80% of roofs are replaced prematurely. By extending the life of existing roofs, Fortis reduces the amount of harmful roofing materials filling landfills. In this way, Fortis is a substantial environmental protector.
The problem? The status quo in roofing is creating a ton of unnecessary waste.
Roofing materials have evolved and improved yet manufacturers’ warranties have not kept pace
Re-roofing is stressful to the environment, as millions of square feet of toxic roofing materials are put in landfills unnecessarily every year
Contractors and consultants are routinely wrong about a roof’s long-term performance capabilities yet have no liability
Re-roofing is more than just an expensive and intrusive process that is disruptive to your business. It’s also harming our environment and increasing the carbon footprint of your facility for no good reason.
Green Energy Helps the Environment
A rooftop is a smart place to install solar panels. Unfortunately, they are often installed without regard for the existing roof manufacturer’s warranty. A single mistake can often void the warranty, as well as compromise thermal performance and ruin waterproofing. The logistical and legal issues associated with installing solar PV systems on roofs are complex, and membrane manufacturers often have their own requirements if solar panels are installed. Fortis Warranty can help you navigate the complexities of installing rooftop solar panels so you can avoid a costly misstep. Fortis’ proven track record of industry-changing green solutions can give you better roof performance with immediate, operating, and deferred cash savings.
