Residential Roof Inspector Certification
The Haag Certified Inspector – Residential Roofs program is designed to educate participants on all major types of residential (steep-slope) roofs. Paradigm has had extensive training through this program to learn how hail and wind interact with roofing, inspection safety techniques, roof area calculations, and applicable codes. Through this course we have also gained comprehensive understanding of manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs for each major roofing type — composition, wood shingle/shake, concrete and clay tile, asbestos, fiber cement, and various synthetic, slate, and metal roofing types. Exposure to real-world case studies has made the information vivid and memorable- to best serve our customers with the most relevant knowledge in the industry.
Wind Damage Inspector Certification
Holding Haag’s Wind Damage Certification shows that a graduate has an advanced understanding of wind types and related wind effects, for the purpose of accurately inspecting and assessing an entire building following a wind event. Participants gain an in-depth understanding of all types of wind events (straight-line, tornadic, downburst, hurricane) and their effects on major types of steep-slope and low-slope roofing systems. This program increased our knowledge on the advanced techniques to evaluate and document damage to an entire building envelope (not just the roof) following a wind event. Through this course Paradigm has developed the skills to differentiate wind damage from conditions caused by other factors, both natural and mechanical- giving you on opinion and assessment you can trust to be accurate.
