We watch the terrible flooding in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and surrounding states on the news each night and our hearts go out to all of those who have lost their family members, their homes and their businesses.
an interview with David Tredinnick, Senior Project Manager,Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Hurricane season is from June 1 - November 30, 2014
CentiMark (CM): You’ve had some experience with hurricanes, haven’t you? David Tredinnick
(DT): Yes, in my 14 years at CentiMark, I have worked on hurricanes Charlie, Jean, Francis and Wilma.
CM: Can any roof stand up to a hurricane?
DT: No roof is 100% immune to the damages of microbursts, heavy winds or hurricanes. Proper construction and preventative maintenance on the roof system does help with performance. Even roofs that are properly designed and installed can fail in a weather disaster because of flying debris.

Winter Weather: It’s Hard on Your Roof
Let CentiMark help you avoid the consequences of water damage caused by a leaky roof!
Potential Roof Problems:
- Frozen gutters filled with ice can damage your building. Heavy ice from gutters pulls them down and away from the roof creating openings for water entry.
- High winds from winter storms cause roof penetrations to loosen and create openings at the base flashings or punctures. Debris may blow across the roof and cause punctures or tears.
