Improve the quality of your roof maintenance program with a roof inspection app. You’ll benefit from large cost savings and increased maintenance team effectiveness. So, equip your team with Lumiform’s Roof Inspection Software.
Conducting roof inspections can be quite tedious because it needs a lot of equipment such as ladders and harnesses. And when taking notes manually, the inspector also needs to carry pens and a bunch of paper to take notes, check the roof plan, and fill out the work order. This process takes a lot of time and effort that could’ve been allotted to other maintenance tasks. Switching to a roof inspection app only requires bringing one electronic device that contains the software.
Nowadays, taking pictures during roof inspection has become essential because it presents evidence of what’s causing the issue and proof if there have been fixes made. And when this is done manually, the process can be quite tedious because the image needs to be printed, attached to the report, and then archived. Using a roof inspection software makes the handling of media files easier as it enables the inspector to automatically attach a picture to the digital report.
From time to time, data regarding roof issues need to be presented in order to justify replacements needed. For example, replacement of the roof waterproofing can cost thousands of dollars. And one of the effective ways for this cost to be justified is by presenting the data of its current state, the cost of damages caused by roof leaks, and the cost of repairs done to fix the leaks. A roof inspection software will collect all needed data and then sum it up in one report.

Switching from using manual roof inspection methods to a commercial roof inspection software brings a lot of advantages to the table which, in the long run, provides large cost savings and boosts the effectiveness of the maintenance team.
Besides the advantages of flexibility and easy modifications, using a software for your roof inspections facilitates communication and collaboration across your entire organization and even beyond.
In large commercial establishments, there are varying frequencies of roof inspections. They can be scheduled daily, weekly, or monthly, and each has a different scope of work. After the inspection is done, a report will be made and then archived. However, not every team member will be able to freely go to the office and read the report because they also have other duties that need attending to and maybe not the necessary access, especially if your team operates across state-borders.
Using a roof inspection app eliminates this issue. For once a report inspection has been made in the software, the team members will be notified and are able to access the report and read it. With Lumiform’s internal audit software you can assign roles, restrict an d open access and permit commenting on reports so that every team member can voice their thoughts and opinions.
Accountability refers to the worker’s quality of being responsible for the tasks assigned to them. Meaning that workers fully accept their duties and that they are willing to be held liable in case that they have failed to do their job. In a manual inspection setting, workers still have the capacity to become accountable. However, in cases when they’re not supervised and the sun is blazing hot during their daily roof inspections, they might be tempted to just forego the inspection process and just create a made-up report.
However, when using a roof inspection software, workers become aware that their movements are being tracked in real-time. Instilling in them the need to responsibly do their duties and create an accurate report.
With a roof inspection report app you can not only establish accountability but also guarantee better accessibility of reports, which can also be helpful for future use and reference purposes.
Using a roof inspection software enables quick generation of reports-whenever and wherever. So, unlike the manual documentation methods that involve going into the archives and manually retrieving a report, all that needs to be done is log in to the app and then select a date. Then, the roof report app will automatically bring up the report-complete with details and images.
This also means that managers and executives can easily access these reports in case they need them. Thus, removing the need for an employee to retrieve the report, scan it, and send it to them.
In order to create a comprehensive roof inspection report, it should contain these details:
One of the most common roof inspection concerns, especially for large commercial establishments, is that the location of found issues (like leaks and damages) can be easily forgotten even if it was ink-marked on the site plan. Another issue would be an incorrect location marker was placed on the site plan.
A roof inspection software can easily solve this problem because it can automatically put accurate location markers on the site plan thanks to the GPS technology that smartphones have.
Using a helpful digital tool, such as an app or software to support your team during roof inspections can benefit you in many ways. While it helps you save time and paper, it is also a convenient option as opposed that helps you generate automatic reports and analyses and keeps all your documentation accessible in one place.
Use an app to accurately assess the condition of a roof on site, and keep everything up to date at all times. Add photos, assign tasks immediately and optimize your workflow by standardizing inspections.
