Calling in an Emergency!

We are moving our way into the holiday season with Thanksgiving just a week away. The upcoming season means that more time is going to be spent with family and vacations than in this past summer and fall months. It also means that there is going to be some drastic changes in our weather (at least in Michigan).

 

It could be likely that an unfortunate event could happen with the roof of your building. This can be a stressful event, especially if it’s over the holidays!

CEI is here to help!

We want to make sure that you are covered over the holidays with any emergency you might have. We have an emergency line that our customers can call anytime or day during our holiday hours! Yet, we also want to service you in the best way possible. That’s why we have a couple reminders for you when you give us a call…

Make sure that you mention to our service rep these 4 things over the phone so that we can best serve you in your emergency. 

  • Caller name and phone number
  • Location address
  • On-site contact and phone number
  • Leak Location

As always, have a Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season!

 

What Should I Check on My Building’s Roof?

In between routine inspections, look for the following hazards:
  • Debris-filled or blocked gutters/downspouts/storm drains
  • Damaged or cracked gutters/downspouts/storm drains
  • Standing water or evidence of past standing water on roof deck
  • Accumulation of excessive debris on roof deck
  • Suspected microbial growth or other water damage on roof deck
  • Evidence of bird, rodent, or insect infestation
  • Cracked, damaged, or missing roof deck material
  • Cracked or broken roof deck seals that are creating openings for water intrusion
  • Improperly sealed flashing systems with evidence of water intrusion
  • Cracks, gaps, or other damage to walls
  • Suspected microbial growth on HVAC system components
  • Presence of contaminant sources (fumes, exhaust) near air intake vents
  • Blocked, obstructed, or broken outside air intakes
  • Broken or missing air intake screens on air handling units
  • Excessive noise generated by HVAC system components
  • Open or uncontrolled access to roof

It’s important to take caution when inspecting your roof. Access the roof through a hatch or fixed ladder only and be sure to keep a safe distance from the edge at all times. Contact CEI to make necessary repairs and to help address any additional safety concerns.

Support To Bennett’s Beavers

CEI has been supporting Bennett’s Beavers  for years. This small non-profit organization that creates small wood animals and other pieces for hospitalized children. These wooden figures are then taken to the hospitals and passed out with other art supplies for the kids to decorate. Based locally in Hamburg (not too far from CEI headquarters), they are a great charity doing even better work. As a company, CEI donated a $100 hole sponsorship to there golf outing.
