Commercial & Industrial Roof Inspections

Commercial and industrial roof inspections differ greatly from residential roof inspections in many ways. This being the materials used, slope of the roof, design of the building, drainage and so on. The key to obtaining a comprehensive and professional report is to hire a qualified inspector with experience and education in commercial building structures.

Having an inspector equipped with this knowledge and experience allows us to form a general understanding of the entire building and assists us in articulating our findings in the report that better support our observations during the inspection. Performing each commercial inspection with the approach that the entire building envelope is relevant to the roof condition, provides our clients with a more in depth roof inspection and helps us to describe our findings in ways that aren't overwhelming or technically exhausting.

Similar to our residential sector, we offer the same inspections and consultative services for commercial structures.

Annual Maintenance Roof Inspection 

 

This is an inspection service designed to prolong the life of your roof by performing annual inspections of the roof coverings. We uncover any deferred maintenance, damage or potential areas of concern that would otherwise go unnoticed. When these deficiencies go unnoticed or neglected, they typically become big ticket expenses. The minimum commitment is 3 years, but this locks you in at a discounted rate of anywhere from 10% to 30% from the initial inspection fee for the entire service agreement. You will also receive priority in the event of a storm related event, to determine if any damage has occurred.

What We Inspect

Our commercial and industrial roof inspections are more than just checking the roof coverings for deficiencies. We inspect 5 zones to determine the health and condition of the roof.
