A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Failure is NOT an Option!

Wowsers!  Have you seen something like this happen to a building around you?

If your roof fails you, it will ail you in all sorts of awful ways.  First and foremost, a roof cave-in could cause serious injury to people inside the building.  Two, roof failure is a big and expensive mess!  And that’s putting it mildly if your roof fails during a storm.  A wet mess is the worst kind.

What’s more, at the end of the day, the fiscal and possible legal impact of a total failure is likely massive compared to the normal cost of regular, proactive maintenance.  So we at Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing think it makes sense to keep up with necessary repairs.

The start of storm season is a great time to run down a roof maintenance checklist.  For example, are gutters and drains clean and free of debris so large volumes of rain water can quickly drain from your roof?  Have rain and humidity created the perfect storm for mold and associated structural damage?  Has sun exposure shortened the life of roof sealants and membranes?  Have high winds loosened sheet metal flashings and copings?

These are just some of the things that should be evaluated regularly.  To be certain your checklist is complete, rely on the professionals.  At Chamberlin we create customized maintenance programs tailored to each building.  Following a survey, we provide a detailed report citing potential or existing issues, thereby allowing you to take action and stay ahead of a potential catastrophe or premature roof system replacement.

Make sure failure is NOT an option for you, my friend.  Take the necessary steps and precautions with proper maintenance.  A good first step might be to give the folks at Chamberlin a ring.  Just a suggestion.

Until next time, I'll be seeing you around.
