Commercial Roof Surveys for Roofing Projects
West Roofing Systems provides free commercial roof surveys for all of our current and potential customers who are interested in having work done on their facility. Our sales team and expert technicians perform a comprehensive roof analysis by inspecting existing conditions, establishing roof assembly through core samples to determine if the project will be on overlay or tear-off, and measuring roof area square footage.
Our sales team and expert technicians perform a comprehensive roof analysis by inspecting existing conditions of not only the top membrane but also the insulation and roof penetrations. Every roof survey is completed thoroughly by taking photos, writing notes and working with the facility owners to learn about the problem areas and how they can be alleviated.
Some of the inspection reports on our list include:
- Overall Structure
- Top Membrane
- Metal Edges
- Wall Copings
Commercial Roof Inspections for Real Estate Transactions
A traditional commercial roof inspection is not as comprehensive as a full roof survey. A facility owner or manager will need a commercial roof inspection for real estate transaction or when they are simply looking to gain knowledge for capital improvement budgeting and or maintenance concerns.
A commercial roof inspection would not include taking cores or evaluating all of the layers of membrane and insulation on the system. Rather, this is more of a condition assessment to check is the building codes are in compliance, whether proper maintenance has been performed and what the longevity of the current roof system may be.
