Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc.'s Maintenance Program "We Have You Covered" provides three levels of services for all major roofing systems.
A properly installed and maintained roof can last up to 60% longer than one where you react to roof problems.
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.
Level 1: GVRoofing's Basic Preventative Maintenance Program
Building 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.
Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. provides digital images of areas of concern and the existing roof condition (up to 100 000 sq. ft.). For larger building call for a quote.
