(See below for more information on the Limited Service Agreement, priority service, discounted rates for future services, transferability and scope of services.)
VISUAL ROOF™: A visual, nondestructive inspection that is limited to checking whether the roof currently has leaks or, based on its current condition, has a likelihood to leak during a LeakFREE® Roof Certification period. The inspection encompasses visually inspecting interior ceilings, exterior roof eaves for signs of leakage and a rooftop current and potential leak evaluation only. If a different or a more comprehensive inspection is desired, then the Forensic ROOF® inspection should be purchased.
FORENSIC ROOF®: A separate comprehensive roof inspection that can address, at Client’s option, may include but is not limited to, the following for an additional charge(s): asbestos testing of roof materials, mold presence, building code compliance, manufacturer’s installation specification compliance, workmanship evaluation, inspection of walking decks, water testing, determination of roof slope, ponding, drainage and structural engineering analysis of the weight of the roof material to the structural design. Inspection(s) shall be performed by outside independent experts in the relative field and can be coordinated by Inspector. Approximate cost: $1,800 plus specialized inspection charges.
SUSTAINABLE ROOF™: A roof that it is in sufficient condition to be repaired by an authorized repairman to last the duration of the LeakFREE® Roof Certification period should a leak occur. A “ Sustainable Roof”™ does not imply the roof or portion of roof would withstand damage caused by acts of God or by third parties, which acts could necessitate replacement of the roof. A repair to a “ Sustainable Roof”™ is expected to last through the LeakFREE® Roof Certification period only, and may still need to be repaired or replaced at some time after the LeakFREE® Roof Certification period expires.
