Roof Inspections & Surveys
Just because you have a leak does not mean the roof needs replacing. A detailed inspection by a roofing professional can pin-point leak sources and accurately gauge the extent of any problems. Often a quick repair is all that is needed. In more serious situations, a survey can help determine whether maintenance is justified or a partial or full roof replacement is necessary. In the case of the latter, it can also help determine whether the existing roof must be torn off. Substantial savings may be possible in certain situations where re-roofing can be done without removing the existing roof. From low cost professional visual inspections to the latest in capacitance or infra-red thermography, Lexcan can provide comprehensive information on the current state of your roof. A detailed report is presented to you, complete with photos and recommendations.
Multiple Building Roof Management
If you are responsible for the maintenance of several buildings you may find yourself overwhelmed by everything that you have to look after. Roofing may only be one facet of your responsibilities but it can be a daunting one indeed! Lexcan's new Roof Management Database System can now help you simplify the task of multi-roof management considerably. After conducting detailed surveys of your roofing inventory, the gathered information is entered into Lexcan's customized roof management database. From there, roofs (or roof sections) can be prioritized for maintenance or re-roofing, based on their current state and expected remaining service life. A long term plan might then be developed that balances roofing maintenance and re-roofing expenditures over multiple years. Thousands of dollars in unnecessary costs (i.e.: damage from leaks, plant shutdowns or the extra cost of emergency repairs during inclement weather) can be saved by carefully budgeting and timing roof repairs instead of jumping from one unforeseen emergency expenditure to another.
Now, with Lexcan's Roof Management database, complete detailed information (including photos) on any surveyed area is only the click of a “mouse” away.
The service life of many roofs can often be extended with cost effective annual maintenance. If this is a viable option, Lexcan will recommend the type and extent of maintenance that ought to be done, provide estimates for the cost and, if desired, arrange for periodic maintenance using approved roofing crews.
If a new roof is deemed necessary, the next step is to decide which is the best roofing system. Every roofing system has both positive and negative features. It is therefore crucial to carefully evaluate what is most important for your application before making a selection.
Lexcan offers all the major roofing systems from the traditional built-up roofing to the latest in single ply systems. We will carefully analyze both your performance and your budget requirements. We will then match this to the features of the alternative systems available to arrive at the best roof for your building.
Choosing the best roofing system for your building is only the first step in installing a roof. It is equally important to ensure that a contractor well trained and experienced in the chosen system installs it properly.
This is a process that involves:
• Screening and selecting reputable contractors experienced in the type of roof system decided upon,
• Creating a detailed work specification and related detail drawings to ensure a complete and proper installation,
• Tendering the project and receiving competitive bids,
• Reviewing bids with you and assisting with the awarding of a contract.
• Inspecting the roof as it is installed to ensure conformance to the specification and good roofing practice.
Well experienced in all aspects of the above process, Lexcan can ensure that a project moves quickly and smoothly from its inception through to its completion.
Lexcan backs its roofing systems with the strongest and most comprehensive warranties available in the industry. Different warranty options are available, depending on the type of roofing system being installed.
