A. City Inspectors are limited for time and can officially only inspect to make sure techniques meet Florida Building Code omitting quality issues that devalue your home.
A. Roofing contractors are licensed by (DBPR) the department of professional business and regulation, shoddy workmanship by their "Sub Crews" put them at risk and can also cost them lots of money chasing warranty issues. In most cases if a contractor is demanding higher quality by a Sub Crew, the crews go work elsewhere with more lenient and naïve contractors leaving a limited labor force, 3rd party observation saves the contractor from looking like the bad guy! since crews never know who hired The Roof Inspectors.
A. The Roof Inspectors go deeper than city inspectors. even crawling in your attic, if need be, to insure no moisture damaged wood was left, that too much air pressure wasn't being used to re-nail decking and shingles, we insure that material gauges that sold are used.
A. Cost is relative to the size of your project, with smaller homes costing less than larger projects needing more onsite inspections. To put this investment into perspective, future issues due to lack of quality control will cost significantly more than our oversight. Our fees are 3% of the gross contract amount. In many cases roofing companies will split these fees, since quality control prevents their own crews from taking shortcuts, also preserving their reputation as a quality company. We will even help you arrange this with your choice of contractors.
