Roof preventive maintenance program
We have contracted with our roofers, and they’re going to go out and they’re going to inspect your roof. Why do we do this? For one, it’s free. It’s free to you to go out and have somebody inspect the roof. Empire will not do any work to any roof unless you guys approve.
What are they doing? They’re going out there. They’re going on the roof. They’re checking the roof. Why is this important? Well, one, you get eyes on your property. Somebody else will look at the property. You’ll get a report on your roof, and by doing preventive maintenance; you’ll actually extend the life of the roof. There might be some small challenges with the roof that gets fixed which will prevent bigger issues or a re-roof later on.
Also, over the last few years, we’ve had some hurricanes come through here in Houston. In Dallas, we’ve had some hailstorms. There might be issues with the roof that were not reported by the resident at the time or, maybe the property was vacant, the roof looked good from a bird’s eye view. But maybe there’s actually a claim that can be put in, and maybe you can get a re-roof as an owner of the property with your insurance company because of the damage from the hurricanes or the national disaster.
Basically it’s a free service. It’s going to increase your lifetime of the roof. It’s going to allow you to see if there are any small issues that you can solve and prevent any major issues with the roof.
We’re excited to offer this product to our clients. It’s just one more way that we go above and beyond to help our clients with preventive maintenance and saving some money in the long run.
