Many businesses are opting for QuestMark's polished concrete floor system, known as DiamondQuest, because of lower maintenance costs compared to traditional VCT (vinyl composition tile) flooring. Polished concrete, unlike VCT floors, does not require wax or coatings to maintain its shine. This results in lower lifecycle costs.
Winter’s harsh conditions and extreme cold can wreak havoc on a roof. These conditions can manifest into leaks and accelerate roof failures if they are ignored.
Repairing problem areas and extending the life of the roof is the very essence of CentiMark’s Preventative Maintenance Program.
Today, property owners need to explore creative methods to both understand the current condition of their buildings, determine the scope of work that has the greatest value - be it repair or re-roofing – and, most importantly, how to fund the project.

While snow removal may be necessary to prevent overloading and collapse or to clear off space for construction or repairs, it also exposes workers to a number of risks.
Employees might need to climb directly onto the roof and use equipment such as shovels, snow rakes, snow blowers and ladders.

At CentiMark, we re-roof commercial and industrial flat roofs throughout North America. We install roof systems including: Thermoplastics (TPO, PVC), EPDM (rubber), modified bitumen, coatings, metal, spray polyurethane foam and BUR (built-up roofing).
Roofing decisions include considerations of building use, climate and budget.
Roofs must withstand more attacks from nature than any other building component. These factors include: large temperature range of performance, thermal shock (large temperature swings), solar radiation (UV and heat), rain, snow, airborne pollutants, fungal attacks and wind forces.

The word “Mark” in CentiMark is specific to our company’s mark on the commercial and industrial re-roofing industry. In the 1970s, CentiMark Founder, Chairman & CEO Edward B. Dunlap instituted the CentiMark Single Source roofing warranty for both workmanship and materials. Tired of the disputes between workmanship (CentiMark) and materials (manufacturers), CentiMark’s Single Source warranty was a customer-service initiative that has stood the test of time.
Saving money is always a good thing - especially when joint fill is a one-time expense for your commercial, industrial or retail concrete floors.
What is joint fill? It’s a rigid material that supports the edge of the joint in areas where there is heavy foot or machine traffic. You want to fill the joints with the product when the concrete is new and the 90 degree angles are crisp.
CentiMark is the largest commercial and industrial roofing contractor in North America. We specialize in flat roofs. Typically, we install white TPO roofs or black EPDM roofs or white spray polyurethane foam roofs.
Although CentiMark is not a residential roofing contractor, we thought this press release on Baby Boomers influence on residential roofing was really funny. As baby boomers age, they are even influencing the color of residential roofs!
