Services Provided

ROOFTECH has both in depth experience in roofing and waterproofing as well as a strong technical background in design and construction administration. We offer a broad range of services including:

Architectural/Engineering Design Services: ROOFTECH provides complete architectural and engineering design services. Most of our work involves the design for the correction of structural, drainage, exterior facade, roofing, and waterproofing problems on existing facilities. Our projects include some of the most prestigious projects in the Southwest, because we produce results. We design cost effective solutions that work.

Architectural Plan & Spec Review: ROOFTECH provides design review services for Architects, Roofing Contractors, Owners, and General Contractors. This review includes an evaluation of the roofing and waterproofing design for compliance to "generally accepted industry standards" and building codes, as well as constructability.

Storm Damage Assessment: ROOFTECH provides damage assessments, including the evaluation of all types of damage to roofs, including hail, wind, and fire damage. These investigations often include a variety of testing including moisture surveys, core sample analysis including the desaturation of felts, Factory Mutual Field Uplift Testing, and hail impact testing.

Roof Inspection and Analysis: ROOFTECH performs roof inspections on all types of roofing and waterproofing projects. These inspections typically include a review of the existing construction documents and other historical data related to the project, an interior inspection of the problem areas, a visual inspection of the roof and related areas, and exploratory core samples to determine the construction. The emphasis is on understanding and solving roofing and waterproofing problems, no matter how complex.

Roof Design: ROOFTECH design services include comprehensive plans and specification for all types of roofing and waterproofing projects, including historical, high rise, industrial, educational, and institutional buildings. Special attention is paid to the critical issues, including drainage design, wind uplift design, materials selection, and membrane and flashing performance. Our designs are based upon long-term performance and ease of maintenance. We have been leaders in the roofing industry, and many of our details and approaches have been incorporated into Industry Standards Manuals such as the National Roofing Contractors Association and the Roof Consultants Institute.

Forensic Engineering Services: ROOFTECH provides forensic engineering services on a wide range of construction problems associated with the Building Envelope. No firm has the experience in civil/structural engineering and roofing and waterproofing as our forensic team. Our experience involves identifying and solving serious structural design and construction flaws related to wind and water loads, drainage design issues, and exterior wall related issues. Our forensic team of Stephen L. Patterson, Martin Ledford, and Madan Mehta has more than 100 years experience in the field of forensic engineering services.

Roofing/Waterproofing Testing on Existing Roofs: ROOFTECH provides a variety of testing services on existing roofs to assist in the evaluation and analysis of difficult roofing and waterproofing problems. The most common testing performed includes: infrared moisture surveys, capacitance and impedance moisture testing, moisture contents, core sample analysis in accordance with ASTM D2829, Factory Mutual Field Uplift Testing, and water testing to ascertain the source of a specific leak(s).

Quality Control-Inspection Services: ROOFTECH offers a wide range of Quality Control Services related to the testing, inspection, and management of roofing projects under construction. Common testing services in conjunction with quality control includes core sampling in accordance with ASTM D3617, softening points, gradation of roofing gravel, in accordance with ASTM D1863, and moisture content.

Project Management: The Project Manager takes representatives of the client and the contractor through the contract and ensures that lines of communication and expectations are established. The Project Manager facilitates the project from this Preconstruction Conference through Final Acceptance. This person conducts progress meetings, schedules roof observations, coordinates between the client's project team and the contractor, provides cost estimates, recommends pay requests, assembles contract modifications, monitors the project schedule, approves submittals, and provides technical assistance. The Project Architect reviews and approves pay applications and change orders.

Roof Maintenance Program: ROOFTECH offers a roof maintenance program to assist in maintaining the integrity of the roof system. ROOFTECH is equipped and experienced with preparation and maintenance of a database detailing multiple buildings on multiple sites with a variety of roofing types in various existing conditions, enabling ROOFTECH and our clients to monitor roof conditions of existing facilities, forecast life expectancy of existing roofs, schedule roof repairs and/or replacement as conditions dictate, and forecast budgeting costs associated with repairs in a multiple year cycle. ROOFTECH will provide site visits, periodic observations and consultation as necessary to maintain the integrity of the facilities within the scope of this agreement.

Long-Term Planning for Roof Management: ROOFTECH provides assistance with long-term roof management and planning. This includes prioritizing roof maintenance needs, projecting the long-term performance, and budgeting.
