Roofs are something that can easily be forgotten about. That is, until something goes wrong. Most people won’t even think about roof maintenance until the winter storms hit and water starts to seep through into the building. All of this is avoidable with the proper team of experts. Get ahead of the winter storms with a commercial roof assessment from Kodiak Roofing.

Roof Assessments

When you need a professional opinion on how to best maintain or repair your commercial building’s roof, we are your go-to company in the Reno and Sacramento areas. When assessing your roof, we do a full walkthrough to make sure there’s nothing missed. We begin by checking the roof for structural integrity and damage that may be present. While walking the roof, we will measure the area to allow for accurate quote estimations if new roofing is needed.

After the walk through, we will core the roof to determine if the roof has one single layer or if another roof has been placed on top. The thickness will also help us determine the length of roof fasteners that will be needed. Finally, we will seal it back up and make it weathertight.  

Our walkthroughs allow us to make the best assessments of the integrity of your roof and determine the future steps of maintaining it. If your roof is in good health we will guide you to our roof maintenance program or if there are issues we will provide the various options to fix them.
