Improving schools, enriching neighborhoods, providing transformational resources to people in need… these items are not on the agenda of the typical roofing company. But CentiMark is not a typical company. Since 2004, the generous donations of CentiMark Chairman & CEO Edward B. Dunlap have aided Holy Family Institute in helping children and families lead responsible lives and develop healthy and meaningful relationships.
The generosity of CentiMark.. For many years, Ed Dunlap and the employees at CentiMark have helped the Little Sisters of the Poor and our mission to care for the elderly poor of Pittsburgh. A few years back, we were planning our first ever Rock A Thon when our Residents and friends rock in rocking chairs to raise funds to replace an outdated bathtub on one of the nursing units. Our goal was to raise enough for one tub, but in actuality we needed three.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Allegheny County is thrilled to wish the CentiMark Corporation a very Happy 50th Anniversary! The involvement and generous patronage of CentiMark’s Chairman and CEO, Edward B. Dunlap, stretches back 20 years with our agency.
50 years - what a wonderful accomplishment! Congratulations on making a difference to so many people and organizations over your five decades. On behalf of Family Guidance, we want to say thank you for the impact you have made through your generosity and gracious giving.
Winters can be harsh. As difficult as they may be on us, have you ever considered what it does to your garage floor? Over the course of a given winter, how many times do you pull your car into your garage covered with extra moisture, road salt, or other debris that will ultimately end up on the garage floor and shorten the life of the concrete?
2018 is upon us. Many of us now need to operate our business within the budgets that were set at the end of 2017. The real question is how can we get the most out of our roofing budget? What obstacles or unforeseen costs can potentially gobble up your contingency funds?
Technology is being used in CentiMark roofing services to benefit customers in a number of ways. From infrared thermal imaging used to detect moisture captured within a roof to unmanned aircraft (drones) used to enhance inspections.
Every month, North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) receives thank you notes like this one from Tara, a widowed Mom who is working and raising four children:
“You can’t even imagine the panic I felt in the months after my husband died. On top of my own grief and helping my kids work through their grief in their own ways, I began to seriously stress about how I would pay the bills and feed the kids. Not just big bills like the house, but small things like car inspection and school clothes. The programs NHCO has are lifesavers. God bless the donors and volunteers who care about my family and other people who have hit hard times. I met with someone to work out a budget and someone else helped me with a resume. I was able to get full-time work. I even got help with my gas bill when it was sky high. My kids had backpacks for school, some new clothes and shoes for school and even some Christmas gifts. Thank you so much. Thank everyone for me.”
After a city and county ballot initiative passed in Denver, CO, a Denver Green Roof Initiative went into effect January 1, 2018. This affects commercial roofs with a gross floor area greater than 25,000 square feet. The Initiative requires that building owners have a percentage of the roof covered with vegetation (green roof) and/or solar power.
With the cold temperatures the United States (US) and Canada are experiencing it is important to know the effects temperature and winter weather can have on your facility. Understanding the potential impact all this can have on your roof and floors will help you make maintenance and safety decisions that will help prolong your investment and keep your employees and customers safe.
CentiMark founder and CEO, Edward B. Dunlap knows quite a bit about establishing the base for a growing vital corporation from humble roots in 1968. He also realizes the importance of giving back along the way to help those in need. The Early Learning Institute (teli) is so very thankful to have been one of his beneficiaries in supporting our mission to help children with developmental delays.
The frequency of torrential rains and microbursts in much of the United States has increased dramatically since 1958, according to the U.S. National Climate Assessment’s “Climate Change Impacts in the United States”1 which puts large amounts of rain on the roof in very short periods of time. The impact of all this heavy rainfall on roofs can, has been and will continue to be disastrous, especially when roof drainage systems fail.
Congratulations to Ed Dunlap and CentiMark Corporation on your 50th anniversary!
Congratulations to CentiMark on your 50th Anniversary!
Mother Teresa once said, “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” When thinking about these words, one person that comes to mind is Edward B. Dunlap, Chairman & CEO, CentiMark.
Congratulations to CentiMark on your 50th Anniversary!
CentiMark Foundation has been a tremendous friend to NHS since 2006, providing much needed grant funding to help where program resources fall short. In addition, they have generously provided back-to-school supplies and backpacks, gift cards around the Christmas and Easter holidays and so much more. This partnership has afforded the children and adults that we serve with opportunities and choices and has helped them to reach their fullest potential.
Your roof and floors take the brunt of everyday activities and are your building’s first line of defense; make sure you give them the support they need to protect you. Our mission is to keep your building watertight and safe for you, your assets and employees all in concert with your regular business operations. We focus on workmanship and attention to detail. That’s why we back our work up with a $14 million provision for warranty expense.
CentiMark Corporation, QuestMark (a division of CentiMark Corporation) and CentiMark Ltd. (a Canadian subsidiary of CentiMark Corporation) have a tradition of sharing our blessings throughout the year, and especially during this season of Thanksgiving.
What is your rooftop snow removal plan?
Winter can be a harsh season for your roof. In addition to being one of your building’s most valuable assets, your roof can also be one of the most vulnerable.
Unprecedented damage has occurred in the United States and Puerto Rico this year due to extreme weather events with damages estimated in the billions. Though the full extent of the damage is still unclear, price increases and shortages of raw building materials are expected.
In tribute to our QuestMark associates who are veterans, we take great pride in featuring them and we thank them for their service to our country.
