It’s Spring!

Well, we are a couple of weeks into spring, and in our personal and professional lives we look forward to spring cleaning. Maybe not look forward to it, but it is inevitable that cob webs need to be swept away, lawns need to be fertilized and windows need to be cleaned.

Most of our clients are on an annual roof anchor inspection program where we proactively book the inspection so that there is no delay in getting their windows cleaned.

Spring cleaning reminder: Ensure safety with Pro-Bel's roof anchor inspections for window cleaning

However, we do get the odd emergency call for an anchor inspection because the tenants of a residential or commercial building are continually asking “When are we getting the windows washed?”

Thankfully, we have a team of inspection professionals across North America who can be on your facility often, within days of receiving such a call.

While we do our best to spread these annual inspections throughout the year, spring is our busiest season.

Our sales team of Beverly Bean and newly hired, Brian Barks, can provide you with a proposal to have your roof anchors, roof davits, monorail or fall protection systems inspected in a timely fashion.  With our electronic report writing system and customer portal, you can have the system approved for use and have access to your reports and roof anchor drawings with little or no effort on your part.

If you are not part of the growing number of clients who are enjoying the benefit of the Customer Portal, please contact us to see how you can gain access to all of your roof anchor inspection documents and rigging drawings.  You can access this portal from any device and download and share with your window cleaning contractors or with any compliance officials who may visit your site to check your documentation.

Everything that our team at Pro-Bel has come up with, that is available to any of our clients, is to ensure you have easy access to all of your inspection documents at all times.

The two most important documents that your professional window cleaner will want to see are the inspection report and the rigging drawings which show the roof anchor locations, roof anchor details and any notes with respect to restricted areas and rigging diagrams.

If you do not have access to your up to date inspection report or rigging drawings, please contact Pro-Bel to provide you with both.  If you do not have rigging drawings, our technicians can perform an initial inspection and identify existing roof anchors or roof davits, complete a take off and provide rigging advice and ultimately approve the equipment for use.

So, as we look forward to longer, warmer days, we are also reminded of some of those “chores” that must be done.  Pro-Bel can assist you in checking at least one item off of your long list of to do items.  This will ensure that you get your windows washed in a timely fashion and when your tenants look out their home or office windows, they do so with a smile.

To our existing clients, thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and to new clients, we look forward to working with you.

To book a new inspection please contact Brian Barks at or existing clients with questions please contact Account Manager Beverly Bean at Load testing or maintenance should be directed to Michael Gardner at Of course, you can call us directly at 800-461-0575.

As always, if you have any comments, complaints, or questions, feel free to contact me directly and I will do my best to ensure that your concerns or questions are answered quickly and to your complete satisfaction.

Yours in safety,

Brent La Porte
