Roofing System Evaluations The proper installation of a roof on a building is a vital aspect to the building’s construction and its overall ownership costs. With a significant number of construction litigation cases stemming from roofing issues, the evaluation of your roofing system by a third
party is not only vital, but it provides reassurance and future cost savings.

Intertek can help confirm the building’s design intent is met by quantifying the air leakage of a completed building.
