Registered Roof Observers (RRO)/Roof Monitoring
USACE Projects require a Registered Roof Observer (RRO) . Systems Building Envelope Consultants have been RROs through the Roof Consultants Institute (RCI) since 1997
USACE projects are now requiring the presence of an Registered Roof Observer (RRO) to perform daily oversight and quality control on all roof work. Even in advance of USACE requirements, our staff's credentials has already met that challenge.
RRO Roof consultants plan roof design solutions, perform evaluations of existing roofs, prepare construction documents, perform forensic inspections, monitor construction and serve as expert witnesses. Roof consultants possess a broad base of practical knowledge about the roofing industry at large. Many choose to focus their work and become experts on specific roof types and materials. Roofing Quality Assurance Observers monitor the construction process. They strive to make sure the roof is built to code and specification. They work to assure proper application procedures are followed and that criteria for validation of manufacturer's warranties are met.
Other roofing specialties include designing, specifying repairs or replacement and managing roofing, waterproofing and exterior wall systems. Our senior building science consultants also specialize in forensic investigation, expert witness testimony and construction document preparation.
Our RRO's operate without conflict of interest, and are not connected with any manufacturer or product. They strive to be unbiased and are governed by an established code of ethics. We keep a working knowledge of the latest industry technologies and methodologies. We are committed to maintaining annual requirements for continuing education.
