LET US HELP YOU PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT BY EXTENDING THE LIFE OF YOUR ROOF
Common sense tells you that anything exposed to the elements needs periodic maintenance, even concrete and steel. Surely a roof membrane requires no less attention. Your major investment in your roof should be protected by Gunter Construction Roofing, Inc.'s (GCRI) approach to roofing through our PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.
Why a PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM? In our experience, roofs that fail within ten to fifteen years could have lasted significantly longer...and would have, given proper inspections and repairs on a programmed basis. Without that care, premature failure is predictable.
Aging begins the moment a roof is completed. The roof's life cycle depends on the construction and type of materials used in the roof assembly. The life cycle is influenced by rain, snow, cold, heat, and ultra-violet attack by the elements. Even more importantly, the roof's life is affected by physical damage from rooftop traffic, improper flashings/repairs installed by others, roof alterations, and inadequate drainage. All roofs have this in common: when moisture penetration is spotted early, minor repairs can prevent severe problems from occurring at a later date. Programmed preventive maintenance will yield long term savings by slowing down the deterioration rate of roofing systems.
Even with newly warranted roofs, implementing a PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM could be a cost-effective management tool. Right from the start, you can protect your investment and assure yourself of every year of service life you contracted for...and more!
Our PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM's semi-annual inspections and reports on environmental and physical damage to your roof will be a professional assessment designed to identify those potential sources of future problems. If the roof was installed either by GCRI or someone other than GCRI and is still under warranty, our report will provide a basis not only for maintenance not covered by such warranty, but also for determining needed warranty repair service before a minor problem turns into a major one.
This will also help protect you and your tenants from costly interior damages.
If your roof is covered by a manufacturer's warranty, GCRI can work with you and the manufacturer to determine what exactly is covered and what may not be included. Our PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM can help you extend the life expectancy of your new roof considerably beyond the manufacturer's warranty period.
THE INTITIAL EVALUATION Upon your approval, A GCRI Service Technician will document a detailed· analysis of your complete roofing system, including roof related accessories and contiguous construction. This evaluation will be provided for your review, along with a roof drawing, and applicable photo's showing various roof conditions in a Roof Condition Report. At this time you will also be furnished with a detailed proposal with any costs for any repairs necessary to bring the roof up to the required level for our PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.
THE SEMI-ANNUAL INSPECTION Once enrolled in our PREVENTIVE MAINTANCE PROGRAM, you will receive the proper semi-annual care and maintenance you need. Twice per year our Service Technicians will make a comprehensive survey of the total roofing system, including roof related accessories and contiguous construction.
THE REPORT AND SERVICES After each inspection, you will be furnished with a written Roof Condition Report covering the general condition of your roof. GCRI's trained Service Technician's will remove debris from the roof and drainage systems and make repairs to correct deficiencies discovered during the inspection, which if left unresolved may develop into costly problems. When indicated by the condition of your roof or upon your request, we will also provide a proposal for re-roofing. This will include a recommendation for materials and systems along with the projected costs.
THE GUARANTEE In addition to the PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM service as previously outlined, GCRI will repair, free of cost leakage through the roof during the term of the contract resulting from normal wear and tear or weathering with the exception of:
- Natural disasters such as high winds, hail, flood, lightning, etc.
- Settlements, cracking, warping, or deflection of the roof deck, walls or parapets
- Accidents, vandalism, or excessive roof traffic
- Abuse from chemicals, owners, tenants or other trades
Our full-time, professional Service Technicians will provide this guarantee service on a priority basis. In addition, we have a 24-hour emergency response service to meet your high priority needs. To engage this service all you have to do is call our regular office phone number, press 5 for emergency (after hours), and leave your name, number, and a detailed message and our on call technician will respond to you within the hour.
GCRl's liability is expressly limited to repairs of roofing and related work. GCRI expressly excludes liability for any re-roofing, consequential damage to building or contents, or loss of use of the facilities.
THE COST Programmed preventive maintenance costs a little and saves a lot. The fee for this program can be as low as $600.00 per year. Your actual costs will be determined and based on the size, roof system, details/complexity, and trash and debris on roof and in drainage areas. Contracts are written for a one-year period and will continue from year to year until terminated (unless otherwise specified). Either party may cancel this agreement by giving written notice thirty (30) days prior to anniversary date. Should you decide not to enter the program after receipt of the initial evaluation, you will be billed for its preparation at a predetermined, agreed upon price.
