Because a registered roofing observer will give you an unbiased assessment delivering the best recommendations for replacement, retrofitting and repairs.
The bottom-line is that the roof protects your building asset and most likely will be your most expensive replacement. Therefore before considering replacement of your roof, by hiring a Registered Roofing Observer, you will answer these five vital questions:
- Is the project a reaction to leaks?
- Is the project in response to expired warranties?
- Has roofing replacement vs roofing restoration been evaluated?
- Is retrofitting the roof a viable option?
- Will strategic repairs maintain compliance?
As roofing structures are comprised of different elements, they have varying lengths also of service life due to composition and effect by external aspects beyond the asset owner’s control. Therefore it is critical to assess the actual condition of the roof to plan and invest for maximum benefit and long-term sustainability.
A neutral third party, not a contractor or product manufacturer, should be hired to provide an unbiased assessment.
A Registered Roofing Observer will perform a visual evaluation along with an infrared scan for wet insulation. Drawings with an opinion of probable cost table based on age, condition and needs outlining repairs, retrofits and replacement will also be provided to create an informed roof management plan designed to protect your investment, to reduce costs and extend the roof’s service life so you can proactively prepare for its eventual replacement.
