Photo Reports

Photos are taken at every roof visit. These photos are reviewed by management to ensure the work was done correctly and then provided to our clients.  They are before-and-after style photos that show exactly what was fixed.


Understanding and Explaining with Photos

How can you possibly know what work was done on the roof without photos? You could read about it but you might not always know which part of the roof is being referred to or what type of vents.  It is so much easier to understand and explain with photos.  This is why Detail Roofing takes photos of each repair, before and after.


Simple or Complicated Roof Repairs

For more complicated repairs, like replacing a piece of membrane, there will be a series of photos taken as the work is done.  This way it is always available for the Property Manager to check and verify.  Photos are proof.

Detail Roofing keeps an extensive database of photos so that each part of the roof can be looked at over time.  When your Condominium board has questions and wants to refer to previous years, the information is available.

Estimators and Roofing Technicians Take Photos

Estimators take photos when they visit a roof and they put those photos in the proposal.  They also identify the areas of the roof for reference using satellite photos.  After the quote is approved and technicians attend to make required repairs, they take photos of the roof before, during and after the repairs are done.  This means that if anything has changed in the time between when the Estimator took photos and the Roofing Technicians attended, it will be documented.  This makes your job as a Property Manager much easier.  It leaves less room for guessing.


Management Review of Work Done

Another great advantage of photo documentation is that it’s not just the person who took the photos that looks.  The management team at Detail Roofing reviews all photos before a quote is sent out or a job is considered completed.  Having several experienced sets of eyes means higher expectations for Technicians and better quality work for you.


Photos Make for Better Communication and Project Hand-Off

The photos taken by the estimator are shown to the technicians before they start the job.  This way, they know exactly what they are supposed to do.  It becomes the work order.  This reduces wasted time and questions.  It makes Detail Roofing more efficient to work with.

Roof leaks happen at all times of day or night.  If there’s water coming into a unit  it is an emergency.  Luckily Detail Roofing has roofing technicians available 24/7.

Is the Roof Leak an Emergency?

If the roof is actively leaking it is an emergency. You should not allow a leak to continue for the following reasons:

  • The water is breaking down the wood fibers and causing rot and decay.
  • This decay leads to mold growth.
  • The mold spores get in the air and cause respiratory problems for the residents.
  • Water continues to spread above the ceiling into ventilation leading to more interior damage.
  • Water come into contact with the electrical wiring and could cause a fire.
  • The source of the leak will get weaker allowing water in at a faster rate. The additional pressure will cause more damage.
  • Carpets, floors, furniture and other contents will be damaged.
  • The building structure will be damaged.

All of these consequences will end up costing more than simply getting the roof leak repaired as soon as possible.

Detail Roofing is available to make repairs day or night, 365 days a year so there is no sense in waiting and allowing damage to continue.

Is the Leak Coming From the Roof?

You know there’s an active leak but aren’t sure if it’s coming from the roof or plumbing pipes.  How can you tell?  Who should you call? Locating a water leak is not an easy task.  The important thing is to not wait.  Even if you’re not sure it’s best to call someone.  The worst that can happen is one contractor comes to the location and identifies that it is not a leak they can deal with and you’ll have to try the other contractor.  At least you’re one step closer to getting it fixed and mitigating the damage.

Chances are it’s a roof leak if:

  • It has rained or snowed recently.
  • Gutters have not been cleaned lately.
  • The ventilation system is not working well.
  • There is noticeable damage to shingles or soffit.
  • There are or were icicles hanging off the roof.
  • There have been major weather events lately. (high winds causing flying debris)


When a call that comes in at night because a roof in a townhouse complex is leaking and water is entering the unit be sure to call Detail Roofing for a quick repair.
