Roofing Problem: Parking structure (four story) leaks were unresolved for many years. Roofing Contractors were giving the Building Engineer a different answer for each roofer inspecting the site with no clear course to resolve with certainty.
Roofing Answer: We were retained as a Consultant to develop Specifications and obtain bids.
The concrete roof deck limited pinpointing leak origin, yet we observed that the roof leaks were primarily at the perimeter, isolating the issue to scupper drains at the parapet walls, and deteriorated felt underlayment beneath the tile mansard.
The original organic felt tested negative for asbestos content, and was removed. The mission style tile was salvaged for reuse apart from minor handling breakage and the replacement tiles were dispersed to create a uniform appearance. A new polymer modified, self adhesive underlayment was selected for its ability to self seal around fastener penetrations and the tile was reinstalled with a tie wire system to create an economical and extremely durable solution. The project came in so far under budget, Management elected to seal the central main roof area as well, followed by the twelve story main roof areas.

TestimonialI'd like to let you know what a pleasure it is to work with you. I have told more than one client that when it comes to putting on a new roof, the level of detail required to ensure we are selecting the appropriate roof, the right contractor and thereafter receiving an impeccable installation is the result of hiring a roof consultant like yourself. I was first referred to you by a client and I am very grateful. I have had nothing but approbation for your services and the level of detail and expedient communication you generate. I will continue to recommend you to all my clients. D. Iversen Glacier Peak Management Services, Inc.

The roofing guru – Saving your money and time since 1989.
If you've got an extra moment, here's the story:
We were retained to write Specifications and conduct the final inspection at a shopping center in Orange County, California. The Broker obtained three (3) bids, one from their Contractor, the second obtained from the Manufacturer's Rep. and we recommended a third Contractor, who turned out to be the low bidder.
Prior to signing the Contract, he had a question about unused equipment on the roof and mentioned "they call you their roofing Guru."
