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.

In February, CEI was called on to the roof of the Art Van Headquarters in Warren, MI. They were asked to do something out of the normal scope of work. CEI service crews took to the roof to help hang a poster in remembrance of Art Van Elslander.
Art Van Elslander was a Detroit icon and the founder of Art Van Furniture. Mr. Van worked his way up from humble beginning to owning one of the nations largest furniture companies. He donated a good portion of his fortune to the city of Detroit. He helped keep alive the Thanksgiving parade and well as feeding the hungry and healing the sick.
Art Van Elslander had a big heart for Detroit and will be missed greatly. CEI was honored to be apart of remembering him with helping hang the banner.
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.

Crazy weather can cause crazy damage. This is not from the recent storms but it show that even without hurricane force winds a roof that is not maintained or installed well can have disastrous effects.Roof Blows off, Definitely not a CEI installed Roof.
