What we look for during a free commercial roofing inspection

What do we look for during a free commercial roofing inspection? A lot! With over 45 years of experience, we know what kind of problems might arise in your current commercial healthcare, manufacturing, or retail roof or long before they happen. In addition, we’re happy to consult on your next upcoming project for free as well. Here are some of the things we keep an eye out for:


Membrane splitting at Frito-Lay Corporate Headquarters

The State of Existing Membrane

During our free commercial roofing inspection, it’s important that we take a close look at your project’s existing membrane. That’s because when we specify a system we take the project size, location, and building use into consideration.  However, if the existing roof’s membrane is very aged and broken down, we may have to specify more layers (plies) in our system.

Structural Issues

As far as potential roofing problems go, structural issues are a big one we look out for! Structural issues can vary in size and kind. But if we see too many soft spots, sagging, or other signs of structural stress we will recommend bringing in a structural engineer to investigate further.  Luckily, this very rarely happens.
