One of the most important parts of a building envelope is the roof covering. A roof covering protects the building components and provides energy savings through the use of insulation.
EES staff has the highest credentials, including Registered Roof Observer (RRO), Registered Roof Consultant (RRC), and Professional Engineer, who can provide roof-consulting services for residential and commercial buildings, including quality assurance and forensic inspections.
Experience has shown that improper installation (which can be caused by inadequate specifications or details, or an installer who takes short cuts) can lead to major roof failures, costing owners or insurance companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. These types of issues can be avoided if a quality assurance inspection is performed during the initial phases of a roof installation. Additionally, when performed as part of an annual maintenance program these inspections can prolong the service life of a roof.
