Roof Condition Surveys
We will access all areas necessary to review the existing condition of membranes, accessories, metalwork, penetrations, sealants, drainage, ventilation, interfacings and other details integral to the operation of your roof. We then provide a report of our findings and recommendations of repairs and/or improvements as well as projected life expectancy. The report includes annotated photographs for ease of identification.
Design and Specification
We review existing documentation such as architectural drawings, details and other site-specific resources. When the project is a re-roof, we also review the existing on-site conditions to gain information needed to compile a complete and detailed Specification. Our Specifications are made available to the client for review before going to tender. Our specifications follow the National Master Specification (NMS) format.
We research Contractor qualifications and availability before invitations are extended. We will meet with Contractors on site and provide the Specification, addenda and any other information required by the Contractors to ensure a complete and accurate preparation of their bids. We will present to the Client our recommendations when the Tenders are received.
Roofing and Waterproofing Inspections
We verify materials and on-site conditions before the project begins. We review the Specification with the on-site foreman to ensure full comprehension of the requirements. After conducting an inspection, we provide an immediate written report to the Contractor, outlined work conducted and any remedial work required. This inspection form is signed by the foreman.
Our inspections are conducted randomly and are unannounced. The number of inspections will exceed the requirements of the Roofing Guarantee Corporation. [RCABC - RGC]
