4 Steps To Superior Roof Inspections With Empire!

Empire Contractors blow the competition out of the water when it comes to our comprehensive roof inspections. Our roofing technicians are trained to inspect each roof carefully, thoroughly, and precisely, so we can ensure your roof is thoroughly evaluated and any issues are appropriately attended to.

Here are the steps we take to inspect your commercial roof:

1. Research the roof thoroughly before ever stepping foot on it.

Whenever possible, the professionals at Empire Contractors will gather as much information about your roof as possible before stepping foot on it. This includes:

  • Finding out if your roof is under warranty. Some guarantees spell out what type of work may be done or what type of products may be used on a roof to keep the warranty intact. We want to make sure we don’t void your warranty by going in and performing an unapproved repair.
  • Looking at existing building records, including layouts, blueprints, etc. This helps us stay safe while traversing your roof.
  • Speaking with building occupants. People who live or work under the roof are most likely to know of any existing issues or chronic problems.

2. Inspect the roof’s interior.

The inside of the roof is just as important as the outside in terms of performance. Empire Contractors’ roofing technicians will carefully inspect the roof’s interior, looking for signs of trouble, such as:

  • Rust
  • Water stains
  • Dry rot
  • Corrosion
  • Wet spots/wet insulation/leaks
  • Loose or missing fasteners
  • Animal infestation
  • Structural defects
  • Defects in the building envelope
  • And more

3. Inspect the rooftop.

Now that the underlying structures have been thoroughly assessed, one of Empire Contractors factory-trained, certified roofing technicians will closely inspect your building’s rooftop, including the roof field, perimeter, and rooftop accessories. This step includes assessing the following:

  • General condition of rooftop material
  • Debris accumulation, especially in drain system
  • Standing water
  • Low spots
  • Growth of algae, vegetation
  • Counter flashings
  • Coping
  • Joints
  • Boots
  • Drain systems
  • Rooftop equipment (for stability)
  • And much more!
