That’s why our company has employees who became Haag Certified Roofing Inspectors.
WHAT IS HAAG?
Haag is actually the last name of the founder of Haag Engineering, a multi-faceted firm specializing in residential and commercial forensic engineering. Walter G. Haag, a civil engineer, established the company way back in 1924 to examine why structures, materials, components and products fail or do not function as designed. In its research and testing laboratory, Haag engineers assess roof damage, whether it’s from storm damage, improper installation, manufacturing defects, or mechanical-related causes.
This expertise is the foundation of the Haag Certified Roof Inspection (HCI-R) program. The training and testing program educates roof inspectors, adjusters, roofers and other professionals working in the roofing industry on how to apply forensic engineering principles to roofing systems. Those who successfully complete the program are certified as an authority in roof inspections. As such, whenever you see the Haag Certified Inspector emblem, you know that you are doing business with an expert in the roofing business.
HAAG’S RIGOROUS TRAINING
Before anyone at Campopiano Roofing could become a Haag certified roof inspector, they first had to be the primary roof inspector on at least 100 residential roof inspections to meet Haag’s experience requirements. Once approved, they had to undergo a rigorous program that consisted of intensive training on all aspects of roofing systems and their applications, in-depth reviews of case studies that depict real-world inspection situations, and comprehensive testing that demonstrated their understanding of the course materials.
Here are just some of the topics covered during our participation in the Haag residential and commercial certified roof inspector program:
- Roof inspection techniques
- Inspection safety techniques
- Roof area calculations
- How to assess damage to all types of residential and commercial roofs using scientifically-based techniques
- Manufacturing, installation, maintenance, mechanical damage, storm damage and weathering factors of all residential roof types
- How hail and wind impact roofing
- Roof repair versus roof replacement analysis
