5-Steps To A Flawless Roof Inspection
Sadler Coating Systems follows a regimented set of steps during every roof inspection our qualified technicians perform. Our inspections are executed with our customers’ needs in mind, so you can trust we will never recommend a repair unless we really believe it is necessary.
Here is a brief overview of our process:
Research – Before ever stepping foot on your roof, our contractors cover their bases by doing a little research:
- Find out if the roof is under warranty. This may limit what services or products may be used on it without voiding the guarantee.
- Look at existing building records. Knowing the building layout can help your roofing technician plot out their approach to the roof’s examination.
- Speak with building occupants to find out if there are any existing or known issues.
Interior Inspection – Your roof should be looked at from the inside out. If your commercial roof has interior access, here are just a few of the things we’ll look for:
- Structural defects
- Light leaks
- Wet insulation
- Water stains
- Dry rot
- Mildew or mold
Building Envelope Assessment – Your building envelope is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment and includes the foundation, roof, walls, doors, windows, ceiling, and their related barriers and insulation. We’ll look at this component, noting any defects, cracks, leaks, etc.
Rooftop Inspection – Finally, we get around to the actual rooftop. It may seem like it takes a while, but trust us, every part of our roof inspection process is integral to the assessment of your commercial roof as a whole. During this step, our technicians will carefully and closely inspect the roof from perimeter to perimeter. Some of the most common issues we look at include:
- Standing water
- Valleys or low spots
- Failing seams
- Failing flashing and copings
- General wear and tear
- Vegetation growth
- Debris buildup
- Poor drainage/inadequate or clogged drain systems
- Poorly installed rooftop equipment
- And more!
Proposal For Action – Once your inspection is complete, we will present you with a detailed report of all findings and suggested solutions. This is our opportunity to impress you with our thoroughness, resourcefulness, and value-minded resolutions. Once you decide how you would like to move forward, we can outline details like timeline.
