HAAG Certified

HAAG Certified Commercial Roof Inspector

The Mark of a True Professional

“Haag Certified.” In the roofing and insurance industries, that phrase carries a lot of weight. It means Frontier Roofing Systems Inc (FRS)  is a true authority in our field. It means FRS can quickly and accurately inspect roofs for damage and correctly evaluate that damage. And it means that when FRS reports our findings, our conclusions have true credibility.

An Important Competitive Advantage

For roofing inspectors, commercial or residential, Haag Certification is the credential to have. With the scientifically based damage assessment techniques gained in the certification course, we enjoy significant career benefits. Haag certification will increase our value as a roof inspector to our clients. Our Certification should very well be the “reason we get called” over another, non-certified inspector. Our certification can also be a crucial “tie breaker,” the extra authority that gets our findings accepted if we find ourselves at odds with another inspector who has reached a different conclusion. As a Haag Certified inspector we simply have skills and knowledge other inspectors don’t. It’s great for our professional reputation.

HAAGS Program

Haag offers intensive three-day courses covering Residential Roofs, Commercial Roofs, and is designed for the intermediate-level professional.  The more roofing experience that an attendee has the more that attendees will get from the course.  The courses combine damage assessment training with comprehensive testing to ensure proficiency.

Commercial Roof Inspector Certification

In the Haag Certified Inspector – Commercial Roof Inspector program, FRS learned to assess damage to all major types of commercial (low-slope and flat) roofing systems. FRS became well versed in inspection safety, roof area calculations, codes and industry standards, and weather characteristics. For each roofing type discussed, instructors profile manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs. The course covered built-up roofing, polymer-modified bitumen roofing, thermoplastic single-ply roofs (PVC and TPO), thermoset plastic single-ply roofs (EPDM, CSPE, PIB), SPF roofing, metal roofing, vegetated (green) roofing, low-slope roofing components, and roof coatings. Case studies illustrate real-world inspection scenarios.

Residential Roof Inspector Certification

The Haag Certified Inspector – Residential Roof program made FRS highly proficient with all major types of residential (steep-slope) roofs. FRS learned how hail and wind interact with roofing, inspection safety techniques, roof area calculations, and applicable codes. FRS also gain comprehensive understanding of manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs for each major roofing type — composition, wood shingle/shake, concrete and clay tile, asbestos, fiber cement, and various synthetic, slate, and metal roofing types. Real-world case studies make the information vivid and memorable.
