Un-biased Independent Surveys

Our Technical Managers provide professional, free roof condition surveys as part of our industry-leading service.

Conducting a roof survey regularly will ensure that any roof degradation or underlying system damage is discovered early on, protecting the integrity of your roof assets before any major problems arise.

Your Technical Manager will assess your building’s waterproofing performance to ensure it is functioning as intended, if there is a serious risk of imminent failure, or if the system has come to the end of its natural life.

What happens in a roof survey?

Your Technical Manager will assess the condition of your roof and provide a comprehensive report and photographic evidence of their findings. As part of the survey we can provide you with:

  • Roof lifespan assessment
  • Roofing defects analysis
  • U-value calculations
  • Core sampling
  • Nuclear Moisture mapping
  • Drone surveys

What types of roof are suitable for roof survey?

A commercial roof survey and inspection should be carried out every few years alongside your regular annual roof maintenance to keep a close eye on the overall performance of the building’s roofing systems. 

We specialise in all forms of commercial building envelope systems, including flat roofs, pitched roofs, liquid roofing systems, metal systems and green roofing.

Eliminate Disruption to Business Operations

Roof surveys can protect your investment and maximise the service life of the roof system, avoiding any unnecessary disruption to the day-to-day running of the business.

In some instances, an issue may have already been established, such as a failed single-ply roof membrane, asbestos roof encapsulation requirement or water ingress issues, which means an up-to-date roofing survey will ensure that your building’s roof assets are expertly investigated in its most current condition, to guarantee that the optimum waterproofing solution is specified.
