Roof Inspections: The observations and recommendations of an impartial inspector, such as a roof consultant, typically carry more weight than those of a roofing contractor because, unlike the contractor, the consultant does not gain from any work performed. A consultant can impartially inspect and report on the condition of your roof and make qualified recommendations to maximize the service life of the roof. The consultant solely represents the interest of the customer.

Maintenance Inspections: Documentation of the conditions found with recommendations for the appropriate course of action needed and a suggested time frame. Catching problems before they occur can save damage to substrates, insulation, interior finishes and property.

Real Estate Inspections: Knowing what kind of condition the roof is in and what the short and long-term issues are before purchasing a property can be a critical piece of information.

Insurance Claim Inspections:  Historical properties are unique and don't fit the typical repair model the insurance companies commonly utilize.  A roofing professional who understands the complexities of repairing this kind of property is essential to get an accurate assessment of the damage and repairs needed.

Design Services and Plan Review: Whether planning a new project, an addition or a renovation we will work with your architect or builder to plan the details of the roof and rain carrying systems that will function optimally with your new design. We will incorporate modern function with traditional design, through the use of contemporary materials, design elements and installation techniques. 

Project Management: Act as an owner's representative to interface with the contractor.  Manage the installation of a roofing project and ensure that it is being installed per contract specifications and troubleshoot problems as they occur. Review applications for payment and change orders. Monitor schedule and perform inspections at pre-construction, progress and job completion.

Diagnosis and Planning: Investigate and uncover the issues leading to problems with the roof or rain carrying systems and design solutions for those problems.

Cost Estimating: Provide budget pricing for fiscal planning, phased restoration, long-term planning and grant applications.

Training: Available to train your staff members in roofing and architectural sheet metal techniques.

Test Cuts: Investigative openings done prior to the replacement of roof and flashing systems can help "tell the story" why the installation failed or lasted so long and what was there originally. They are essential for proper design and cost estimating of the new system. Post roof replacement test cuts are useful quality control tools.

Available by appointment or via phone conference.
