Condition Reports

A condition report can include different criteria depending on the roof system and our client's needs or concerns. An example of this would be a detailed diagram and photos of the roof along with a written report based on visual observations & core tests if applicable. Our reports will determine the current condition of the roof, what repairs are necessary to maintain the integrity, how long it may last and what costs may be incurred for replacement or repairs.

Roofing Maintenance

The most important reason for establishing a program of regular roof maintenance is to protect the owner's investment. A properly executed maintenance program will add years to the life of the roof by detecting minor problems before they become major, as well as providing better protection for, and avoiding interruption of, the internal functions of the building.

A roof system can be exposed to all manners of chemical and physical stress. The long term effects of these forces are called "Normal Aging". In reality, small isolated problems caused through abuse, stress concentration, inadequate ventilation, error, or other factors result in a shortened lifespan of the roofing system. Small problems or defects, if not detected and repaired, inevitably become major problems, affecting the performance of the whole roof system.

It is commonly recommended through the Roofing Industry that roof systems in their early stages be checked at least once every couple of years and more frequently as the roof ages in order to address any isolated problems that may arise.

The cost of a maintenance inspection is minimal when compared to the cost of replacing a roof or a section of a roof prematurely. This will allow you to get the maximum serviceable life of your roof system and obtain budget costs of roof replacement when needed, therefore, improving your financial planning & forecast.

A Maintenance Inspection consists of:

-Visual overview of the roof, flashing details & associated accessories followed with a written report, detailed diagrams and photos for labeling & locating any deficiencies or necessary repairs. This provides a record for our client’s roof and allows for speedier more efficient future inspections.

-At our client's request we can provide a list of reputable roofing contractors to fix any deficiencies that need to be addressed.
