The cost of a visual roof inspection compared to the cost to replace a roof, or portion of it, prematurely can be a very wise investment. In order to realize the maximum service life of existing roofing systems, we recommend this procedure for all building owners.
The look of a roof can have a significant impact on the overall design and perceived value of a home. After all, the roof can make up half of a home’s exterior. Why should your home have only half the curb appeal you desire? Satu Atap can make any home rise above the rest. To make your roof really stand out from your neighbors, consider a pattern, like a diamond. Design possibilities are virtually endless.
Satu Atap has developed a management database which can track an Owner’s roofing information and help determine what the facility needs will be in the next year, the next five years or in the long range.
Moisture surveys can determine if, where, and to what extent detrimental moisture has compromised a roofing system. By making this determination, a building owner may have more options with regard to corrective actions. A moisture survey can save an owner significant costs by allowing him to replace only the damaged areas of roofing rather than the entire system. Moisture surveys can also be a valuable tool to verify if a new roof installation has been installed and completed without moisture compromise.
We recommend annual inspections (as a minimum) for every roof system. Far too often, the cause of a roof failure is the absence of proper maintenance and inspection. Something that starts out small and very repairable when left unchecked, can turn into a very major roof problem. Periodic visual roof inspections and routine maintenance to deficient conditions can increase the long term service life of any roof assembly.
Satu Atap utilizes Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, and Adobe software for all design projects. To serve you better, we can provide all documentation of specifications and design drawings in digital format for your records. We can also save a few trees by posting bid documents and construction administration files electronically.
We can help educate you and your staff on roofing issues and good roofing practice. Whether you are an Owner who wants your facility staff to be more knowledgeable or a design professional who wants to strengthen their roofing knowledge, we can help.
Satu Atap can review your roof project documents to ensure that they meet industry and manufacturer’s standards. There are hundreds of roofing systems on the market today so it is difficult to keep up with them all. Particularly if you are a design professional who is looking at other building systems as well. Our project managers can review the roof specifications and drawings to look at roofing application, detail requirements, warrantibility and overall design consistency. We can also provide quality control in the documentation and ensure a precise and consistent Scope of Work for contractors to bid on.
Satu Atap can provide project management to track your roofing installation to ensure that it is installed in accordance with the contract documents, to troubleshoot any issue that may arise due to unforeseen conditions, and to verify that the Owner is getting the quality job that they are paying for.
Unfortunately, some roofing installations develop problems very quickly after installation, or even worse - they were not installed properly to begin with. Our project managers and field personnel can help determine the cause of an Owner’s roofing issues. Satu Atap utilizes both non-destructive and deconstructive methods to pinpoint roofing problems. Our forensic investigation services can identify the causes of the moisture infiltration and provide clear, detailed information to document the problems and recommend corrective actions.
Quality Control Roof Inspection Service is recognized by the roofing industry as a vital component of successful Roof Construction Management. Many vital areas of a roof installation are not visible for inspection upon completion and many times are already covered over before periodic site inspections can be made.
