Science of Roofing: Core Sample Testing
Question: What happens after a core sample is taken from my roof?
Answer: Once we get a core sample into the lab, we first assign it a tracking number. From there, we walk it through our PreVision process, which includes mechanical and analytical tests, along with chemical tests. Once all these tests are performed, we assign it a rating. That rating number is combined with the data from the visual inspection and our proprietary software program to provide us a scientific calculation of the roof’s remaining useful life.
