What Does Haag Certification Mean?

It means that the Texas Traditions Team is professionally trained in advanced damage assessment techniques.

In the roofing industry, the Haag name is very well known as a forensic engineering and consulting firm specializing in failure analysis, determining extent of damage and providing repair options.  They developed a certification program for roofing contractors where their engineers teach a three-day intensive training session.

The program teaches participants how hail and wind interact with various roofing types, how to perform inspections safely and provides an understanding of roof area calculations and applicable codes. Contractors attending also gain comprehensive knowledge of manufacture, installation, weathering, hail damage, wind damage, maintenance, mechanical damage and repair costs for every major roofing type including composition, wood shingle/shake, concrete and clay tile, asbestos, fiber cement, and various synthetic, slate and metal.

Not just any contractor can sign up for training either. Experience matters. To be eligible to participate in the Haag Certification course, students must have completed a minimum of 100 residential roof inspections as the primary on-roof inspector.

Why should this matter to you?

It matters because you can rest assured that when Texas Traditions Roofing performs a free damage inspection, we understand what signs to look for and where to look, because we have been trained by engineers in advanced damage assessment techniques.

We won’t overlook areas that may be missed by other contractors who have not received advanced training. Problems caused by severe weather events aren’t always visible to the naked eye and often require a more intensive inspection.
