WHAT TO EXPECT
Before the Storm
Determine if the existing manufacturer/contractor warranty is still valid to potentially lessen
the financial burden.
Identify any leaks and determine if they can be temporarily repaired ahead of the storm.
Complete a comprehensive roof and exterior wall system inspection and assessment to ensure your
building enclosure is as secure as possible.
Establish performance expectations at pre-negotiated rates for disaster response.
After the Storm
Assess the severity of weather-related damage to the building’s exterior.
Conduct an infrared or nuclear moisture scan of the roof to identify any “below the roof” issues.
Use Garland’s Comprehensive Laboratory Effective Analysis Reporting Program (CLEAR™) to
conduct a roof sample assessment analysis.
Determine if a temporary emergency roof solution is needed to minimize interior damage.
Input roof and exterior wall inspection data into Garland’s Roof Asset Management Program (RAMP®).
Provide report with analysis of existing conditions, emergency needs and long-term solutions.
