At Exterior Remodel & Design, Inc., our roofing professionals value the importance of routine roofing inspections. Performing regular checkups on your roof and surrounding area helps keep you updated on every small and large changes or damages to your home. Checkups for commercial roofs are just as important as routine residential checkups. But do you know the difference between a roof inspection and survey?

Inspections for Roofing Conditions

Roofing inspections are important tasks to perform to examine the condition of your residential or commercial roof. If you have a commercial roof, regular inspections are vital with making sure your roof is up to building codes.

If you work with a professional roofing company for commercial roof inspections, they will perform a variety of checks of your roof including:

  • Fire Safety Inspections
  • Lead-Based Paint Inspections
  • Environmental Site Assessments
  • Asbestos Inspections
  • Radon Inspections
  • Indoor Air Quality Assessments
  • Roof Conditions
  • Roof Remaining Life Quality

Inspections are also important for residential roofs and help the owner examine the performance of gutters, flashing, shingles, and other important aspects of the roof. 

Surveys Prior to Roof Repair

Quite different from roofing inspections, surveys are usually performed by roofing professionals before a planned roofing project. The purpose of the survey is to examine the condition and quality of the roof membrane, structure, and insulation. In many cases, core samples and facility measurements are collected during the roof survey; this data is used to process the conditions of a variety of your commercial roof’s elements.

In many cases, roofing surveys include a report sent to the building owner with technical specifications. The normal process includes a call to a professional roofing company to quote a project, to which they will send a representative to perform surveys to create project quotes.
