1. Complete a form for each major building. Connected groups of smaller buildings may be included on one form.
2. Any “yes” answer signifies a condition that needs to be repaired or examined by a qualified professional.
3. Schedule repairs promptly. Roofs that require repair are more susceptible to windstorm damage.
4. Complete this form twice a year and after severe storms.
1. Are there any cracks, splits or loose seams in the roof covering?
2. Is there any blistering (may resemble bubbles) of the roof covering?
3. Is there any ponding or other evidence of water accumulation?
4. Are drains plugged or potentially blocked by debris or other material?
5. Are there any bare spots in the gravel or stone covering?
6. Is there any evidence of damage from hail?
7. Are gutters and downspouts clear of leaves or other obstructions?
8. Is there any loose or missing flashing around the edges (top and side), especially near the corners?
9. Are there any signs, antennas, microwave dishes or other roof-mounted equipment with loose or disconnected supports or guy wires?
10. Is there any evidence of leaking on the top floor of the building?
Notes: Avoid torch-applied roof coverings. If it is necessary to use a torch to repair an existing roof or install a new covering, require that a fire-watch with multiple fire extinguishers be immediately available on the roof. This is considered hot work. The owner should complete a hot work permit before the contractor commences his work.
