SBSA Provides Independent Roof Inspections

SBSA Provides Independent Roof Inspections

Because SBSA doesn’t partner with insurance companies we are able to maintain an independent observation.
Consider that a fight over policy, damages, and repairs can weigh heavily on pre-existing conditions it is important to keep a good photo log and inspection report each season. SBSA can aid in your diligence.

Construction and Property Analysis is where the physical needs of properties are analyzed, the repair or replacement needs for properties are determined, and all of these are balanced with the allocated available capital.

Our analysis, long-term planning, and decision-making skills are applied in a variety of ways for clients who have a need for cost-effective solutions for their long-term planning.

SBSA’s Construction and Property Analysis (CPA) department serves a variety of clients by helping to determine the physical and financial needs of their properties. SBSA utilizes structured management techniques and advanced decision support tools to provide effective solutions to recurring facility maintenance, repair, and replacement.

SBSA Field Testing

SBSA Field Testing

In order to evaluate why your exterior or interior issue occur removal of the veneer must be done.  At some point, a determination of either the commonality of construction or the no commonality can be determined.  From that point, the repair methods can be inferred.  It is never an easy task to provide forensic examination and when proper quality assurance is done you can minimize your damages.

In Loving Memory of Bonita Marie Fronapfel

In Loving Memory of Bonita Marie Fronapfel

Bonita Marie Fronapfel passed away on June 12, 2018. She was born in Clara City, MN on November 23, 1932, a daughter of Peter and Marie Schuman, she is survived by her sisters Carole, Patricia, Cathy and brother Eugene who preceded her in his death. She is survived by her spouse Harold Fronapfel of whom she married on April 18, 1955. Harold and Bonita have ten children, Tom, Steve who preceded her in death, Jim, Karen, Mike, Gretchen, Lori, Ed, Eric, and P.J. Bonita worked as a bank teller in Murdock, MN and for the State of Minnesota. While married she worked at Warder Elementary, Joslins Department Store, and for a land holding company all while maintaining a strong and healthy household in Arvada, Colorado. She moved to Colorado in 1952, where she met Harold in 1954 on a blind date and they were wed at St. Catherine’s Church in Denver.

Services will be held at Spirit of Christ in Arvada, Colorado on July 17, 2018 @1pm. Following services, there will be a “life remembrance” ceremony.

She provided the following legacy:

“That those who really believed in me, for who I am, really am, would come to understand that …not who, when, or why I did something, but instead, how it helped to make yours and my day better. That nothing was ever done out of anything but love and wanting to make your day better, and our life easier during good and bad times. When we give to someone we should give with the understanding that we may never receive something in return or even expect it. That things come back to us from different people in different ways. I believe we can make everything have some positive effect, providing that we let it. To always look for the good, not the bad in every situation.”

~Bonita Fronapfel

We will all miss Bonita dearly and hope that her life and passing provide others the insight into happiness, patience, joy, and perseverance. In lieu of flowers, Bonita requested that donations are made to those who helped make her last days comfortable.

Please donate in her honor to TRU Community Care Hospice Center
