Challenges: We Go the Extra Mile
Home Repair staff and crews utilized extra precautions working in a high-traffic area at the public golf course. The team mitigated business interruption while providing enhanced safety measures. To ensure the property didn’t look closed or like a construction zone, the Home Repair Inspector took extra care not to chalk all the roofs up with damage, as the facility was open for business throughout the entire construction process. The Inspector took detailed photos of the damage and used those so the property wouldn’t be unsightly or lose business throughout the process.
Outcome: Better than Before
It was rewarding to provide this popular golf course with visually appealing roofing systems that blend in and will last for years to come. They previously had a variety of aging systems, and now they have a consistent, long-lasting product that will provide weather maintenance through the seasons, energy savings, and enhanced visual appeal. It’s also rewarding to know we helped them with important storm damage repairs, so they can operate for years to come.
