Certified Roof Professional 500.00

Wanting to learn about roof inspections or certifications simply to advance your education in those areas? As a Certified Roof Professional, you will be able to become an academia expert in the field of roof inspections and certifications. With this knowledge, you will be able to enhance your ability to advise your current clients on roofing issues, whether they are home buyers or sellers, lendees, insurance buyers, etc.

Certified Roof Inspector 1,200.00

As a Certified Roof Inspector, you will be able to perform NRCIA's patent-pending VisualROOF® inspection process to both residential and commercial properties as well as issue LeakFREE® Roof Certifications. First, you will receive inspection leads from the NRCIA and search for both necessary roof repair work and for conditions which might cause a roof leak in the future. Then you will access our easy-to-use reporting software to generate a written roof inspection report, complete with digital photographs, detailed notes and an estimate of repair costs. Lastly, if you find that the roof qualifies for NRCIA's LeakFREE Roof Certification, then you will be able to certify the roof with a leak-free warranty.

Forensic Roof Inspector 1,200.00

As a Forensic Roof Inspector, you will be able to perform roof inspections that are specific or technical in nature for court and legal purposes. You are required to have expertise in one or more of these areas: testing for asbestos presence, mold presence or water; evaluating code compliance, manufacturer's installation, specification compliance, or previous workmanship quality; inspecting walking decks; determining roof slope, ponding and drainage, or structural engineering analysis.

NRCIA Authorized Contractor 2,500.00

As a NRCIA Authorized Contractor, you will be able to perform the activities of a Certified Roof Inspector (inspecting residential and commercial roofs, creating the internet-based inspection report and qualifying a roof with a LeakFREE Roof Certification) as well as perform roof repairs and replacements. If a roof does not qualify for a LeakFREE Roof Certification, you have the opportunity to bid on repairs that NRCIA inspectors have documented as needing to be repaired for a LeakFREE Roof Certification. You can also generate your own inspection and repair leads by networking with the real estate community including brokers, agents, home inspectors, termite companies, lenders, property management companies, insurance agents and escrow companies.
