    Roof Consulting Services:

    The physical inspection of the complete roof area documenting findings and obtaining photographic evidence in report format. Provided report will outline all observed findings with problem areas notated on a roof sketch or roof plans, if available.
    Investigation into premature roof failure as a result of improper installation, failing roof components, hail damage, or excessive wind related blow-offs. Expert testimony services may also be contracted as a result of our investigation.
    Design and development of a roof system to ensure that all criteria have been addressed to offer the best roof performance for the client’s particular needs. This includes onsite data collection and preparation of a full 3-part set of bidding documents including specifications, drawings, and details.
    Bid review – Careful review and evaluation of all estimates to ensure all project specifics have been addressed and included.

    Review of Submittals – Review all product data submittals, samples, and shop drawings are provided to verify that the correct products will be used on the project.

    Preconstruction Meeting – Establish a meeting between a designer, client, and installer to go over all the details and the sequence of events related to an installation project.

    Quality Control Visits During Construction – Visual inspection and documentation of the worksite during the construction process performed by RoofTech Consulting, Inc. staff to maintain standards during roof construction.

    Final Punch-list Inspections – Perform an onsite review and investigation of the substantially completed project to verify that all project specifications, guidelines, and installation methods have been followed.

    RoofTech Consulting Inc. can develop a maintenance program that enables a building owner to extend the lifecycle of their roofs by proactively addressing roof concerns until such time that roof replacement can be properly budgeted.
    Roof assemblies are complex and it is common for mistakes to occur. Roofing makes up less than 5% of building construction costs, yet water intrusion makes up over 75% of construction litigation. Our experts can help investigate the case and provide options for rectification through historical analysis, code compliancy, failure analysis, forensic investigation, certified testing, litigation, arbitration, and expert testimony.

    Forensic Testing Services:

    We utilize the use of infrared photography and other non-invasive moisture detection equipment to assist in pinpointing areas of wet insulation within low-slope roof systems.
    With the use of an infrared camera, our certified infrared camera operator will assist in assessing potentially abnormal heat levels, insulation deficiencies and potential air leakage in the exterior building envelope.
    This standard testing method is used to verify the newly installed roof system is “watertight” prior to project closeout.
    Wind blowing against a building creates upward (negative) pressure on a roof system. An uplift test determines the amount of negative pressure a specific roof system can withstand.
    Also known as Electronic Field Vector Mapping (EFVM). By using electrical current to test the integrity of roofing and waterproofing membranes, our electronic leak detection equipment will assist in locating pinholes, leaks and areas of weakness in non-conductive roofing membranes.
    • High Voltage Electronic Leak Detection: Enables testing on dry (no water present) roofing membranes.
    • Low Voltage Electronic Leak Detection: Enables testing on wet (water present) roofing membranes.

    This standard test method consists of drilling holes in newly poured concrete into which a relative humidity (RH) probe is placed to evaluate the necessary dryness of a concrete roof deck prior to installation of flooring or roofing.
