Thank you guys! I started writing the script three years ago this past December. I’ve got something around 2500 hours into this set of roof videos. There’s more to come.
The information came from:
- material retailers
- material manufacturers
- roof consultants
- the insurance industry
- quarry operators
- code books
- material data sheets
- installation booklets
- technical books from the CU engineering library
The photos came from driving around Boulder and Denver, CO, and parts of coastal CA, along with a few contributions from inspectors across the US.
Although these are comprehensive, they are actually somewhat shortened versions. The full versions that will allow graduates to use the InterNACHI Certified Roof Inspector designation will be out later this summer.
Still, you’ll find information in here that you won’t find anywhere else, like a clear explanation of batch problems with asphalt shingles.
I don’t post as often as I used to. I’m working on developing inspection industries in Australia, South America, and the UK, and that involves a lot of writing for the websites.
