Are you prepared for the snow this year?
Snow accumulation on your roof can be dangerous and cause extensive damage if not dealt with properly. Be proactive this winter with a rooftop snow monitoring and removal plan.
Our Snow Monitoring Program combines state-of-the-art equipment with our trusted snow removal services to provide you with a stress-free removal experience. Benefit from an unparalleled monitoring program that will determine when and where removal is necessary on your roof, before the weight load becomes a concern.
Your roof is monitored by lightweight, wireless and solar-powered monitors that can be installed by a CentiMark service crew within minutes. As they are monitoring your roof, they are recording data that can be easily exported for analysis and depiction of snow loads over time. Through the analysis of this real-time data, you can customize alert levels and set automatic alarms tailored to your building and the amount of weight that has accumulated.
Once the snow on your roof reaches a certain weight load, you’ll be alerted and so will we. We will then come out to remove the snow on your roof safely and efficiently with our trusted removal services. Save money by removing the snow only when necessary, prevent any damage to your roof and rest easy knowing that the load and depth of your rooftop snow accumulation is being monitored at all times.
For priority scheduling after the winter storms, we recommend signing up for our Snow Removal Plan. To ensure proper safety and removal of the snow from your roof, our crews take the following steps:
- Underdeck inspection paying attention for deflection
- Place flag markers to identify skylights and other projections before removing snow
- Provide clear passage to all drains
- Clear all roof units, vents and gutters
- Special attention to snowdrift areas (parapet and firewalls, penthouses and elevation changes)
Mitigate risk, safety hazards and know that we have your back before, during and after the snow falls.
Harsh winter weather can be detrimental to your commercial roof - even newer ones. From snow, ice and freezing temperatures to high winds and heavy rains, your roof can experience a variety of weather conditions.
Harsh weather can lead to damage such as flashing failure, compromised edge details and blocked drains, gutters and downspouts. All of these can result in damage to your roof causing leaks or water infiltration into your building.
If you’re not sure whether your roof has sustained any damage, we recommend scheduling an inspection to develop an understanding of the condition of your roof to determine if any maintenance or repairs are needed.
An inspection will help identify any problems, allowing you to properly prepare for the months ahead and minimize unnecessary damage or leaks. We will provide you with a written report, photos and any repair or replacement recommendations. From there, we will work with you to develop the best plan of action for your individual roof based on the condition and the needs of your business.
Set your roof up for success by knowing the condition after any weather events. You’ll be able to keep smaller issues at bay all while ensuring that your roof is continuing to protect your business.
Don’t let winter keep you from knowing the condition of your roof!
CentiMark’s 3D Virtual Site Assessment program is the ideal way to gain roof knowledge from the comforts of your home or office. Utilizing drones with high definition, infrared, thermal imaging capabilities, our associates will be able to safely obtain the necessary information when inspecting not only your roof, but your entire facility.
Items that can be audited using our drone technology:
- Parking lots
- Security fence lines
- Site and property development
- Windows and doors
- Ammonia, gas and electrical lines
- Electrical panels
- Facility safety
- Weather damage
All of these items can be safely inspected, while simultaneously adhering to social distancing guidelines and minimizing the need for in-person access to your facility. Based on our findings, we can make recommendations for any repairs that may be needed.
Plus, our drone technology provides the centralization of all of your data. You'll have 24/7 online access to a database that showcases all of the structures in your building envelope. This data is captured in 4K high-definition along with angled views and 360-degree image captures, providing a spectacularly detailed and accurate overview of your property. This unprecedented program will now allow you to not only make educated budgeting and capital spending decisions, but it will help you become proactive when addressing your roof. This will ultimately help you keep smaller issues at bay and avoid any unforeseen roofing costs in the future.
Rain or shine, warm or cold, don’t let the weather keep you from getting your roof properly inspected or serviced.
Want to increase the traction on your concrete or coated floors to prevent slip and fall accidents this winter? SaltGuard may be the solution for you. SaltGuard helps to protect your surfaces from the harsh winter chemicals used to melt snow in parking lots and on sidewalks.
SaltGuard is a solvent-based water repellent and chloride screen for hard surfaces. This solution can be added to any interior or exterior concrete (walkways, sidewalks, parking lots and any exposed concrete) or hard surface floors to protect against water and salt damage. Not only does it add an extra layer of protection to your surfaces, but it helps protect against damage from salt that gets tracked in from the outside during winter.
Don’t forget, there are many other ways to ensure your floors are as safe as possible during the winter. This can include adding walk-off mats, yellow safety stripes and removing trip hazards from both inside and outside areas. We also recommend a floor safety inspection to ensure that your floors are in good condition and to determine if there are any repairs that need to be made.
Keep your employees and customers safe and minimize damage to your floors this winter. Staying on top of your flooring needs will be a cost savings and advantage to you and your business in the long run.
