What to do in Case of a Weather Event - Both Roofing and Flooring
The main purpose of your roof is to keep water out of your building. Since Mother Nature is typically unpredictable, CentiMark is prepared for most weather conditions on your roof - especially hurricanes, tornadoes, hail and wind.
Weather systems can damage your roof even though proper construction and preventative maintenance typically allow for superior roof performance during adverse conditions. However, rain, hail, thunderstorms, wind, tornadoes, hurricanes and heat are all potential detriments to a roof system.
Many emergency weather situations happen quickly with little, if any, warning. However, with hurricanes, there is often time to prepare. For all weather situations affecting your roof, the best course is to prepare to minimize roof problems and/or roof failure with a Preventative Maintenance Inspection:
- Clean debris from drains
- Check for loose metal flashings
- Remove construction debris
- Investigate roof membranes for possible areas of water infiltration
- Fix failing wall flashings
- Remove equipment such as satellite dishes (in the case of hurricane preparation)
Then, after a storm or weather event, schedule an inspection. Some roof damage - particularly hail damage - may not be detected immediately or by an untrained eye until cracks, leaks or structural damage is detected months later.
In the event of major damage or power failure after a weather event, CentiMark has portable satellites for communications with our customers and our crews along with supplies including job materials for temporary and watertight repairs, generators, gasoline for vehicles, food, water and motorhomes for shelter for our crews who mobilize to provide assistance. Our crews are prepared to get out in the field as quickly as possible to get roofs fixed and our customers back to business.
When severe weather events cause flooding, QuestMark can provide fast floor clean-ups, debris removal and resurfacing of floors in commercial, retail and industrial buildings.
After a commercial building floods, typically the first damage that occurs is to existing floor coverings - tile, carpet, hardwood or linoleum, etc. These floor coverings just cannot take on or absorb water.
QuestMark removes these damaged floor coverings and can install a polished concrete or epoxy system for our customers. QuestMark has the largest fleet of floor removal equipment in the industry. Using our tile removal and planetary grinding machines, these projects can be undertaken in a timely manner.
If more traditional floor coverings are required, QuestMark can remove the damaged floor coverings and prepare the concrete for the installation of the tile, carpet, hardwood or linoleum by another trade vendor.
