Did you do a good job?


At what stage(s) on newly installed and exising metal roofs should a quality assurance roof inspection occur and what procedure(s) does it entail?

How do you really know that your roof is installed correctly?

What exactly are you doing here?

I looked at your previous posts and you are asking questions that sound to me like you are suspicious of your roofing contractor.

It depends on the product your looking at. Installation details vary depending on what your installing. What product are you asking about ?


Generally, i would think every 5 yrs to check the condition of the caulkling would be proactive.

You should know the first rainy season if your new roof was installed incrorrectly. If your talking about generally installed correctly we would need to know what product your refering to. Too many variables for installing all the different types of metal roofing.

Corrigated ?, SS ? or stone coated ?

Do not confuse my interest with a contractors work with suspiciousness of contractors' work.

I am indeed interested.

"If your talking about generally installed correctly we would need to know what product your refering to. Too many variables for installing all the different types of metal roofing."


OK so the product that I am referring here is a standing seam metal roof. You as a contractor have just or are in the process of installing it. What are your QA/QC steps?

Nothing to fear folks. Mark is a good guy. He's not 'outing' any of us contractors, but is really interested and looking for relevant answers. ( I've already posted a reply of sorts elsewhere.) If he wants to be anonymous, I won't 'out' him. Just feel free to reply honestly. It may even help you by showing potential clients how you monitor your jobs, etc.

I personally handle all the details. Make sure the panels tops are box-folded and no just cut to lenght relying on the Z bar, closures, or anything else to keep water out.
All panels are locked with 1/2" overshoot on locking strips. The water that always gets in there is then on the valley side of the lock strip, not the outer hemmed edge side.
The list could go on.

We have an installation manager who visit the the job daily. He also does a job walk / roof walk at the end of the project with the crew and HO or GC, during which any questions or concerns are addressed.

Any installation concerns can be cleared up by going to the manufacturers web site to confirm proper installation via the installation manual.
