Let us help you with practical, cost-effective rooftop tools to help minimize problems from snow and ice melts.


Snow Guards

  • Installed at the edge of the roof to hold onto snow so that snow and ice melt gradually and fall off the roof slowly. The snow guards prevent chunks of snow and ice from sliding off the roof and causing damage to people, vehicles or equipment on the ground.

Cleaning your roof can result in many benefits:


  • Aesthetics: A clean roof looks better than a dirty one. If the roof surface can be seen then the CentiMark Sustainable Roof Cleaning Solution will make the roof look better!

  • Membrane Performance: A clean roof will have a lower surface temperature than a dirty dark roof; thereby, aiding in the roof membrane reaching its maximum useful life.

  • Energy Savings: There will be some energy savings that can result from the cleaning of the roof. This can happen due to cooler air being taken in from the HVAC system and thereby requires less cooling, as well, as a reduced membrane temperature.

  • Biocides: Our cleaning process can be finished with a biocide that will reduce both algae and mold growth.

  • Identification of Membrane Condition: Cleaning the roof allows for the total exposure of the roof membrane and can expose needed repairs required for preventative maintenance.
  • Future Cleanings: Once the roof is cleaned and sealed it inhibits dirt and other growth build up; thereby, making future cleanings easier.

  • Sustainable Cleaning Process: The materials used are not hazardous and are environmentally friendly.

  • Workmanship: The CentiMark Sustainable Roof Cleaning is performed by CentiMark employees and will not jeopardize your CentiMark warranty.

Professionally clean your roof

White single-ply roofs do get dirty from debris, mold, pollution and environmental factors. To get the maximum benefit of reflectivity of the sun’s rays, as well as enhance the aesthetics of the roof, it’s wise to have your roof professionally cleaned. CentiMark Service Associates are trained in the proper techniques to clean the roof membrane and employ environmentally safe solutions.

Clean your roof annually

Cleaning should take place at least annually during the spring through fall. In addition to cleaning your white single-ply roof, our CentiMark crews can also perform routine Preventative Maintenance and repairs to help extend the life of your roof.



Is your roof clean?

In order to restore your commercial roofing system to its optimal performance, it's necessary to have a maintenance strategy in place that includes professional cleaning.

Steps for cleaning:

1. CentiMark crews apply a special environmentally friendly high pH solution that will break down mold, dirt and algae on your roof. A high temperature, flat surface pressure washer then rinses the contaminants away for a like new finish.
2. Upon thorough cleaning and rinsing, CentiMark then applies a nano-technology, sustainable, eco-friendly treatment to the roof that enhances and extends the cleanliness of the roof.
3. As an end result, the clean, white roof will look great, improve reflectivity and add performance to the roof membrane.


Asbestos Removal

Asbestos is used in many common building materials including sprayed on insulation, fireproofing and soundproofing in literally tens of thousands of buildings across Canada. It is used in schools, offices, warehouses, sports arenas, airport terminals and many other private and public structures. Millions of Canadians are endangering their health by breathing asbestos-laden air, unaware of their daily contact. It has been known for 45 years that asbestos is a carcinogen, a cancer causing agent that creates fibrous changes and scarring in lung tissue. While the latency period for asbestos-induced lung cancer is 15-30 years, most victims die within two years of the first symptom. But lung cancer is not the only hazard associated with asbestos. Physicians are now seeing cancers caused by asbestos fibers that have migrated to other parts of the body.

The obvious solution is to render our collective environments as free from the dangers of asbestos as is possible. From the first site inspection, to the final disposal of the hazardous material, CentiMark can provide all services associated with asbestos abatement.

Professional Preparation

Effective asbestos abatement techniques require innovative, meticulous and efficient preparation and execution. CentiMark personnel are experienced in a wide variety of abatement applications. Workers are certified and trained in all applicable environmental, health and safety regulations and experience rigorous ongoing training and safety updates. The experience that comes from preparing thousands of asbestos abatement projects has taught CentiMark workers to do it right and with great care. CentiMark maintains an excellent working relationship with industrial hygienists and air monitoring laboratories to insure adherence to all job specifications.

Quality Control

CentiMark constantly monitors the environment of all jobsites. Strict work and safety procedures are enforced. Management maintains a continuous and legally accountable presence. We at CentiMark take our work very seriously. There is no other way to handle asbestos abatement. Fortunately, the problems associated with asbestos are now well known. We at CentiMark are dedicated to providing a safe solution for as long as those problems continue to endanger the lives of Canadians.
