Roof & Building Envelope Consulting
ROOF AND BUILDING ENVELOPE CONSULTING IS CRITICAL
Roof and building envelope evaluations are critical for uncovering problems due to lack of maintenance, improper installation, improper design or materials used. These problems can lead to costly issues such as increased energy costs, mold growth, and premature deterioration of structures.
Roofing systems and building envelopes are complex. You need an experienced team who can assess your facilities, identify deficiencies, and guide you toward unique solutions that will fix any roofing or building envelope problem.

Proper design is critical when remedial work is needed. Inadequate or flawed designs result in a reduced useful life span of the building envelope component or system.
It’s important to examine the envelope assembly from the building interior as well as from the exterior. Roof inspectors should be trained to observe all phases of installation to ensure the materials comply with project documents.
Present new technologies on air/water barrier testing during construction that comply with commissioning requirements.
