Are you looking for a worry-free experience with your roofing project? If the answer is yes, then contractor selection is critical. How your roofing contractor handles safety both on and off the job site will determine your peace of mind with your repair or re-roof.
Safety starts with the training of the crews. Do the crews have ongoing safety training? Are they being trained on Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) guidelines, first aid and CPR along with all the proper procedures and use of all safety equipment on the job site? If crew members are properly trained then you will have a safe and compliant environment.
What about the equipment and safety precautions on the roof. Are there proper warning line flags or guardrails around the perimeter of the building’s roof? Are all openings and skylights covered and properly marked? In addition to identifying these items, all crew members should be using and wearing the appropriate fall protection equipment such as fall carts, roof anchors, self-retracting lifelines, rope grabs, harnesses and lanyards. If the crew members feel safe, they can focus on the workmanship of your roof.
In addition to training and equipment, focus on how your contractor communicates their safety plans to you. A safety plan should be implemented and communicated to all parties before any work begins. The safety plan should be a comprehensive approach that is tailored to your specific needs and local requirements. It should outline the safety standards of the contractor, procedures that will be used onsite, communication plans and the contractor’s safety record such as their safety incident rating.
Overall, be sure your contractor is doing everything possible to create a safe and compliant work environment. This should have minimal business disruption to you and will ensure everyone goes home safe at the end of the day.

If you have two or more buildings within your portfolio then this program is for you! CentiMark’s Portfolio Management Program will help you maximize the value and life of your roofing assets. It will help you determine how and when to invest your roofing dollars so you don’t re-roof too early or too late. Think of it as forecasting your spend.
Here is how the program works:
- 1. Evaluation
CentiMark will conduct thorough Asset Alert evaluations of your roofs by section. Along with the evaluations you will receive a safety audit and roof energy audit. Once these have been completed you will receive a full report with photos and recommendations for your roof. At the end of the report, each section will be rated based on the condition which will help drive future proposals, budgets and timing of any needed work.
- 2. Review
We will sit down with you to review the roof section reports and recommended action plans. In order to maximize the life of your roof, we will review ongoing maintenance and future evaluations that will be needed as your roof ages.
- 3. Implementation
The final step is the scheduling and implementation of the projects. This will include getting you set up with our customer service program and online asset management tool - MyCentiMark.com.
In addition to these three steps, there are additional services that can be included as part of your Portfolio Management Program. You are able to customize this program based on your unique needs. In the end, you will know your roofs, their needs and how to budget and schedule the projects to get the most out of your spend while maximizing the life of your assets.
