Following the announcement, NRCIA provides education, certification, marketing requisites, and technology to members seeking to upgrade to Forensic ROOF(R) Inspectors and start providing roof inspections with precise and detailed reports for their clients. These reports can help roofing contractors make informed decisions and respond to any issues in a timely manner.
Roofing professionals who become Forensic ROOF(R) Inspectors will be qualified to carry out roof assessments to examine whether a roofing system complies with building code, meets the manufacturer’s installation specification requirements, evaluate workmanship and third-party damage responsibility, and rule out possible roof damage causes. This certification also allows holders to testify in court to express their opinion on whether a roofer followed the correct procedures and performed their job adequately, as well as collaborate with engineers.
With the Forensic ROOF(R) Inspector tier, members will be provided with educational materials encompassing a training portfolio, research on industry trends and best practices, regulatory and legislative monitoring, and the opportunity to join an inspector on-site to observe their work. They will be also allowed to use NRCIA’s Forensic(R) logo and trademark alongside the Forensic ROOF(R) trademark, gain access to a member directory profile, and get featured in a new member press release.
To further streamline their inspections, NRCIA also gives Forensic ROOF(R) Inspectors access to inspection reporting, estimating and certifying software, a members-only app, and CRM.
NRCIA believes that a Forensic ROOF(R) inspection certificate can be successfully turned into an additional stream of income for roofing contractors by promoting this service to mortgage companies, realtors, insurers, claims adjusters, and contractors.
“The NRCIA has long been recognized for its commitment to quality roof inspections, and the addition of Forensic ROOF(R) Inspections further solidifies its position as the industry leader in providing comprehensive roof assessment services,” an NRCIA representative said. “With this new member benefit, roofing companies can confidently ensure compliance, assess workmanship, and facilitate insurance claims with ease.”
