Schedule Your Inspection Today-
A Roof Top Assessment is important to add to the list of items to do this Fall. An assessment keeps proper inventory of your roof and may prevent unforeseen complications, especially as inclement weather approaches. Our goal is to present you with a variety of options and fresh possibilities for extending the life of your roof. We have repair solutions that can help you delay installing a costly new roof. Regardless, you will receive a non-bias assessment of roof condition along with action steps for avoiding damage and minimizing cost.
Call and schedule your roof inspection with us today! Visit our website for more information.
Safe + Sound Week
At CEI, we value keeping our workers safe and healthy on the job and making sure they go home to their families every day. That’s why CEI is participating in Safe + Sound Week, August 13-19, 2018.
Safe + Sound Week is a nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs in workplaces that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards.
About 7 years ago, CEI decided that they were going to add a full-time Safety Director to their team. This was the beginning of the Safety Department. In 2016, they created the Safety Manager position. At CEI, we always met our safety requirements but in 2011 we decided that as a company we wanted to excel at safety. to have a safe job site and overall workplace it involves everyone being apart of the Safety Department. When it comes to this department, everyone must focus on the details to keep our projects safe and quality for our customers!
During Safe + Sound Week, we will show our commitment to safety by sharing information about our safety department and articles on safety through our blog/social media. These are designed to raise awareness of workplace safety and highlight the hard work that CEI’s crews and staff put into reaching our safety goals!
Safety is all about details! When details are focused on we produce a better, safer and more efficient job. When you focus on the details ahead of time then they won’t slow you down later. This has been and continues to be the focus of our Safety Department. CEI safety team is holding themselves to higher standards, working on a constant pursuit towards excellence. Their overall goal is always to create a safer work environment for all CEI employees.

CEI Group has earned a reputation as one of the country’s most progressive roofing firms. They pioneered single ply roofs in the late 70’s and 80’s, were one of the first roofing companies to maintain their own sheet metal shop, and today, they are leading the way in green roofing projects, sheet metal, and composite wall panel projects.
As a union-shop, CEI is also known for their trade craftsmanship. Some of the lost art and techniques for working on architecturally-challenging or historical elements have been preserved and passed down from veteran roofing pros.
CEI customers appreciate the company’s disciplined project management, communication during the project, and ability to consistently meet challenging deadlines.

Every month we host a photo of the month. All of the photos are taken and sent in by our staff. This month we focused on the efforts of our safety department. Our photo of the month came from one of the monthly safety meetings that we have at CEI. We get together all of our field staff and some of our office staff to discuss various safety measures.
Proactively maintained roofs last an average of 8 more years than reactively maintained roofs.
Annual roof maintenance cost only 1% to 3% of the cost of a commercial roof replacement.
Building owners and facility managers who inspected and repaired their roofs routinely were able to identify potential problems before they happened. As a result, they spent an average of only 14¢ per square foot annually for maintenance. On the other hand, owners and managers who reacted to problems spent an average of 25¢ per square foot annually.
How can you proactively maintain?
Schedule a fall and spring inspection. We have maintenance and inspection programs that are designed to help your roof last longer.
You can learn more about our maintenance programs at ceigroupllc.com
The weather is going to be getting extremely hot in the upcoming month. Being informed on how to properly work in the heat is more than important. The weather in the following weeks is looking to reach record high’s. Roofers are placed out in the sun high up with often times nothing to cool them off, no shade and a hot roof. This can make for an even hotter environment. Being informed about taking care of yourself and your crew in these conditions is important for making a safe and productive job site.

The NRCA’s 2018 National Roofing Week, encourages companies in the roofing industry to give back during the week! CEI chose to host a charity event over the week. Hardhats Against Hunger was CEI’s food drive during National Roofing Week. By teaming up with Gleaner’s Food Bank, CEI collected and donated 450lbs of food and $100 in donations to the food bank in Howell. Gleaners is a local food bank that helps support many food pantries in their effort to help those in need from going hungry. They also host there own pantry that is attached to there food bank warehouse.
Along with that, CEI donated $450 to Weekend Survival Kits, an organization that helps kids in need with meals and groceries to take home for the weekends. $450 equaled meals for five children for a whole year! Too many children rely on free school lunches for there meals during the day. Food shortage can make weekends and summer break hard for students. Weekend Survival Kits helps by providing meal kits to help fill this gap. Weekend survival kits use the support of the food banks to fill their bags and takes monetary donations to pick specific food items needed.
CEI was more than excited to help support both organizations in there missions to help the hungry. National Roofing Week is always a special week that brings the roofing industry together. CEI loves to help give back as a part of the week.
