80% of roofs are replaced prematurely each year, millions of square feet of contaminated roofing products go into landfills unnecessarily.
By deferring roof replacement and extending its serviceable life via the Fortis Process, a whole cycle of roof replacement can be removed from landfills and save you significant costs.
THE STEPS IN OUR PROCESS ARE SIMPLE
Fortis assesses membrane condition, flashing condition, leak history, drainage condition, roof age, maintenance status, insulation condition, rooftop traffic, and interior occupancy.
Fortis utilizes nationally recognized independent labs to test for the top six failure characteristics of commercial low-slope roof systems, measured against more than 15 years of control samples:
- Tensile/Tear Strength
- UV Resistance/Heat Aging
- Water Vapor Permeability
- Factory Seam Strength
An electronic report is prepared and presented. Key components of the RCIR include:
- Summary of Roof Data
- Identification of Defects
- Science and Technology Results
- Reconditioning Scope
- Conventional Roof Replacement Comparison
- Proposal with ROI Model
Fortis makes sure your roof is brought up to its rigourous standards so it is guaranteed to perform throughout the warranted roof life. These are not band-aid, low-ball, cosmetic repairs, but rather, thorough and lasting solutions made by a Fortis Certified Contractor. The credentials of these contractors include:
