How To Stay Ahead of Labor and Materials Shortages

The roofing industry is mired in a labors and materials shortage that’s making things challenging, to say the least – and not just for roofers. Organizations with vast roofing portfolios are also having to navigate the best plans of action for their assets.

To learn how Fortis Warranty is helping the industry tackle these shortages, Roof Talks host Daniel Litwin sat down with a trio of experts from the company’s Strategic Accounts team in Michael DuBois, Charlie Schulz, and Chris Evans.

Generally, Fortis’s ability to provide robust reconditioning solutions bolstered by a Lloyd’s of London-backed warranty makes it easier for portfolio managers to get the most out of their roofs.

Fortis will never prematurely replace a roof that doesn’t need it, and thorough, proprietary assessments and service ensure that only what needs attention is attended to.

“[Clients] don’t have six months to wait to get their roof taken care of,” DuBois said. “The conversation is just this – we can be on your roof in four weeks. … We can be off that roof a week, maybe two weeks, later, at the most, and you don’t have to worry about a thing afterward.”

That speed also translates to benefits in terms of total downtime and protection from natural disasters, weather and other potential delays.

“The duration of our projects can be considered [around] 30% of the time commitment that an equivalent reroofing project would take,” Schulz said. “That translates to much less impact and downtime for the client. … [We’re also not] opening up the building to the elements to the degree that a reroofing project would.”
