Colliers International and Fortis Warranty Enter into Roofing Partnership
Fortis Warranty, a leading provider of proprietary roof reconditioning and warranty/performance guarantees on existing commercial low slope roofs, has announced the formation of a new National Roofing Partnership with Colliers International.
As the company’s primary roofing partner, Fortis will coordinate with Colliers’ National Contractor Vendors to provide meticulous roof reconditioning to prolong the lifespan of existing roofs, the coordination of all leak repairs and service needs, and the management of roof warranty claims for all of Colliers’ roofs. Furthermore, Colliers will adopt Fortis Warranty’s stringent standards, material savings, and comprehensive warranty in all of the real estate company’s future roof construction projects.
Founded in 2003, Fortis is a disruptor in the roofing industry, combining financial certainty, scientific analysis, and years of roof management expertise to ensure superior performance and guaranteed solutions that extend the life and value of their clients’ roofing assets For over 15 years, they’ve helped a diverse array of companies extend the life of their roofs and save money on needless roofing repairs.
Covering entire or partial roof systems, Fortis’ Extended Warranty Program is more comprehensive and enduring than episodic repairs, with reconditioning systems performed to Fortis’ exacting standards by a network of over 350 experienced and certified contractors, covering 50 states and 6 countries. Costing on average less than a third of a total re-roof, Fortis provides a risk-management tool guaranteed to extend roof life and defer the significant capital investment of roof replacement, offering provable ROI and a stronger guarantee than any manufacturer’s roof warranty.
As the industry’s only insured roof warranty guarantee backed by Lloyd’s of London, the world’s top specialty insurance underwriter, Fortis Warranty currently cares for and protects more than 3,000 facilities and over 125 million square feet of roof, including many Fortune 500 companies with sophisticated management requirements.
Fortis’ National Roofing Partnership with Colliers International will drive the company’s long-range roof asset planning through extensive roof reconditioning and new roof construction that far exceeds industry standards. Backed by the most comprehensive and least restrictive warranties in the industry, this new agreement will provide Colliers International total peace of mind on the performance of their roofing assets, save them millions of dollars in deferred roof replacement costs, and will keep tens of thousands of tons of toxic roofing waste out of landfills.
