Low Slope Roofing Inspections

Roofs Protect 90% of your building's Interior

Water > Mould > Rot

Low-slope and flat roofs are most often used in commercial buildings, for good reason. They’re cost-effective and fairly easy to install. They can even be more energy efficient. Easily accessible, they provide an ideal location for HVAC units, solar panels and communication equipment. But the same characteristics that make low-slope and flat roofs so effective can lead to major problems — if not properly maintained.


What does it all mean for your roof’s longevity and your budget?


Understanding the history of the different components and their interaction with each other is key to understanding the cost, as well as the value, of your roof system.


The Probem

Low-slope and flat roofs can’t shed water as quickly as a steeper one can, which means there’s a greater chance of water leaking through the roof during periods of prolonged, wind-driven rain. If not properly maintained, drainage becomes an issue. Ponding water can cause the roof to sag under the weight and lead to interior damage.


The Inspection

We analyze and assess the condition of your roof to determine any causes of failure. This may include destructive testing and infrared scanning. This detailed analysis enables us to provide you with the most comprehensive information you need for informed decisions regarding repair and restoration strategies.
