Inspections after hail storm

MAG Roofing offers a full comprehensive roof inspection whether on an as needed basis or as part of a preventative maintenance program.  Roofs are constantly presented with challenges and faced with adversity.  Whether it is due to extreme weather conditions, structural movement, foot traffic, defects, abuse, or lack of maintenance your roof can be negatively affected and result in costly repairs or a premature failure. We recommend at least two inspections to be performed every year; ideally, once in the spring and again in the fall.  We strongly suggest to have your roof inspected after any occurrence where the roof may have incurred damage, such as construction, fire or a serious storm.

We are dedicated to stopping small problems before they become larger ones, maximizing the life of the existing roof systems.  When we visit a commercial or industrial building for a scheduled inspection we look for a broad range of potential problems such as:

  • Open pipe flashing
  • Roof top debris
  • Open field seams
  • Open wall flashing sealant
  • Plugged roof drains
  • Punctures and tears
  • Ponding areas
  • Leaking scuppers
  • Coping issues
  • A/C curb de-lamination
  • Weather & Storm damage

We will closely examine all components of the roofing system and compile a detailed report.  Within this report we will provide core samples, infrared scan, roof assembly data, detailed drawings of data and wind certification requirements along with the inspections to give the building owner an extensive “view” of their roof system.  A detailed pictometry  report via satellite will be ordered for the building for further data of the roof. The report will list any signs of deterioration, drainage problems, wind storm damage and other circumstances.

These reports are a great source of information for valuing a property and setting a budget.  We also have an inspection service that can be used for legal purposes in determining the value of a property where an expert witness and testimony are utilized.
