Zip Level Survey: For roofing inspections, the zip level is a valuable tool for measuring the elevations of different sections of the roof, such as flat roofs like Built-up Roof (BUR), Modified Bitumen (Mod-Bit), Concrete, TPO, EPDM, PVC, and more. Analyzing the roof’s slopes and angles helps assess the overall condition and integrity of the roofing system. The zip level system can identify issues such as ponding, sagging roof decks, installation errors like crushed insulation, and more, providing valuable insights into the roof’s health and potential defects.
