What’s a roof survey? The basics explained

We can visually inspect roofs to assess their condition. If your roof appears unsafe or has hard-to-access areas, we’ll use specialist pole cams to inspect it as well as all its components, such as chimneys and guttering.

Our detailed reports give you an accurate estimate of:

  • A roof’s life expectancy
  • The approximate cost of replacing or repairing your roof
  • The condition of your roof and all its components

Accurate roof inspections for insurance claims

Let’s be honest; insurance companies are rarely trying to help us out. If you need to claim to repair your roof, your insurer will likely try to find a way to wriggle out of coughing up the cash.

Obtain one of our accurate roof survey reports that details the extent of the damage, repair costs and cause of the problem, and your insurer will have no choice but to live up to its obligations.

You might be required to obtain an impartial report before you can make a claim.

Expert Witness Reports

If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to take legal action to rectify your roof or claim against a contractor, then we also have RICS Chartered Surveyors who are able to produce an Expert Witness Report to be used as evidence in court.
