You may be wondering why use a roof inspector as opposed to a building inspector? Simply put building inspectors are not roofing experts.
Sure they can detect obvious issues such as metal rust or broken roof tiles, but they know very little about poor roof designs and the relevant codes of practice with respect to `Australian Roofing Standards`
Here`s a typical scenario we see time and time again. A potential buyer/home owner engages the services of a building inspector to inspect their property. Once the the roof has been given the all clear the property owner begins renovations to the property only to discover water leaks appearing down the track.
On first appearances the roof seemed in good condition but what the building inspector failed to report was that the roof was poorly designed and did not meet `Australian Roofing Standard` Why ? because he`s not a roofing expert
As a result water damage has occurred to one or more of the following areas:
- Timber flooring
- Personal belongings
Sure, your insurance company can rectify the internal water damage but you will be greatly inconvenienced plus you`re still left with the issue of rectifying all the roof defects which can end up costing you thousands of dollars. Why? because insurance companies will NOT cover you for roof works unless its `storm damage` related.
Undetected roof defects on commercial properties can be even more devastating. Imagine you`ve just purchased a commercial property only to receive a call from your property manager later on telling you there have been major roof leaks which has resulted in water damage to the tenants machinery ,products, equipment etc.
As a result, the tenant may put a legal claim against you for loss of business/productivity. To make matters even worse you later discover your roof is riddled with roof issues which YOU must now fork out from your own pocket to rectify. This could end up costing you very large sums of money as most insurance companies DO NOT cover you for:
- Poorly designed roofs
- Wear and tear/maintenance
- Poor workmanship
All these headaches could have been avoided if you had a professional roof assessment report carried out BEFORE you purchased the property .
