It’s important to know what makes pitched roof inspections truly effective: understanding your roofing clients’ needs and the importance of a clear brief.

Picture this: you’re gearing up for a new project, but before you even set foot on the roof, you’ve got to get inside the head of your client. Their needs, expectations, and long-term goals should be your goal throughout the entire process.

Without a clear and rock-solid brief from your roofing client, you’re basically flying blind. The brief is your roadmap to success, guiding every step of your survey to make sure it aligns perfectly with what your client wants.

Considering Long-Term Plans

Speaking of which, let’s talk long-term plans. What’s your roofing client’s vision for the future? Are they looking to redevelop the
site in the near future, or are they planning to lease it for an extended period? Knowing this information is key because it shapes the recommendations you’ll be making. You want your survey to be tailored – perfectly fitted to your client’s needs and plans.

Gathering Historical Information

Dive into the history of the building, and you’ll uncover a goldmine of insights. Speak to the existing tenants about what problems they
have experienced. Information about the roof’s history, any past problems, copies of reports and quotations can all give insights into previous and recurring problems and ensure you make recommendations to avoid them in the future.

Maximising Survey Effectiveness

So, armed with all this knowledge, you’ll hit the site running. This isn’t just another routine inspection—it’s a personalised experience, crafted specifically for your roofing client.
