1Does home or building insurance cover infrared inspections?
Insurance will usually only cover water damage caused by wind-driven rain breaking a window or damaging a roof. If the water damage to your building was caused by a lack of effective maintenance on your behalf, then insurance would most likely not cover it or any of the potential damage that can be attributed to previous water damage. Because insurance companies usually only cover water damage that is visible, our infrared scans can help make hidden water damage visible, so you have an opportunity to claim it on your insurance.
2How do I know if I need an inspection?
We encourage anyone with a roof to invest in regular inspections. In addition to protecting your investment and minimizing downtime due to roof renovations or replacements, keep in mind that your roof is subject to the elements 24hours a day, 365 days a year. Any roofing system will claim to be environmentally resistant, but all commercial roofs, no matter the quality, will degrade over time due to weathering. Often, the degradation is uneven and results in extremely expensive replacements if left unchecked. We highly recommend regular roof inspections to monitor weathering patterns and to adopt what we like to refer to as a “precision intervention” strategy to take care of small issues before they evolve into major damages. Adopting a precision intervention approach to roof care will ensure that your roof lasts as long as it possibly can. Additionally, regular roof inspections can help to increase insurance payouts in the event that a claim needs to be filed.
3How much does a commercial roof inspection cost?
Not as much as a replacement! As with all services, the price of a roof inspection varies depending on the roof itself. Style, size, location, and hazards such as overhanging trees all factor into the final cost. Take advantage of our free, no obligation consultation and estimate today!
4What is Non-Destructive Testing?
Nondestructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science and technology industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. The terms nondestructive examination (NDE), nondestructive inspection (NDI), and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) are also commonly used to describe this technology. Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting, and research.
