Hi-Tech Systems commercial roof inspections are dispatched quickly, conducted by a trained member of our staff and include a thorough investigation with documentation of the roof in its entirety.
The inspection includes the following:
Inspect the entire roof area for damage that may have resulted from debris, nature or service traffic i.e., HVAC unit maintenance.
Remove all debris that may have accumulated on the commercial roof surface including leaves, branches, dirt build up, loose nails and screws, to ensure it does not restrict drainage or cause roof membrane damage.
Inspect and clean all roof drains, overflow drains, scupper drains and grates to ensure a free flow of water and snow melt.
Probing of welds at membrane field seams, T-joints, roof curbs and roof penetrations to verify no voids have developed at weld points.
Inspect all sheet metal and counter flashings at copings, gutter collector boxes and downspouts to verify that they are properly attached, sealed and free from any failures or voids.
Verify all HVAC unit access doors and covers are installed and secured as they can blow off and damage the roof.
Inspect and verify roof access scuttle, ladder and locking mechanism are operational and all flashings are in place and secure.
Commercial Roof Inspections
Commercial Roof Maintenance Agreements Understanding Your Warranty Did you know that to keep your commercial roofing manufacturer’s warranty in effect, inspections and routine maintenance are REQUIRED, and failure to follow the conditions of their warranty could actually VOID it? Warranties issued by manufacturers become potentially effective only when the commercial roof actively leaks; there is no provision for anticipation of leaks or corrective action to any roof assembly components affected by leaks.
Preventive Roof Maintenance Agreement As certified installers for the leading manufacturers in the commercial roof industry, we are experienced with the manufacturer’s warranty conditions and clauses. All of Hi-Tech Systems Roof Maintenance Agreements include performing the required inspections and repairs to keep the manufacturer’s warranty valid and up to date. Our Roof Maintenance Agreement is intended to provide owners of facilities an alternative to the manufacturer’s commercial roof system warranty. These warranties generally provide no protection against incidental damages to the roof by lack of maintenance and no provision for preventive maintenance of the roofing assemblies.
Service & Maintenance Agreement With a Service & Maintenance Agreement from Hi-Tech Systems, you will get a dedicated service technician who personally develops a relationship with you and your commercial roof. You will also get pre-scheduled inspections: bi-monthly, quarterly, semiannual or annual. Once or twice a year (or more often if conditions dictate) an experienced roof auditor will walk the commercial roof areas covered by the Service & Maintenance Agreement, conduct a visual audit, perform an informal non-destructive survey of the roof(s) and provide a written report with pictures on existing roof conditions. All routine maintenance required will be noted for corrective action, and documented in our Facility View program. Following each audit, a Hi-Tech maintenance crew will be dispatched to the facility to perform routine maintenance to the commercial roof. If the roof membrane has been damaged by wind, debris, maintenance contractors, or facility maintenance personnel, a written proposal for the cost to repair such damage will be provided with a thorough report of the findings. After a facility representative has accepted the Hi-Tech repair proposal, the maintenance crew will complete repairs to the damaged commercial roof areas during the time of maintenance work.
