Why Your Business Needs GreaseGuard

The roofs of many businesses, particularly restaurants, sustain a significant amount of damages due to the presence of grease, oil and other pollutants. These substances are often emitted onto the rooftop through kitchen exhaust fans, and while the damage can go completely unseen and unnoticed for a significant period of time, when a building owner finally does discover the problem, it’s often costly, or worse, dangerous.
