Building Science - Roof System Condition Assessment
“Out of Sight, Out of Mind” approach could be more costly than you ever imagined.
Pinchin’s Roof System Condition Assessment is a top-down solution to a bottom line problem.
Your facility’s roof system is one of the most vulnerable — and most costly to replace — components of the building envelope. If not regularly monitored and maintained, a typical flat roof’s lifespan (20 to 25 years) can be severely reduced, leading to a potentially devastating impact on your bottom line and unnecessary damage to the building and its contents.
Comprehensive Roof System Condition Assessment
A comprehensive Roof System Condition Assessment (RSCA) by a Pinchin specialist will provide you with a thorough understanding of the existing condition to help you ensure your roofing system will achieve the maximum projected life. The RSCA offers a thorough evaluation that is the foundation for an easily manageable and economically sound program for corrective roof repair and maintenance.
We will identify immediate deficiencies, potential problems and develop an ongoing maintenance plan and schedule that incorporates your specific budgetary requirements. If repairs are required, we can manage any part or all of that process, acting on your
behalf to ensure successful completion of the project.
Your Roof System Condition Assessment & Repair includes:
- Visual assessment of current conditions and anticipated life expectancy
- Core-cut analysis
- Detection of deficiencies (e.g. ridges, blisters, premature failure) and potential impact
- Identification of potential roof warranty issues
