Periodic visual inspections can increase the service life of a roof assembly by informing a building Owner of deficient conditions and repairs needed. By performing repairs and continuing with regular inspections owners can maximize the effective service life of the roof and thereby reduce the roof’s life cycle costs. 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.
R&P Roof Consulting offers a system that will assist you in determining your roofing cost management requirements. Reserve fund studies are fine but limited in that they provide conceptual averages that may not necessarily reflect your building’s individual needs and circumstances. By lending too much credence to the averages one may find himself in a situation whereby a roofing system is replaced far too early or conversely put off far too long and costly and inconvenient leaks occur.

Thermographic Infrared Scanning 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 Thermographic Infrared Scan can save the owner significant costs by allowing him/her to replace only the damaged areas of roofing rather than the entire system.
