A Roof Report And Survey That Will Cost You Nothing, But Save You Thousands…..

Ensuring all bases are covered with in-depth pre-tender roof reports and surveys

For over 40 years, the teams at Maguire Brothers have often found themselves being asked to undertake roofing works that on paper seem very straight forward but, when the teams get to site present many unforeseen challenges. Challenges that could often have been picked up and resolved at the design stage.

We have worked with most consultants and manufacturers over the last forty years and one view that seems to have remained constant is that it is much easier to specify a roofing project, than it is to undertake one.

The missing factor can often be described as ‘build-ability.’ The understanding of how a project goes together and the logistics involved.

For that reason, we offer a variety of commercial roofing professional services. These include surveys, reports, recommendations, budget prices etc. The service is designed to enable us to work in partnership with clients and consultants at concept and design stage, sharing our experience to help put together the most efficient and economical method of delivering the project.

Because we are not tied to any particular system or manufacturer, we are able to offer independent, unbiased advice.

Our approach starts by getting a comprehensive brief to make sure we understand exactly what the client is trying to achieve.

Then we can look at access and logistics, which may in themselves dictate the best system to use.

Studying the roof build up and condition are also important factors and to help do this we prefer to take core samples, rather than relying on hearsay and building records.

Roofs are a favourite location for plant, including air handling units, PV and solar arrays and mobile phone masts, which clutter the roof surface, sometimes presenting a challenge akin to re-carpeting a restaurant without moving the tables and chairs.

When it comes to roofing materials and systems, the options are endless. However, client budgets certainly aren’t, and to avoid the cost of a project skyrocketing once started, it is critical that thorough investigation and planning is undertaken right at the very beginning.

Our reports offer consultants and their clients peace of mind, an accurate budget and a thorough understanding of what is required and why, to enable them to achieve their objectives. Moreover, all that before tenders are even sent out.

So if you or your clients are planning any roofing works for 2021, and you want to ensure that all bases are covered before tendering the works, get in touch with one of our team today here.
