Water intrusion and wind damage can cost your business a fortune. So can residents filing dubious insurance claims.

The HiMark Roof Consulting, Inc. Forensic Services System
Our principal consultant, Mr. Alan Kidd, has over 30 years of experience in evaluating building envelope issues and has developed a precise and meticulous method for determining faults and testing building envelope permeability.
At HiMark Roof Consulting, Inc., we investigate the products and parts of any building. While we specialize in roof engineering, we evaluate the building envelope as a whole—from your home’s foundations up to its fascia.
Our process works according to the following system:
Our forensic service begins with a full inspection of the materials and construction of the building envelope of any commercial or residential building. Beginning with the roof (our area of expertise), we hunt for vulnerabilities, examining any and all of the following (as applies):
- Cladding and exterior siding
- Flashing, shingles, and roof sheathing
- Windows and doors
- Basements, foundations, and drainage systems
- Eavestroughs and gutters
Using data and measurements we collect from your property, including photographic evidence, we create a full report on the conditions of your building envelope. This comprehensive document also contains a section on the magnitude of repairs required, if necessary.
