The Invasive Inspection

CALL FOR PRICING

Do you know you need repairs done, siding or roofs replaced, and are seeking expert guidance through the process? A visual inspection looks for clues, but an invasive inspection is the true x-ray or MRI that shows you the problem and extent of damage. This is where we actually pull siding off to see what’s underneath to understand if defects or damage are present.  Having a good understanding of what you are getting into is the best way to avoid expensive change orders for those hidden conditions.
