QUALITY ASSURANCE INSPECTION

As a building owner/manager, you may ask why do I need a roof quality assurance inspection on my upcoming roofing project?

  • A roof system is made of many different types of materials that have been designed to work together to maintain the roof and building integrity.  When roof materials are improperly installed the results will lead to costly repairs, lawsuits, or entire roof replacement.  Relying on the contractor to provide quality assurance should be a sure bet, but experience has shown that most contractors are not looking out for the owner’s best interests.  They are focused on installing the roof as quickly and at the lowest cost to them possible.

  • There may local/regional requirements to have third party quality assurance on all roofing jobs. 

  • Hiring a third-party roof quality assurance inspector provides you the peace of mind that your roof is going to be installed properly with the correct warrantable materials that were described in the contract documents. 

 

What is Roof Quality Assurance Inspection?

  • Is an inspection that occurs during installation of roofing materials.  These inspections can occur on a full-time basis, part-time or by spot inspections.  The goal of these inspections is to ensure roofing material installation is being conducted in accordance with contract documents, manufacture specifications and industry standards.
