INSPECTION PROCEDURES

The starting point of the Inspection should be the interior of the building. The interior walls and ceilings should be checked for signs of water staining. After inspecting the interior a thorough inspection of the exterior walls should be made along with the roof system.

The following roof components should be inspected:

Flashing: These are the protection for the membrane termination and often provide a waterproof cover at the membrane termination. These include Counter- flashing, expansion joint covers, copings and flashing at walls and curbs. A variety of problems may occur at these vulnerable locations.

Penetrations: These are pipes, drains, vents, stacks and other items that penetrate the roof membrane. These MUST be flashed properly to assure a watertight roof system.

Field Membrane – What to look for:

· Open seams excessive blisters, wrinkles, ridges or areas of non-adhered membrane.
· Worn spots holes or deteriorated areas of the membrane.
· Deteriorated, areas of surface coating on the membrane.
· Adequate, drainage and ponding problems of the membrane.
· Areas around rooftop equipment that may have been degraded by leaks or spills or punctured by dropped equipment parts.
