MINNEAPOLIS, April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Having spent a lifetime in the cold and ice, if there's one thing Tecta America Stock Roofing's new President, Rob McNamara, knows a thing or two about, it's how to take care of a roof after a long, freezing winter.
"Almost nothing is tougher on a roof than snow and ice," said McNamara, who recently took the helm at Tecta America Stock Roofing after many years heading another of Tecta's cold-weather operations, F.J.A. Christiansen Roofing in Milwaukee. "There may be damage present that isn't even visible. The best way to avoid costly repairs or business delays is through expert inspection, and having a planned maintenance program in place."
In addition to the elements, weathering the economic climate, many building owners are trying to get every bit of life out of their roofs. Having a strong, relationship-based service provider is critical. "Inspection and maintenance ensure roof integrity and identify damages that can compromise a building's infrastructure," said McNamara. "Maintaining assets through planned maintenance is the best way to prolong the life of the roof, while delaying a more costly repair, or re-roof."
As part of one of the nation's largest roofing contractors, Tecta America Stock Roofing provides quick, local response with the financial stability and bonding capacity that only a national firm can provide. Tecta's roofing professionals are fully-insured, fully-licensed, and experienced with every type of roofing system, with dedicated service departments responding to immediate repairs and performing regular planned maintenance visits for customers pre-enrolled in a pro-active Tecta Service Program. Because Tecta is certified by all major roofing manufacturers, repairs are performed correctly and efficiently while keeping roof warranties valid.
"In addition to planned maintenance as a vital spring activity, environmental solutions will continue to gain traction as Stock Roofing looks to bring even more energy and environmental solutions – vegetative roofing, solar, daylighting, coatings – to our customers in order to support both Minneapolis' green initiatives, as well as those of building owners and managers," said McNamara.
Stock Roofing has completed a variety of noteworthy sustainable projects including the Target Center, Minneapolis Federal Courthouse, the St. Paul Fire Station, and the historical James J. Hill House. Stock Roofing was founded in 1987, and became a Tecta America Company in 2003.
