We can also advocate for you during transactions. Whether you’re buying or selling a property, you can bring us in to make your case about the roofing aspects of your transaction.
Our five business services related to roof asset management include:
Advice based on your business priorities.
Helping you plan for the future is one of the key benefits of establishing a relationship with Sentry Roof Services. When our team understands your goals, such as how long you want to hold a particular property or when you would like to do major renovations, we can provide valuable feedback that can impact and benefit your entire planning process.
For example, it may be worthwhile to install a new roof now so it’s under warranty for a sale, or it may be a wiser investment to make some repairs or improvements now but hold off on major work. If you are responsible for additional properties, planning for those buildings should be included in your overall plan as well.
We have partnered with dozens of customers, including major real estate holding companies, to develop informed, practical and successful strategic plans.
Situational analysis of your roof to help you understand the facts.
A Sentry Roof Services analysis includes a physical inspection of your roof and a series of photos for documentation.
Based on your priorities, we will determine what your roof currently needs: cleaning up and caulking, minor repairs, repairs that include cutting out and replacing problem areas before they let water into your system, or other types of services. Sentry Roof Services is highly skilled at evaluating any kind of commercial roofing system, no matter how complex.
Sometimes looking at the surface of your roof isn’t enough, however — you may need to know what’s underneath so you can understand the actual strength of your roof and other issues related to wear and tear. In these situations, we will test the materials using one of several non-destructive techniques, such as infrared photography, or by using a core cut to measure the actual strength of your roof through lab testing. Lab tests look for asbestos, the condition of each roof layer, and the method by which the roof was attached.
Written document describing the condition of your roof.
A Sentry Roof Services report can be as simple as a letter or as detailed as a line-item evaluation with recommendations — it depends on your needs and objectives. We provide accurate, high-quality reports to:
- Develop a cost-effective roof maintenance program
- Plan and forecast for the future
- Report to upper management
- Inform asset management decisions
- Prepare your roof for the sale of your property
- Negotiate a purchase
- Account to out-of-state property owners on a regular basis
In addition, Sentry Roof Services can help you respond if you are presented with a roof report about building that you might buy or a report from a potential buyer regarding your own roof.
Roof evaluation of a property you might buy.
Another type of reporting is about the roof of a building you might buy. This report can be critical to your negotiations and decision making.
Our customers rely on our professional opinion for insights they wouldn’t already have, and some have been partnering with us in this capacity for more than 15 years. We will gladly discuss how we can help you if you are a buying a property even if we haven’t yet worked together on a roofing project.
We deliver this service in a way that can be much more cost-effective and streamlined that working with a roofing consultant.
Combination of factual analysis, your goals and our experience.
Sentry Roof Services works closely with you to determine the costs of the roofing services you need to make sure your roof does its job. This includes short-term activities such as preventative maintenance work and repairs, and long-term activities such as replacing an old roof or building a new roof on a new property.
No one likes expensive surprises and the more accurate your forecasting, the more successful your overall plan.
By partnering with you proactively on your budgeting process and providing the documentation you need each step of the way, we help you stay on track financially and feel confident that your roof management is under control. And since documentation is always on file, including photos, you have complete, detailed records that you can consult when making decisions down the road as well.
