Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT WILL BI-STATE'S ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM DO FOR ME THAT MY OWN MAINTENANCE PEOPLE WON'T DO?
Most commercial building maintenance staffs are very good at their work. But the advanced synthetic membranes used in most commercial roof systems today require expert maintenance from a well-trained roof systems professional. In many instances, manufacturer's warranties are actually voided by routine maintenance performed with the best of intentions by a building owner's maintenance staff or a contract maintenance crew. If something serious goes wrong, your roof system warranty can be worth tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to you. Bi-State's Roof Maintenance Program assures that your warranty-and your roof-remain intact.
MY BUILDING HAS SEVERAL GENERATIONS OF ROOFING MATERIAL ON IT NOW, AND I'VE BEEN HAVING MINOR PROBLEMS FOR TWO YEARS. DOES THE ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM COVER THIS KIND OF SITUATION?
Yes. Bi-State's thermal detection and core sampling equipment-and our long experience with roof system analysis-enable us to locate and correct problems even when multiple layers of roof system are in place.
IS THERE A FEE FOR THE INITIAL INSPECTION AND PROGRAM COST ESTIMATE?
A modest initial inspection fee is charged only if you decide not to purchase the Roof Maintenance Program.
HOW MUCH DOES THE ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM COST?
For most building owners and managers, fees for Bi-State's Roof Maintenance Program are calculated for each roof on a cents-per-square-foot basis. The actual amount depends not only on the size of your roof and its condition, but also on the amount and type of roof-mounted equipment and foot traffic. Most owners find the fees surprisingly reasonable.
HOW DO I GET MY BUILDING COVERED BY BI-STATE'S ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM?
Just give us a call. Bi-State Roof Systems will inspect your roof and analyze its condition in detail. You will get a written report with recommendations for any work necessary to bring your roof up to maintainable condition. The Roof Maintenance Program goes into effect as soon as any preliminary repairs are accomplished.
