|Why hire ConSpecT as your roof consultant|
|Know - how||Nothing substitutes for having the right kind of experience and training. In the roof consulting business, this means being certified as a Registered Roof Consultant (RRC). There are only 350+/- roof consultants in all of North America who are duly certified by RCI, with the broad-based experience and mandated roof education needed to stay abreast of changing building codes and current technology to use the RRC designation.
|Advocacy||With ConSpecT, you will get roof professionals who are truly independent. We have no ties with roofing product manufacturers or contractors. We will base our recommendations on what are the best solutions for your building, and what is within your budget capabilities, and needs.|
|Savings||Protect against costly errors from poor design and installation short cuts that could result in your need to buy a new roof before it is needed. Periodic maintenance inspections and follow-up repair verification will maximize the roof system’s useful life-cycle and can improve the owners return on investment.|
|Specialized Knowledge||Your best interests are served by those who work with numerous types of roof challenges every day, has the necessary code & roof industry reference knowledge, keeps up with changes in the industry, and is familiar with the skills and attributes of available contractors and product manufacturers.|
|Recognized Expertise||All RRC’s (Registered Roof Consultants) must recertify annually with documented continuing education, and must also sign a certification to abide by the RCI code of ethics with RRC forfeiture being the result of any performance breach. ConSpecT’s principals have also won awards, authored numerous nationally published technical roofing articles and have taught numerous roofing courses for other professionals and the public.|
|Time||Roofs are often not the highest priority of building owners or managers (out of site - out of mind syndrome). Putting a RRC (Registered Roof Consultant) in charge allows your staff more time to focus on profitable work, minimize production downtime from leaky roofs, and protect your interior content and image.|
