The Importance of Regular Roof Inspections and
  • Roof Consulting Services, Inc.

Roof Maintenance
  • A regular maintenance program is essential to
    getting the maximum life from a roof
  • Dont assume that just because a roof doesnt
    leak, it hasnt incurred damage

Roof Inspections
  • Inspecting and maintaining a roof is the only way
    to extend its service life after it has been
  • Semi-annual inspections can catch many roofing
    problems before any major damage occurs

Visual Inspections
  • Periodic visual inspections can greatly increase
    the service life of any roof assembly and
    therefore reduce life cycle costs
  • Qualified roof inspectors walk over the entire
    roof area looking for and photographing any

Moisture Surveys
  • Water infiltration  is one of the industry's most
    persistent and costly problems resulting in roof
    leaks, loss of insulating properties, structural
    deterioration and property damage
  • Infrared Moisture Surveys can determine if and
    where detrimental moisture is in a roofing system

Aging Wear
  • The natural tendency of a roof system, as with
    most materials, is to slowly deteriorate from the
    moment it comes into contact with the environment
  • The climatic conditions a roof is exposed to can
    be extreme - Intense sun rays can boost
    temperatures on the roof over 150 F and swings
    between hot and cold can be as significant as 40
    to 50 degrees in 24 hours

Inspect All Components
  • RCS utilizes a checklist to ensure that all
    conditions are accounted for during inspection
  • We include the perimeter edge, wall flashings,
    terminations, equipment curb flashings, seams,
    caulkings, etc.

Document All Deficiencies
  • We mark and number deficiencies with spray paint
    or a grease pen
  • And we utilize photographs as a backup to marking
    the roof surface

Perform the Repairs
  • Make sure you are repairing the deficiencies
    after each inspection and not waiting until water
    enters the building
  • Utilize a roofing professional who uses the
    proper equipment, materials and methods to
    perform the repairs
