Roofs

Why has “a roof over your head” become synonymous with comfort and shelter?  Given the number of typical roofing problems, the expression should more accurately connote dripping ceilings and headaches.

From green roofs to historic slate, we know the issues, and we know the solution.

Inappropriate design.  Poor installation. Severe weather.  Old age.  Whatever the cause, roof leaks can quickly lead to interior and structural damage.  How do you know where to find the leak, how to fix it, or whether it’s time for a new roof?

You call us.  Hoffmann Architects has been resolving roofing distress for over three decades. Our services for roofs include:

• Leak investigation
• On-site and laboratory testing and analysis
• Structural evaluation
• Document review
• Waterproofing consultation
• Repair/replacement/rehabilitation design
• Maintenance planning
• Materials selection and specification
• Bidding assistance
• Contract administration and project oversight

We’ve seen it all:  flat roofs, such as built-up, sheet, and fluid-applied, as well as high-slope roofing, including metal, clay, asphalt, and stone.  We’re also versed in the considerations of living roofs, cool roofs, and other emerging technologies.
