Greg Wilson is CentiMark's most enduring innovator.

I have been working at CentiMark since May 1999 in IT (Information Technology) Department and as SAP Application Manager since 2004.

For me, nothing epitomizes Greg Wilson's leadership more than his role in implementing SAP ERP software at CentiMark in 1998. When companies were scrambling to make their systems work for Y2K (2000), Greg made a bold decision to implement SAP ERP software for CentiMark in early 1998. As we look at current processes within CentiMark now and how it has improved over the last 15 years, his decision has paid off. CentiMark’s Management Team can now get real time information in all areas of business.

Hurricanes - Preparation and Aftermath

Hurricanes - Preparation and Aftermath

 

David Tredinnickan interview with David Tredinnick, Senior Project Manager,Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Hurricane season is from June 1 - November 30, 2014

CentiMark (CM): You’ve had some experience with hurricanes, haven’t you? David Tredinnick
(DT): Yes, in my 14 years at CentiMark, I have worked on hurricanes Charlie, Jean, Francis and Wilma.

 

CM: Can any roof stand up to a hurricane?
DT: No roof is 100% immune to the damages of microbursts, heavy winds or hurricanes. Proper construction and preventative maintenance on the roof system does help with performance. Even roofs that are properly designed and installed can fail in a weather disaster because of flying debris.

Hail Damage To Your Roof

Hail Damage To Your Roof

The mid-Central and mid-South have had numerous hail storms this week with more expected over the weekend. You will need a roof inspection to determine if hail has damaged the roof.

 

Hail & Your Roof - Inspecting and Identifying

Hail is a form of solid precipitation that falls at higher speeds as it grows in size. Hail may fracture or shred the roofing membrane with its irregular, sharp edges.

Hail damage on the roof may go unnoticed until cracks, leaks or other structural damage is detected. Small fractures from hail may not open up for months after a storm and then cause roof leaks.

Winter Weather and Your Roof

Winter Weather and Your Roof

Winter Weather: It’s Hard on Your Roof

Let CentiMark help you avoid the consequences of water damage caused by a leaky roof!

Potential Roof Problems:

  • Frozen gutters filled with ice can damage your building. Heavy ice from gutters pulls them down and away from the roof creating openings for water entry. 
  • High winds from winter storms cause roof penetrations to loosen and create openings at the base flashings or punctures. Debris may blow across the roof and cause punctures or tears.
