ASTEC - Congratulates one of its Regional Directors on achieving the Registered Roof Observer status.
Dec. 6th – BINGHAMTON, NY - Astec Re-Ply Roofing, a world leader in seamless roofing and exterior coating technology, today congratulates Tony Loup, one of our west coast regional directors for becoming a Registered Roof Observer certified by the RCI (Roof Consultants Institute).
An RRO is also known as a roof quality assurance observer. A roof quality observer monitors materials installation throughout the course of a roofing project and regularly submits reports to the design team. A roof observer is the design team’s on-site witness to ensure compliance with design details, warranty terms, standards, and conditions. According to ASTM Standard D7186-05, “Quality assurance observation of roofing projects is an important process for determining if the removal, installation, repair, or maintenance of roofing materials or systems follow the scope and intent of the contract documents and are installed and executed in accordance with accepted roofing practices and the contract documents.”
Astec supports its employees in pursuing advanced knowledge of all aspects of the roofing and waterproofing industry. The Astec Re-Ply Roofing systems have been promoting building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings for over 30 years.
