Comprehensive Roof Management Surveys provide and in-depth analytical
examination of an existing roof systems construction, condition and
on-going suitability to serve as a primary waterproofing component for the
facility. Client goals and objectives, in addition to information
gathered during the survey, aid in preparing recommendations and budgets
required to maintain or restore the roof systems watertight integrity over
a five (5) year time period.
Roof Plan Drawings:
A scaled, CAD-generated roof plan of each facility is provided to identify
individual roof areas and determine total square footage for the purpose of
establishing budgets. All perimeters and any projections that the client
deems important will be shown on the plan.
Roof Conditions and
Photographs: The roof system's general appearance is examined
to identify membrane surface conditions, flashing conditions, general drainage
characteristics, excessive traffic patterns, etc., and to locate the presence
of contaminants and/or previous repairs. The adjacent building walls are
also examined for conditions that could affect the performance of the roof
system. The conditions of all roof areas is confirmed and documented
with color photographs.
Core cuts are taken on each roof area to identify roof deck type, roof system
components, and to evaluate the general roof membrane condition. Core
cuts are not taken on areas where warranties are in effect. Laboratory
testing may be performed on field and flashing membrane samples to identify
ACRM's (Asbestos Containing Roofing Materials).
Roof Survey Data Forms:
Compilation of all data gathered during the survey, including general
information relating to the individual roof area, historical information, roof
system construction, roof projections, roof system conditions, drainage
characteristics, general comments, and recommendations and budgets are provided
on an easy-to-read data form and via the IRS OnLine Asset Management System.
Recommendations and Budgets:
Based upon the existing construction and conditions of each roof area, accurate
budget figures are established for any required roofing work.
Summary: The data gathered is compiled, with client input on
priorities and available moneys, into a comprehensive asset management
program. Necessary maintenance and re-roofing expenditures are forecasted
annually over the life of the 5 year program. All information gathered is stored
and compiled on the IRS OnLine Asset Management System. Clients can
then take advantage of the Life-Cycle Cost Tracking, Capital Allocation
Modeling, Financial Planning, Work Order, Reporting and document
storage features of the IRS OnLine Asset Management System to aid them in
the management of their enrolled facilities.
