Elements Management will perform regularly scheduled and as-needed site inspections throughout the duration of construction, acting as your second set of eyes. Each site inspection is followed up with a detailed field report complete with photographic evidence that relates to a site plan and a list of concerns and their associated recommendations. We have only one priority: our client's best interests.
Independent roof inspections can provide several benefits, including:
1. Objectivity: An independent inspector has no vested interest in the outcome of the inspection and can provide an unbiased assessment of the roof's condition.
2. Expertise: A professional inspector has the knowledge and experience to identify potential issues and evaluate the overall condition of the roof.
3. Peace of mind: An independent roof inspection can give property owners and managers confidence that their roof is in good condition or identify any issues that need to be addressed.
4. Prioritizing and Budgeting: An independent roof inspection will give you a clear understanding of the condition of your roof, and any repairs or replacements that need to be made, which will help you prioritize the work and budget for it.
5. Insurance: An independent roof inspection may be required by your insurance company to prove that your roof is in good condition, so you can avoid any issues with claims in the future.
When you write a book, editors proofread it for errors. This isn’t because you’re a sloppy writer, it’s because you can easily miss details when you’re so deeply engrossed in a large undertaking such as a book. The same can be said of a roof. Think of Elements Management as the editor. We act as a second set of eyes in offering third-party quality control on your roof construction project. So often owners rely solely on the roofer to complete the project, and no one realizes that a detail has been missed until it’s become a huge issue. That’s like putting all your eggs in one basket on a project that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to install, and potentially thousands more to repair.
A third-party inspection is an independent evaluation of the work being done on a roof during the construction process. The inspector’s role is to ensure that the work being done meets the relevant building codes and standards, as well as the specifications outlined in the construction contract. It's important to note that the inspector is not responsible for the supervision of the contractor or the construction process. They are there to evaluate the work done and report any issues. The contractor remains responsible for the work and the construction process.
Third-party quality control monitoring gives you an experienced representative that can work out details with the contractor, architect, and warranty inspector, as well as ensures compliance with roofing specifications and coordination of the roofing project as it relates to the project from start to finish. Additionally, the inspections can help to ensure that the work being done is of high quality and meets the standards outlined in the construction contract. They can also help to protect the property owner or developer from potential liability issues.
Elements Management offers either part-time monitoring (1-2 days per week) or a set number of site visits scheduled at pivotal times during construction. During each inspection, we verify that:
• The roofing materials comply with approved submittals.
• The roofing meets the requirements of the specification and plan details.
• The roofing is installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications and recommended quality control.
• Coordinate with the manufacturer to conduct final inspection and close-out documents
Our detailed reports are time-sensitive to allow for early detection of potential issues and to provide opinions and recommendations for:
• Unforeseen conditions and circumstances
• Change orders
• Quality control
There are many benefits to utilizing a third-party for your construction project, from improved quality control, to cost savings, increased safety, better communication, and to compliance with standards and regulations. Elements Management can identify potential issues early on and act as a liaison between the owner, contractor, and other stakeholders to facilitate open communication and speedy resolution. Third party inspectors are invaluable resources to independent evaluation of the construction process to ensure that the work is being done to the specified standards.
