Why Hire a Roof Consultant ?

Your roof system is the most important part of the structure as it protects everything on the inside, from the elements outside. When deciding on a new or reroof installation there is an inexhaustible list of different types of roofing products, each having their own installation standards.

Generally, when someone needs a new roof they will contact 3 to 4 companies to get quotes. Without knowing exactly what you want, each roofing company will have their own idea of what you should have or what they would like to do. The customer usually ends up with varying quotes, each with different recommendations and/or products, which can be very confusing and often stressful for the customer.

In today’s competitive, fast-paced society, important details concerning a roofing project can often be overlooked. There are many things to consider when a new roof system is installed, most importantly are the manufacturer written installation procedures and requirements for warranty validation.

Some other key components are weather protection during installation, housekeeping, proper ventilation (intake & exhaust), drainage ability, flashing details & other associated components such as wall coverings, soffits, fascia’s & gutter systems.

A new roof installation relies mainly on the roofer’s knowledge and workmanship ethics. That being said, is the roofer actually using the right materials and is he/she fully aware of & abiding by the appropriate installation requirements to ensure a quality, warrantable & safe installation?

At On Top Inspections Ltd., we can draft up detailed specifications and customize the needs of each individual project. This minimizes any grey areas and provides a clear understanding of what is expected from beginning to end. Each contractor will be bidding on the same criteria, which keeps all bids comparable and generally more competitive. This takes the guess work out of the mix for the roofer as well as the customer and most often achieves better pricing for the project.

At On Top Inspections Ltd. we can perform periodic inspections during the reroofing phase to verify the materials used are as specified & applications are in compliance with the manufacturer’s written installation specifications & good roofing practice.

Having a Roof Consultant oversee a project greatly increases the probability of a higher quality finished job with less problems. Good roof systems are obtained by incorporating high quality materials, job specific installation details, competent/integral trade professionals and most importantly years of professionalism.

Control of what happens with the roof is then given back to the owner.
