Often when building a new house, disputes can occur between builders and tradespeople and also between builders and owners. These disputes very often arise because of poor workmanship or non-compliance issues. These issues are not always obvious to the builder, the general building inspector or the owner of the house. The roof might look to be well installed but sometimes there are issues which can cause serious problems sometimes years later when the warranty has expired.
Having inspected nearly 4000 roofs in the last few years (mostly in the insurance industry) I can confidently tell you that approximately 80% of claims are denied due to design, installation and maintenance issues.
Usually when a homeowner has problems with a fairly new house they will automatically blame the builder and this can damage the builder's reputation.
For a minimal fee, Blue Sky Roof Inspections can check all new roofing work to make sure that it complies to the relevant Codes of Practice, that the correct materials have been used, and that the roof has been installed in a professional manner.
Obviously the best time to get an independent roof inspection done is prior to paying the invoice for the new roof. All defects or issues can then be corrected before payment is made.
Another benefit of having a 'Blue Sky' Roof Inspection is that once your roofing trades know that their work is going to come under scrutiny, they will hopefully make sure that their work meets all the appropriate standards.
Any homeowner who is told by their builder that their roof will be independently inspected will surely have nothing but praise for their builder.
For a competitive price, a lot of future roofing headaches and disputes can be avoided, so why not call me for a friendly chat about these matters.
