Have you ever asked yourself when is the best time to start your roofing project? The answer is NOW! Lots of time and planning go into a proper roofing project. This is why we always recommend getting a jump start on your roof work before schedules become full.
Whether it’s roof repair, replacement or just an inspection, getting ahead of peak roof season is always a good idea. This way, you’ll be at the top of the list for scheduling and keep smaller issues at bay before they become bigger problems.
A post-winter roof inspection is a great way for you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the condition of your roof before the summer months arrive. An inspection will help determine whether any repairs or replacement may be needed and provide you with photos, written documentation and recommendations to help keep your roof performing well and your building watertight.
If you have any leaks or damage from the winter weather your building experienced this season, now is a great time to schedule smaller repairs before they turn into larger issues. We can also come out and perform preventative maintenance, roof cleaning and other services to help get your roof back to excellent condition and ready for summer.
If your roof has experienced significant damage this winter, now is a good time to look into roof replacement options. These take time and planning, so a good rule of thumb is to get these scheduled as early as possible.

Your roof is one of the most important assets to your building envelope. It is a huge investment and finding the right contractor to complete your roofing work is imperative to your project. We’ve gathered some key factors to look for when considering a commercial roofing contractor.
It’s important that your roofing contractor can provide you with trustworthy recommendations and has a positive reputation in the industry. This goes a long way in helping you determine the quality of the work you will receive from a roofing company. We have over 52 years of experience and references to provide all of our customers. Our comprehensive understanding of the commercial roofing process and years of experience are just a couple of the reasons why CentiMark is a name you can trust.
Dedication to Safety
Safety should be at the forefront of everything your roofing contractor does. This includes safety inspections, safety training for all employees and the use of rooftop safety equipment and accessories. Your roofing contractor should provide you with a detailed safety plan before any roof work is done. We take safety very seriously. Our top priority is the safety of our customers and employees every time. In fact, CentiMark has an incident rate of 2.16 versus the industry average of 4.4!
The warranties that your roofing contractor provides says a lot about the confidence that the contractor has in their employees and the quality of work they provide their customers. This warranty should cover both workmanship and materials. At CentiMark we provide all of our customers with our Single Source Warranty. This means that you work with us and only us to discuss warranty concerns or set-up 24/7 emergency service. We provide a variety of customizable warranty options backed by our multi-million dollar provision. We’re dedicated to providing you with a peace of mind after every roofing job.
The credibility and stability of your roofing contractor are imperative. Many roofing projects can take an extended period of time to complete. It’s important to have a contractor that you know isn’t going anywhere any time soon. In fact, CentiMark has the highest credit rating - 5A1 - from Dun & Bradstreet. This means you can put your trust in us knowing that you have a partner throughout your roof’s useful life.
The quality of your roofing contractor directly correlates to the quality of your roof. Make sure that you properly vet a contractor before you commit to anything. Keeping these key things in mind for your next roofing project, you’ll be able to trust that you’re working with a roofing contractor that will do the job well, and do the job right.
Whether your building has experienced snow, ice, rain, freezing temperatures or all of the above this winter, we always recommend that you do a full assessment of your building to check on the condition of your roof and floors.
Winter weather can wreak havoc on both your roof and floors. Your roof can be subject to heavy winds and thermal shock that can lead to cracking or other damages to your roof membrane. An accumulation of snow on your roof can lead to ponding and other water drainage issues.
High-traffic areas on your floors can become damaged from salt, sand and slush tracked in from the outside. This can lead to tarnishing, floor abrasions and other issues that can cause damage to your floors or exacerbate existing problems.
Now that we are beginning the transition out of winter, assessing your roof and floors for any needed repairs is a good idea.
An inspection of your roof and floors will include photos, written documentation and recommendations for repair, replacement or useful maintenance products. Not only will an inspection help you to better understand the condition of your building but it can also help you to identify additional services that may be beneficial to your roof and floors.
Get ahead of peak season and avoid the potential scheduling conflicts by having your roof and floors inspected now. By the time summer arrives, your building will be in great shape to handle anything!
