Welcome again to another podcast with advanced commercial systems. I am the owner and founder of advanced commercial systems. Uh, Marty Grisham. And I’m having our, our co owner here with me, Jennifer Gresham, and, uh, she might have some questions today. Uh, you know, when we’re running the business and all the stuff that we’re dealing with inside the office, like processing payments and all those kinds of things, she’s really in charge of all the financial side of it. So, Jennifer, do you have any questions, um, that you, you know, things that you get asked that you would think some of our future clients would like to hear him? Well, I get a lot of
questions about different budgets. Um, you know, can, you know, how do they know whether it needs to be, um, whether a roof needs to be repaired or if it needs to be replaced, you know, so can you kind of walk us through how, you know, um, the, the life expectancy that’s left on a roof when you first, the first time you go up and, and, uh, check it out?
Well that’s, there’s so many levels of that answering that question. The first thing I’d say is if you have that question, then it’s a pretty simple answer of go to okay, roof nerds.com that’s her own line website and go to the top of there and click schedule appointment. Now that would be scheduling a 24 hour free roof evaluation. So what that means is within 24 hours we’re out there, we’re doing it now that I’ll complete evaluation of your roof. Here’s what that consist of, your current roof system, we’re going to gather all that data, we’re going to drill a hole in your roof and see what kind of installations there, see what kind of decades there were going to gather all that data. And by the way, we’re going to fill that whole back end off so it doesn’t leak. And we found that a law often have, a lot of times that happens in commercial roofing broken Arrow, and so, and when we’re done with that, we’re going to do a full walkthrough video of the entire initial walk on the roof.
And then if there’s any problematic areas, we’re going to take very close up, detailed high def pictures of those. And if we need our drone to come out and do, we need, we’ll be able to use a drone and our thermal imaging camera to show any information or any data that you need. So once we gather all the information, we’re going to sit down with you, we’re going to talk with you about I specifically, what your budget is and what you would like to see done. Sometimes we’re going to basically present to you, maybe you might only need a full reroofing or a full roof replacements. So it’s really going to depend on multiple things. The age of your current roof. Um, it’s going to depend on how well your roof has been taking care of what type of roof system you have. Do you have ponding areas? Do you have areas where water excessively stays more than 24 48 hours? You know, according to the National Roofing Contractors Association, all low slope roofs, the water needs to exit them within 24 to 48 hours. So, um, we need that to happen and we need to gather that information to show you really what we’re coming up with as far as whether we need to repair or just start a bi annual maintenance plan or whether we need to reroof
You know, it’s, I think our listeners will be glad to hear that they don’t have to climb up on the roof themselves. So, um, you, you provide videos, you have drones for really tall roof so that the clients can really see what’s going on without having to get up there themselves. I have no, I would be happy to hear that. And personally, um, another thing you mentioned you just casually said, and it seems crazy to me, you said that some people don’t fill in, um, a roof when there’s a core sample done, which would cause a pretty, I can imagine a pretty extensive leak. So I, I want to just point out and you might, can expand on this topic. It’s so important to use a roof in a roofing company that you can trust, that has great reviews and um, that you can trust to not do something like drill a hole in your roof and leave a hole there. Right?
Yeah, exactly. You know, and that specific story that happened about six or nine months ago, I was called out to a roof by one of our top property managers. One of the top companies in town called me out to a roof that I’ve done maintenance too in the past. And they basically said that there’s the other side of the roof that I’ve never seen before. There’s a leak going on over there with over, um, you know, a haircutting salon. And so, you know, it’s a big storefront area. So I walked over and checked it out on the roof and I basically found were another roofer in the last few years, have done a core sample and they went to feel the core sample in, but it didn’t even feel it in very well. And it was actually leaking because of the hole that they had done to assess what kind of roof it was.
Wow. That’s awful. I W you know, so anyway, you won’t get that with the, okay, roof nerds are guys are experts and that’s, that’s really a real rookie mistake and that’s not taking care of our clients. You know, we really do want to take care of our guys at two of our clients and our guys are, are there to just walk you through the process including, you know, any insurance problems you might have. You know, we have a lot of calls about that also, um, when people call into the office, you know, is this going to be covered by insurance? Do you work with the adjusters? You know, how does that work, Marty?
Well, as far as insurance claims and our adjusters are concerned, um, yeah, what you do, you reach out to us and let us know what you’re thinking. You know, you might call and say, Hey, um, I’m at so and so intersection here in commercial roofing broken Arrow or in Tulsa, we’re sky took. And so you let us know where you’re located. We can go back in the last 12 or 24 months and look at the records of wind and hail damage. We have the all the records of when the hill was from the past, and then also the diameter and the size hail of that area. So if you are wondering if you’ve had hell damage and you’re, let’s say you’re at in sky took, you know, two to three blocks off of main street and you think you had hail damage last week. Well, I could pull up pretty quickly and let you know whether you really did or not just by the online records that we’re keeping on online.

there’s nothing, uh, you know, I remember years ago working in construction and working on roofs and just the satisfaction that we would get whenever we would do a good job, you know, when a job was well done. And I’ll tell ya, even now when we finish a roof, we finish a repair. I personally get it in my truck and drive to many of the locations, you know, during the next big rain or after the big next big rain. And I walk in and say how the roof do. I don’t know of any roofer in the entire state that does that. I’ve done that. What, 40 times in the last three or four months. Literally driving to all my clients like during the rain or after the rain and walk in and say, how’s that roof doing? The roof. I worked on the roof, I’ve replaced, how’s it going? How’s it going? And they walked me around and I’ll look and see that there’s no leaking. So yeah,
