Commercial Roof Inspection
A commercial roof inspection is a thorough examination of the roof system by U.S. Commercial Building Inspections of Southern California. Our inspectors will assess the condition of the roof and identify any potential problems or areas of concern in San Diego, Orange and Riverside Counties.
What doesn’t get inspected gets neglected:
Our comprehensive inspection reports will include information on the condition of the roof, as well as pictures, videos, and any recommendations for repairs or replacement.
Why You Need a Commercial Roof Inspection
There are many things that can go wrong with your roof, but there are only two ways to find out what they are: by getting it inspected or by having it fixed when something goes wrong.
If you wait too long, then there may already be damage or leaks, which will cost much more money and time than doing the repairs now would have cost if they were found earlier on.
That is why a commercial roof inspection should be performed regularly to catch any potential issues before it becomes a major problem. In most cases, it is recommended that you schedule one at least every three to five years.
When you hire a professional inspector to inspect a commercial roof, they will typically spend two to three hours or more on-site, depending on the size of the building.
They will examine all aspects of the roof system, including the decking, flashings, gutters, and downspouts.
They will also look for signs of leaks, water damage, rot, or other problems using moisture meters, thermal imaging devices, and drone technology.
Once the inspection is complete, you will receive a detailed report outlining any problems that were found and what needs to be done to fix them.
“A commercial roof inspection is important for any property owner for ongoing maintenance and as part of due diligence for any real estate transaction. Be sure to hire a reputable local building inspector with experience to ensure that you get an accurate assessment of the condition of the property you’re considering purchasing, leasing, or that you own.”
