Before you spend a single dime on Repairs or Replacement

Get the data you need to make intelligent decisions.
We’ll document the exact status of all your roofs…
Grade them, assign priorities, and give you a detailed plan of action.

If you have 10 or more roofs in your building network, chances are high that you don’t really even know what to expect from them.

  • Which roofs are in need of immediate repairs?
  • Which ones can probably withstand another year or two—but need to be monitored carefully?
  • Which roofs are in great shape and only need routine maintenance?
  • Which roofs have storm damage that I’m not aware of or can be restored instead of replaced?

The answers to these questions aren’t just a matter of convenience: they’re also a matter of budget constraints. Crossing your fingers and “hoping” you get through the next year isn’t a very good strategy.

That’s why you should take advantage of Castro’s Roof Assessment Program. We’ll give you the data you need to make intelligent decisions about your roofing needs and your budget. We’ll help you prevent small problems from turning into large ones, and in the end, we’ll save you a ton of money.

ipadHere’s how it works:

  • Pictures & Video: We’ll document the exact status of every roof in your system with pictures and videos—this allows for complete transparency. If we say a roof has a problem, you’ll see it with your OWN TWO EYES.
  • Document Conditions: A full report for each property will be written up and stored on an online portal for instant access and review. Every roof is given an A to F grade so it’s easy to understand.
  • Determine Priorities: We’ll review the results with you and discuss the relative importance of each roof so a priority plan can be created.
  • Discuss Budget & Action Plan: Depending on the grades and priority of each roof, a recommended action plan will be given that shows:
    • Emergency Situations: Roofs that have current leaks that must be repaired now.
    • reportsRemedial Work: Roofs that have problems but are not urgent to be fixed immediately.
    • ReRoof: Roofs that need to be replaced; when and how much it will cost. Generally roofs that will require repairs that cost 35% or more of replacement cost, we will recommend reroofing.

Armed with this information, you can better plan your budget for each year. In addition, we strongly recommend that sign up for a Castro Maintenance Plan which will continue to monitor your roofs and update their status on line annually, semi-annually, or quarterly.

Roof assessment: Seven key questions

Question everything. “In God we trust, all others bring data.” William Edwards Deming

In an era of downsizing, consolidated responsibilities, and myriad other challenges maintenance and engineering managers must deal with daily, it is no wonder organizations embark upon major capital roofing projects with a mindset of, “whatever is easiest and most convenient.” More often than not, though, that mindset produces a roof that does not deliver the expected performance life.

Roof Assessment

Before engaging in a roof replacement, building owners and managers should carefully consider the exact reasons for replacing the roof. Questions to ask and answer are:

  1. Am I engaging in this project as a reaction to leaks?
  2. Am I engaging in this project because current warranties have expired?
  3. Does the roof really need replacement, can its life be extended, or is it a candidate for restoration?
  4. Should I consider retrofitting the roof?
  5. Are strategic repairs a viable option?
  6. What proof do I have that the roof needs to be replace?
  7. Has the roof fail do to storm damage?

The real challenge for building owners and managers is deciding the most appropriate and cost-effective course of action. If the manager can convince the organization’s top management the roof is a real asset and deserves the same treatment as any other valuable piece of equipment, the next step is to properly assess the actual condition of the roof and prioritize its replacement or repair based on actual conditions. Accurate data is needed to make smart roofing decision instead of best guest.

Before making any decision on specifying a new roof or repairing the existing system, managers need to perform a total assessment of the roof, including an infrared scan for wet insulation. A certified technician with a minimum Level 2 — not a guy with a gun and something to sell — should perform the infrared-scan assessment.

Too often, a roof project begins with a thumbnail outline of services and progresses with bids, based on nothing more substantial than a contractor’s sales pitch. The lowest price typically drives the manager’s purchasing decision. Accompanying these components in many cases are questionable warranties manufacturers provide solely to make managers and owners feel safe by accepting the lowest bid.

But a manufacturer too often will include qualifying language in the warranty that limits the company’s liability and leaves managers and the organization without coverage they believed would protect them and their purchase decision. At best, warranties cover the repair of water ingress, but they do not resolve the root cause and restoration of the damage the leaks cause, including replacing wet insulation.
