Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. provides various services to help maintain and protect your building and prolong the life of your roof. We work all year round to install or repair roofs in Cambridge, Brantford and the surrounding area. In fact, some roofs are better to install in the cold weather. The shield on the left symbolizes our commitment to our customers, both in terms of protecting their roof but also in protecting their investment. Simply put, maintenance programs reap returns for our customers both in money saved and in adding to the life span of the roof.
What Do Vehicles and Roofs Have in Common?
The average life of a vehicle is 8 years/240 000 km but it is 15 years/380 000 km if properly maintained.
The average life expectancy of a roof is 10-20 years but it is 15-25 years if properly installed and maintained.
Maintain your vehicle and it lasts longer. Maintain your roof and it also lasts longer. Maintenance and longevity are directly related. What does this mean? In all probability the vehicle owner has paid off the car in ten years or less. Similarly, the building owner often has their roof paid off and is building a new fund for the next roof in that 10-20 year period. The maintained vehicle's owner has only maintenance to pay for over that last five years as does the maintained building's owner. This saving often shows a 500% return on the investment in a maintenance program.
Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc.'s Maintenance Program "We Have You Covered" provides three levels of services for all major roofing systems.
Level 1: Evaluation
By-yearly inspections are carried out by our trained and experienced professional roofers. Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. works with the client to generate a list of elements to be checked on and around the roof and inside the building. A comprehensive report is provided profiling the state of the roof, future repair estimates and recommendations. While twice a year evaluations are recommended, they should also be considered after major weather events such as heavy rains, major winds and storms.
Over 90% of premature roof system failures and leaks occur at the roof details such as parapets, drains, protrusions and metal edging. An inspection can help locate these possible problems before they lead to premature roof failures.
Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. provides digital images of areas of concern and the existing roof condition. Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. includes the following areas in their inspection list to which items can be added or removed:
Level 2: Roof Maintenance Program
Every roof and roofing system is different. Therefore, every Maintenance Program Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc.'s creates is designed for a specific roof. Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. begins with a list of common elements to which items are added and removed to reflect that specific roof. Common items on the list may include:
Level 3: Repairs
Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. believes in a find and repair early approach to increasing the life of a roof, thus reducing the need for emergency repairs. Hidden leaks produce hidden damage. While Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. can make repairs to the roofing surfaces, maintenance programs cannot restore a neglected roof to new condition.
Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. provides qualified roofing repairs authorized by the roofing system manufactures that include:
All leaks can lead to the development of mould growth and affect the building's air quality.
