Planned Commercial Roof Maintenance
The von Maur family opened its first retail store back in the late 1800s in Davenport, IA, where the family-owned company remains headquartered today. Now 29 stores strong, the clothing retailer has been relying on D. C. Taylor Co.’s expertise and roofing services for more than a decade.
For three years, D. C. Taylor Co. has created a customized annual service program for Von Maur. The development of the program carefully weighs the retailer’s maintenance budget with the needs identified during Annual Roof Inspections that assess the condition of each of the retailer’s store roofs.
General Preventive Maintenance
To address some of the conditions identified during the rooftop inspections, General Preventive Maintenance is performed. This entails cleaning the roof and performing minor repairs. This has resulted in fewer (and less costly) emergency repairs.
As Von Maur upgrades their stores with more energy-efficient rooftop HVAC units, D. C. Taylor Co. is flashing in the new curbs, according to the roof system manufacturers’ specifications. D. C. Taylor Co. is also providing pre- and post-project inspections, which provide a detailed snapshot of a roof’s current state, identify potential issues that could impact the schedule or budget of the project, and reveal any damage to the roof membrane caused during the installation of the new units.
Roof Asset Management
D. C. Taylor Co.’s use of the Asset Management module of RoofLogic software, enables Von Maur to log in to the online database where reports, information, warranty tracking, and history can be accessed.
