Roofing Group to Conduct Pre-Loss Roof Inspections for Commercial and Multi-Family Properties in Texas

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- (OTC BB: RGMI) -- RG America, Inc. (RGA), a Dallas-based Insurance Restoration Company specializing in recovery, remediation, roofing and re-construction of insurance losses, announced today that its subsidiary, The Roofing Group, has been retained by a large Midwestern based Property and Casualty Insurance Carrier to perform roof inspections prior to this year's storm season. The inspections will be performed on the Carrier's existing Texas portfolio of commercial and multi-family properties with an estimated total value of over $74 million.

The Carrier, like many in the industry, is anticipating an active hail season and has requested a pre-loss roof condition inspection of approximately 150 locations. In addition to the Texas locations, the Carrier is considering expanding inspections to include its Florida locations. In exchange for providing the inspections at a reasonable cost, the Carrier has appointed The Roofing Group as the preferred roofing contractor in the event of hail or wind damage to their portfolio of clients.

"The Roofing Group was selected for this assignment because of its reputation for quality and integrity," commented James Rea, COO of RG America. "The Carrier is also familiar with our stringent underwriting standards and procedures created for the PropertySMART® program, designed to lower risks for commercial and multi-family properties," he added.

The Roofing Group was formed in 2005, in response to heavy demand from its clients for roofing repair and replacement. Through its five operating divisions, the Company continues to capitalize on each division's strengths, efficiencies and profitability. With a broad specialty in the areas of recovery, remediation and reconstruction the Company has established itself as an industry standard for commercial properties that have been affected by severe weather.
