Rooftop Units and Penetrations during Fort Lauderdale roof inspections.

Rooftop penetrations can include any vents, hatches, stacks, skylights, and HVAC equipment penetrations on your roof. Again, you will need to determine the specific order of which penetrations you will inspect first, or your path across the rooftop.

While inspecting these, ensure that any condensation from HVAC units is moving to drains properly. Check all rain caps on stacks to ensure they still keep the weather out of the stacks. You should check all seams in roof units to ensure they are watertight, and then check the area surrounding rooftop penetrations to make sure there hasn’t been any damage to the roof surface during installation or repairs.

Surface Area of the Roof

This is the simplest part of the roof inspection but is still extremely important in preserving the life of the roof. As you are walking the roof, you will be in a constant state of inspecting the surface area or field of the roof. Check for any physical damage from tools, heavy objects, hail, vandalism, or excessive foot traffic. Our engineers will be able to easily identify these damages in the roof surface because you are walking right over the top of them. If your roof is sprayed with polyurethane foam or has a coating on it, check for blisters or separation between the roof layers while you walk.

Flashings, Edges, Terminations, and Expansion and Control Joints

Our engineers walk around the edge of your roofing system, check for any cracks or split at roof terminations and edges. This is often a highly vulnerable part and problems are likely to be found here. If you have expansion joints or metal flashing, be sure to examine those and determine whether or not they are performing as expecting. Any masonry walls should be inspected to identify areas of moisture penetration or wall deterioration if any.

The starting point of the Inspection should be the interior of the building. The interior walls and ceilings should be checked for signs of water staining. After inspecting the interior a thorough inspection of the exterior walls should be made along with the roof system.

The following roof components should be inspected:

Flashing: These are the protection for the membrane termination and often provide a waterproof cover at the membrane termination. These include Counter- flashing, expansion joint covers, copings and flashing at walls and curbs. A variety of problems may occur at these vulnerable locations.

Penetrations: These are pipes, drains, vents, stacks and other items that penetrate the roof membrane. These MUST be flashed properly to assure a watertight roof system.

Field Membrane – What to look for:

· Open seams excessive blisters, wrinkles, ridges or areas of non-adhered membrane.
· Worn spots holes or deteriorated areas of the membrane.
· Deteriorated, areas of surface coating on the membrane.

Construction Inspections

Construction Inspections

EMA Engineers provide   construction inspections reporting to developers, contractors, architects:

We offer field observation reporting on structural engineering work-in-progress. Our reports include photographic and written daily reports depicting various construction activities.

We attend construction meetings, construction coordination meeting and post-construction review. We also provide detailed field observations reporting on a monthly basis prepared by structural engineers.

Our process of observation and reporting can include review daily construction activities. We check compliance with structural drawings for projects.

Building Construction Monitoring

EMA prepares and review construction inspections of contract documents, job specifications, change order details and review, and project final closeout documents.

EMA Field Observation Reporting & Construction Observation Activities
The architect’s responsibilities for observing construction and determining if the contractor is supporting the design intent fall into six categories:
construction observation, document clarification, submittal review.
payments to the contractor, certification of completion, and project closeout.
Observing Construction Inspections.
The architect is typically required by contract to keep the owner apprised of construction progress and quality. The owner relies on these reports to keep up with the progress and quality of the work, and a close owner architect relationship can result from this direct form of communication.
To document what the engineers has observed in the field and enable the delivery of this information to the client, the architect can use AIA Document G711™, Architect’s Field Report. As with all document types issued repeatedly during a project, each report should be dated and sequentially numbered
