Commercial Roof Inspections And Surveys

A property inspector usually performs a commercial roof inspection. These assessments are performed to examine the condition of the facility and that everything is up to building codes before a real estate purchase, a lease agreement is signed, if there is a legal issue or if the owner is getting the building insured. In the case of a property inspector, the entire facility is being inspected which includes the roof.

These inspections are usually brief and mostly include a visual inspection. They collect information such as:

  • Fire Safety Inspections
  • Lead-Based Paint Inspections
  • Wood-Destroying Organism Inspections
  • Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
  • Asbestos Inspections
  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Assessments
  • Radon Inspections
  • Roof condition and remaining useful life
  • Building envelope

Starting a commercial roof repair or replacement for your facility can be daunting, but it all starts with an assessment. We know that you have questions, not only about your roof, but also the project process, possible cost, and expectations.

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 transactions 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.
