QUALITY CONTROL
Workmanship is still the number one cause for roof failures and litigation no matter what type of materials, system, or brand name is being installed.

With single ply roofs we typically sampling a seam weld on a single-ply roof on a big box project in Idaho Falls. The sample will be sent to a lab to ensure that the weld meets the manufacturer's specified tolerances.  Independent inspection is more reliable than a salesman's reports on project quality.

This built-up roof "fluttered" in the wind indicating that it could blow off at any time.  Subsequent inspection revealed that there were only about 26% of the required fasteners to ptovide the wind resistance needed for this area.  The orange dots are where the nails were supposed to be, the black dots show where they were.
On this high rise project we found the roofing crew installing wet insulation onto a wet and dirty roof.  The ribbons of foam adhesive did not comply with the wind uplift requirements for installing insulation on the concrete deck.
