Once Sentry has been hired to construct a new roof, we will:
Put safety first
Sentry Roof’s EMR (safety modifier) is a testament to the quality of our training. We have an in-house safety department lead by an OSHA 500 certified trainer who runs a year-round training program. Each Sentry Roof crew member is OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 certified, and Red Cross certified in First Aid/CPR/AED. We include our EMR and certification information in our prequalification statement. We also have who conduct random safety inspections of our job sites — it’s very effective.
Plan and meet schedules
Our project manager oversees crews of five to 15 members, depending on the size of the project. Once a crew is assigned to a project the same crew will work on it from start to finish, with only exception being when different crews are needed for different phases of the project — for example, roofing construction and sheet metal installation are different skill sets. Sentry takes great care to assign crew that are well-suited for the type and scope of each project. Unlike other roofing contractors, most of our crew have been part of the Sentry family for many years so we know them well and can match them to projects successfully.
Follow best practices on the job and in the back office
Sentry managers, crew and office staff are hard-working, conscientious, and follow the project requirements to the most minute detail. We submit reports at the end of each day through our online reporting platform. This way GCs can review each day’s progress and have a running log of the entire roof construction project, including who was on site, what they did, how long it took, and any issues that came up. We include photos. We also submit closeout paperwork promptly so GCs don’t have to come looking for it.
Keep the project on budget
We stand by the estimate we submit to the CG. We use the information recorded in our online reporting platform to inform our weekly review meetings on project costs and schedules. Sentry believes it is our responsibility to deliver on time and on budget, and unless there are unforeseen circumstances that arise after the bid is submitted, any errors in estimating the project are on us.
