Hiring a reliable contractor for the needs of your roof ensures you get quality workmanship. Certifications allow you to determine the expertise of the professionals you’re hiring.
In this post, your local roofing expert discusses the benefits of working with a Haag-certified contractor.
What Is Haag Certification?
The Haag-Certified Inspector (HCI) program is classified into three courses, which are the Commercial, Residential, and Wind damage courses. These courses are taught by practicing forensic engineers.
The course on residential roofs covers training on damage inspection of sloped roofs commonly found on residential establishments. Composition, wood, tile, metal, slate and fiber cement/synthetics are the roofing products covered in the residential course.
The commercial roofs course tackles damage assessment of flat roofing systems on commercial buildings. Roofing products covered in this course include built-up, mod-bit, TPO, PVC, EPDM, SPF, metal roofs, and vegetated roof systems.
Lastly, the Wind Damage course covers wind damage to the whole building and not just on roofs. This will include an extensive study of basic wind characteristics, hail formation, thunderstorms, tornadoes and hurricanes.
Why Choose a Haag-Certified Contractor?
Haag-Certified Inspectors are knowledgeable in inspection safety, roof area calculations, codes and industry standards, and weather characteristics. They are well-versed in major roofing types such as slate, asphalt, wood, tile, metal, single-ply roofs and more. They are trained in analyzing how hail and wind interact with roofing. Apart from that, they have an in-depth understanding of manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, maintenance, mechanical damage and repair costs for major roofing types.
Wind Damage-Certified Inspectors utilize advanced techniques to accurately assess and document the condition of an entire building after a wind event. They can differentiate damage caused by wind from issues caused by natural or mechanical factors.
