The National Roofing Contractor Association recommends periodic inspections of your commercial buildings. At Springfield, we know that a well maintained roof that undergoes periodic inspections will last far longer than one that is ignored. Just like you schedule your annual physical to keep yourself healthy, your commercial roof needs an annual inspection to keep “healthy” too. So with spring approaching, it’s time for all Michigan commercial building owners to plan for your annual roof inspection!!

The #2 irritant of a facility manager is Vendor Warranties!! Calling the vendor when you have a warranty claim can be verying irritating and time consuming for facility managers. Especially when the vendors don’t want to live up to their warranties and make them difficult to understand what’s covered and what’s not. Make sure you when you are getting a quote for new construction, material, equipment, etc, ask for a copy of the warranty and make sure that their provisions are included in the quote that you will both be signing.
Happily, there are vendors out there who represent products with outstanding warranties. The Duro-Last warranty offered by Springfield Commercial Roofing is one of those vendors and make it very painless to process a claim. Check out all of the warranties they offer: Duro-Last warranty list.
Don’t hesitate to give us a call at 231-263-5300 if you have any questions on roof warranties.

We are hearing more and more about Roof Daylighting becoming the new trend for residential and commercial buildings. Springfield specializes in evaluating commercial buildings looking for ways to give our client energy savings. Daylighting is just one of the things we look to suggest if the building environment will benefit from it. The Roofing Contractor magazine recently had an article about daylighting and mentioned how “Roofing Contractors are the best resource for the skill, connections, and long-term presence needed to make the most of that investment.” We will make sure whether is on an existing roof or a new roof that the warranty is not jeopardized and/or included with the roof warranty. Some of the benefits they mention are:
- reduces/eliminates artificial lighting during the day
- tax incentives and utility rebates
- saves energy and improves productivity/employee satisfaction
- reduces greenhouse gases, water and air polution
Their article is urging roofing contractors and consumers both to seriously consider daylighting and explains that there is a daylighting system for every roof. To read their article in its entirety click here then call us for your free evaluation for your roofs daylighting project! 888-469-0059
